My Professional-Training Class is mainly influenced by the Gaga technique and combines several teaching methods. It introduces new sensations, textures and physicality and will deepen the understanding of the body as a complex tool-by maximize the connection between the brain and the body in order to maintain a smart functioning body and to avoid injuries. The class is a self-research process where dancers get to learn more about the usage of the body through exercises and improvisation.
