The class is aimed at performing ballet with a starting point of inner focus. It is based on the feeling of the body, contact with the imaginary and anatomical interior. Exploring ballet involves visualization exercises that lead to a specific form of movement. More than the visual image of the body observed from a distance, the physical content that we reveal through dance will mean more to us during exercise.
