Improvisation and Private Dance Classes in Your Favorite Genre
You will learn how to show your emotions through movements to best inspire the audience and enjoy. We will work on rhythm, tempo (which are two different things), creativity, improvisation techniques and theatrical performance (if interested). I do not like to work genre-based (for instance only hip-hop, or only classical music), but we will practice what you like the most. However, my strengths are rather in contemporary and modern style, hip hop, breakdance, belly dancing, and Persian dance. We can also specialize in one of these if you are interested. Contact me for availability.

Tango Argentino, conexión y comunicación con uno y el otro.
📌No siempre se necesitan dos para que funcione la cosa… Para empezar a conectar, asimilar y experimentar con un nuevo SABER, lo más IMPORTANTE ¡es el cuerpo, la actitud, constancia y una gran pizca de confianza! Me gusta siempre abordar los códigos de diferentes disciplinas de la danza, a partir de estructuras que trabaje el aspecto físico, rítmico, creativo. Se tiene la idea de que el Tango es difícil de aprender, y claro que si nos acercamos a él con esa etiqueta, así lo será. Partiendo del principal del concepto del tango, la CAMINATA, algo que tod@s hacemos la mayor parte del tiempo, bailar tTANGO está al alcance de todos.🤗 Otro punto muy importante es la manera de asimilarlo y entenderlo 😉😅 ❤️‍🔥¿Cómo serán las clases te preguntarás? Te comento un poquito, la estructura la vamos a desarrollar en el trabajo de cambios de pesos, la pisada, proyección de la caminata, el pivot, comprender la kinesfera individual y en pareja traducido al abrazo, los giros y el torso en espiral para entender el impulso en varios ejercicios, los ochos tan famosos en el tango, El paso básico y salida universal, caminatas con el concepto de carriles y mucho más a partir de diversas secuencias que vayan familiarizándote a las necesidades técnicas para poder realizar los pasos y sin dejar de lado las dinámicas, el pulso, acento y compas del tango. Todo se irá concientizando en segundo plano de manera más orgánica. No se trata de solo aprender pasos sueltos, y luego…¿qué hacemos 🧐? No es la forma la que debe tomar papel protagónico, sino la manera en que expresas esa forma. También dejaremos que tu lado creativo y lúdico forme parte del proceso, a través de una herramienta que considero muy valiosa que es la improvisación 👌 ya que permite encontrar tu propio estilo y reconocer tus fortalezas y debilidades para seguir creciendo en tu pasión por el baile. Ya con todas estas herramientas, entrar al mundo de secuencias más complejas y por qué no, crear las tuyas, será un paso más y no un desafío imposible de alcanzar.🤩 No te olvides, que los pasos que hoy se conoce y gran parte de las secuencias, surgieron de una mente inquieta y creativa, que exploró sinónimo de IMPROVISAR❗️ Transitemos por proceso junt@s y sostengamos en un abrazo.

Dance & Therapy session | Transcendental Embodiment
Are you seeking for a creative and uplifting way to consciously reconnect with yourself ? Transcendental Embodiment is a dance practice that will guide you to embrace your emotions and help you to reach your true authentic self. Through meditative dances, guided imageries, and energy healing modalities. I am here to support and guide you in your process of discovering your inner power through: - chakras alignment, guided meditation, breathing exercises - self-expression & subjective experience through dance - expanding your heart space, emotional awareness, and healing in movement and dance - release of stress, judgment, and trapped emotions - grounding, self-care, resilience - and more... The sessions are tailored to the specific needs and capabilities of each individual. *Dance can be a practice of introspection, transformation, and transcendence of one’s subjective experiences into a worldwide journey. * As a professional dancer, teacher, and performance maker I am introspectively processing each working day in consciousness, listening to my upcoming emotions, triggers, or anxiety when it comes to be physically and mentally performative in a team, or as a freelance artist. Instead of suppressing these emotions and creating energetical and mental blockages (that can end up into somatic pains or burn-out): we should pay more attention to these inner warning messages and strengthen our emotional intelligence to be able to cope with the infinitesimal external stimulus and daily-stress of our very fast lives. It can be challenging to sense with clarity what is the origin of some feelings of frustration, unsatisfaction, discomfort, or grief, and it can be intimidating or discouraging to walk alone on that path. This class helps you to commit to your better-being, presence to oneself countering wellness procrastination. * What do you need to feel lighter, brighter, or happier in your everyday life? * * What is your self-achievement potentiality? * - For who? : For anyone who enjoys movement and dance, and desires a better connection and understanding with their moving bodies. / ​One-to-one or group sessions. - ​Where? : Online via SKYPE or at the student's location. Values: Integrity, Transparency, Respect, Cooperation * About TE : Transcendental Embodiment (TE) is the result of three years of research and development. Merging from a movement philosophy research entitled Behind & Beyond, to its phenomenological understanding. The metaphysical unity of the tangible and intangible bodies expounds on the undeniable relationships between those in the physical realm. The tangible body (the material vehicle), the intangibles bodies (psychological, emotional, energetical, and spiritual). As a dance healing practice, guiding the practitioner to conscious corporeality, and subjective emotional understanding, this methodology can also be a useful tool to improve artistry and technical skills on a deeper level, widening mindful creativity, awareness, empathy, and sensitivity. (TE) movement and dance methodology combines a meditative approach in stillness and through movement, awakening the mind, spreading the awareness into different body parts; putting a specific emphasis on improvisation skills, and musicality, following energy impulses and intuitive movement and increasing the flow of energy. Inviting the practitioners to practice resilience, non-self definition, non-judgment, self-care and self-love, integrity, and acceptance to overcome technical, physical, and mental limits holding the practitioner from his self-achievement potentiality. This approach builds itself crescendo on subjective movement reflexivity and introspective journey through the following process: ​ * The four steps: Being | Investigation | Exploration | Dedication Unconscious - Subconscious - Conscious - Transcendental Consciousness Feel free to contact me for any inquiries.

Private and group ballet classes with the Vaganova graduate
My class is based on the famous Vaganova method. Therefore during our work we will focus on the correct technique of movement and its style, so you will learn not only how to do elements correctly but also will understand how to make your dance look beautiful and catching for audience. Also I stand for a positive approach in the educational process, because I am deeply convinced that this kind of attitude is one of the main keys to improvement. You can study with me: Classical ballet Point work Ballet Repertoire Stretching Ballet gymnastics

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.

Eleonora
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.

I am a ballet teacher for children and for adults.

When you do ballet there is not a single muscle in the body that is not involved. Let"s start this journey together!

Vaganova ballet (method of the Bolshoi and Marinskii theatres) group classes of 3 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.
