About

In his class Hugo wishes not only to solely teach technique, but foremost to help participants in finding pleasure in classical dance through raising the awareness of the movement and working on musicality. You will be encouraged to work through the center of the body, using floor exercises, breathing and elongation of the spine. Through work on the morphological body placement, the bar section of the class is preparing the entire body for more complex dancing sequences in the middle. The anatomical awareness allows to avoid injuries and enables to build ballet technique on grounds of knowing the one`s instrument – the body. The class consists of exercises that vary in quality, speed and dynamics and develop musicality. The class develops from simple exercises and bar towards more complex middle section sequences that incorporate big jumps and turns, which are Hugo’s trademarks. Hugo's ballet is inspired by his professional ballet experience as well as knowledge of various dance techniques. He emphasizes the importance of encountering and training different dance styles in order to become a complete dancer.
