About Me

Bollywood dance

* It is a combination of various indian dance forms like kathak and bharatnatyam ,garba, garba and an assimilation of various colors,moves,styles and languages of the vibrant and varied Indian subcontinent.

* So, if you like to do Bollywood or any other kind of dance and can’t figure out how or if you like to dance and would like to proceed to the next level just I am here to help and get you to the dance mode where you’ll be dancing like and everyone will be watching !

* My classes are customized according to the dancing level , style and preferences of the students and there is always the rhythm and musicality element that I focus on while teaching any dance rather than the technicalities . After all a moment without having fun is a moment wasted while dancing !!!


Yoga

* Since the age of 5 I have been doing Hath yoga as a medium to connect the mind , body and soul . I am an ardent believe of keeping your physical as well as your mental health in order for which yoga is the main foundation for me.
* During my teenage I was a member of Art of loving foundation where I learnt the deep learning and details about this beautiful world.
* After that I have been mainly practicing yoga on my own and since last year I started teaching it as well.
* My yoga class is based on 3 parts .
First part focuses on a few breathing exercise where the connection to the breath is made . Second part consists of the poses /Asanas of hath yoga that help in ventilating the breath through to the different body parts such as arms , legs , stomach , lower back , neck and thereby the entire body. The last and conclusive part is meant for the soul to empty everything from the mind and meditate and relive all the stress and anxiety accumulated in the body and the mind.
It is very often perceived that yoga is only for flexible people but that’s not true.
* Yoga is about the prana , the breath , the Body and the mind . So leave , all your inhibitions aside and enter the world of zen and yoga with me !

Super leuke bollywood les gehad van Kanika ter voorbereiding op een pakistaans huwelijk. Kanika was erg enthousiast en heel behulptzaam bij het opzetten van een dansoptreden.
Heel goed
Yoga is an assimilation of mind, body and soul. In our fast paced stressful life we need a moment to relax , breathe and connect the body to the soul. In my class, we start first with a few breathing exercises to let you first empty on your mind. Then we focus on certain asanas or poses to let the breath Connect with a body part while remaining in the pose. The last 10 mins I focus on the meditative part where we connect to the soul with the help of our breathe. My class is designed to make you feel relaxed and establish a connection with yourself. Even if you have no experience in yoga before you are welcome to join and feel the benefits of this wonderful word of yoga.

Private belly dance webcam lesson (Skype, Zoom or Google Meets)
Oriental dance is a dance of Egyptian origin, which includes many styles. Originally, it was a spontaneous and improvised dance, but today it is taught academically all over the world. It is traditionally practiced by women, who express by this art their femininity, their vitality, but also their feelings, joys and sorrows. In general, this dance is characterized by the dissociation of the parts of the body (isolations) that can move independently of one another. Oriental dance is as good with jerky rhythms as slow and fluid. Bellydance is not limited to movements of the pelvis: it solicits flexibility and tonicity of the bust, shoulders, arms, hands, pelvis and belly. It helps tone the thighs, relax the joints, develop the abdominals and maintain the back. Most of the work resides in the muscular contraction, this dance can be practiced at any age, in the respect of the limits of each dancer or dancer. The course begins with a joint and muscle warm-up, followed by technical work. The basic movements are then integrated into sequences that allow you to move in space and experience the pleasure of dancing, before ending with a session of relaxation.

Vaganova ballet (method of the Bolshoi and Marinskii theatres) group classes of 4+ students
What was Mikhail Barishnikov, Rudolf Nureyev, Natalia Osipova, and all the other Russian dancers’ secret to success? The one thing they all have in common is their training in the Russian ballet method of Vaganova. This professional method has been developed over the decades to become the most effective method in the world. The grandeur of the legendary Russian Bolshoi and Marinskii theatres speak for themselves. For this reason, I have gone to Russia to study for my bachelors in this method at the University of Moscow, and together with my collective experience in teaching ballet, am waiting to train you to become the next ballet legend. WHAT DO CLASSES LOOK LIKE? Each lesson is 1 hour 30 minutes, the sweet spot between length of attention span, physical endurance span, and building stamina. Ballet classes are structured according to the Russian ballet method of Vaganova, and body conditioning classes include professionally developed exercises specifically for dancers. I customize lessons to work on what my students most need, and therefore weak spots are attended to until they are wiped out. Lessons are conducted online in the convenience of your own home, saving both time and transport costs. WILL YOU BENEFIT FROM THESE LESSONS? My lessons are for you if you any one of the following scenarios describes your situation: 1) YOU DO NOT ATTEND ANY OTHER BALLET CLASSES - classes include a full syllabus, examinations are optional, and you can therefore attend my online lessons as your only source of ballet. 2) YOU ALREADY ATTEND OTHER BALLET LESSONS - I also offer the option for you to take these classes as a supplementary addition to classes at your studio in order to boost your scores in exams and competitions, and improve your technique, strength, allegro, and stability in pirouettes, balance, and pointe. This gives you the chance of becoming the new class hero, and enjoy the freedom of dancing without worrying about stamina, faulty technique, low leg height, weak allegro, and gruesome posture. 3) YOU ARE A DANCER, BUT YOU DO NOT DO BALLET - my body conditioning classes are beneficial for dancers of all genres. It teaches complete control over the body, promoting stability, strength, leg height, good balance and stamina. WHAT LEVELS DO I TEACH? I currently teach beginner, intermediate and semi-advanced levels (RAD levels would translate as all levels up to Advanced 1), for children from age 10+ and adults. Although I am qualified to teach higher levels, I currently do not have time to choreograph full classes at such high intensity and complication. ABOUT DANÉ - I am an experienced ballet teacher who loves ballet, people and teaching. To make it more interesting, here is my experience starting now and going backward: Currently I am studying at the university of Moscow where I have been voted the best student of the institute by my lecturers, and have attained cum laude so far in all my subjects. I began studying for my bachelors in Moscow September 2020. I have 14 subjects including the Russian ballet method of Vaganova and several other dance styles, body conditioning for dancers, choreography, music and acting. Due to current events I study online from South Africa for now. In my free time I teach ballet and write scripts for productions, sometimes staging my choreography when time allows. Prior to this, I studied Russian for a year in Kazan, Russia (this is a requirement if you study choreography in Moscow). Before going to Russia I founded and directed my own ballet school in Johannesburg from 2017-2019, and staged 3 productions. During this time I trained with the Russian School of Ballet in South Africa, attained a distinction for my exam and took part in their production at the Roodepoort State Theatre. Before this I trained with the RAD with many distinctions up to Advanced 1, but changed to the Russian method just before taking my Advanced 2 exam (if you take classes with me you will understand why;)). Furthermore, I won countless gold, A+ and special awards in festivals, eisteddfods and competitions, several of them including my own choreography. I was part of a theatre group from 2016-2017, where I performed the lead role in the Roodepoort State Theatre. I have done ballet since 2003, and was schooled in an American syllabus from grade 1 to graduation.

According to your desire, it is possible to propose 70% of a 1st dance, 30% of another complementary dance, the bases of the one influencing the other. Whether you're preparing "choreography" for a special event (wedding, birthday, work, etc.), a show, or just looking to improve your skills to impress on the dance floor, the end learning of these classes is to : * perform a beautiful interpretation of the music with appropriate movements, in addition to performing a dynamic work that involves a footwork and body movements adapted * execute an appropriate technique that will allow you to shine quickly on the dance floor, relying on the strong point of private lessons * Set up style, movement, footwork, and adjusted body coordination, allowing for rapid dance progression, while taking advanced base steps and a variety of movements, allowing you to not only acquire a sensual style but also to improve his own improvisational abilities, focusing on the characteristics of modern dance. * work on your balance, your musicality, your body strength (...), while having fun, while you train and radically improve your body coordination.

Hip Hop and Ragga Jam lessons. Everyone has an artistic potential, you just have to want to develop it.
I base my lessons on fun and step by step. Teaching dance is for me to support students in the perception of their bodies. My pedagogy consists in allowing them to feel their movement themselves. The dance class is a special moment, a time of discovery, of pleasure which, admittedly, requires rigor, precision, investment and involvement but also allows everyone to develop their creativity and their own expression in the world.

HipHop classes are available in various levels with various instructors. All of my classes will learn choreography each class (with the exception of HipHop Foundation/Technique classes).

Stretching Circus - learn the balancing act! Private lessons & more
Do you want to learn the balancing act, do you need more flexibility for your sport or do you want to become more flexible in general? Did your sports club's standard stretching methods and YouTube videos not help? Unlike children, most adults find it much more difficult to improve their mobility. Therefore, they must proceed with particularly sophisticated techniques and with caution, because nothing throws back further than an injury. I use a combination of different methods that combine stretching with training: My exercises stretch and strengthen the muscles at the same time and thus have a positive effect on the central nervous system, which in turn controls the stretching. Therefore this course is very exhausting! ● Breathing and relaxation techniques ● Fascia training and nerve mobilization for improved signal transmission -> nervous system ● alternating tension and relaxation of the muscle or its agonist ● Strengthening the muscle in the stretched state and at the same time improving balance (loaded progressive stretching) ● Using lever techniques to create more room for deeper stretching; isolated stretching of individual muscles (kinesiological stretching) With the classic approach, you passively wait in the respective position until you automatically dive deeper into the stretch due to muscle fatigue. The muscle is not sufficiently activated, so the nervous system is not affected to the same extent and progress is significantly slower. If you want to move faster and are not afraid of a little exertion, you should definitely try this method! About me: I'm inherently inflexible and I started stretching when I was over 20 to become a professional artist. Therefore, I know the difficulties from my own experience, have dealt intensively with stretching and keep myself constantly up to date. Private lessons at your home, at work or on Skype! Can also be combined with training plans on request.
