Class is consists of two parts. In the first part we focus on general physical preparation of the dancer, we are interested in stamina, strength, coordination and flexibility. The aim of the second part is to acquire and interpret a dance combination, the motto of which is:

  • think together with the body
  • floor is dancer's partner
  • where in space the body lives and where it travels
  • when body moves fast it thinks slow and when the body moves slow it thinks fast
  • the rythm – dramaturgy of the body
