ABOUT MY WORK

The goal of improvisation classes is to develop the students into dance personalities, to open them up to flexibility, spontaneity and sensitivity based upon a foundation of sound knowledge.

Through specific tasks and mutual analyses, the students are shown new ways and possibilities for nuanced dance characterisation. Through improvisation, they learn to understand their artistic development as a creative process within the context of constant changes and influences.
