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.

Le dialogue du mouvement » danse, sport, mouvement et esprit.
L’écoute du corps, l’apprentissage d’un rythme harmonieux de contraction et détente et l’expression à travers le mouvement dansé, visent à lui permette l’acquisition d’une connaissance du corps et une sensation de contrôle de soi. Les habitudes gestuelles sont un langage corporel qui raconte la manière dont l’individu s’est adapté à la vie dans son environnement et la façon dont il gère ses forces intérieures. Un des avantages principaux que présente le travail à travers le corps est la possibilité d’inscrire de nouvelles habitudes dans la mémoire à la fois corporelle et émotionnelle. La capacité de libérer les contractions musculaires, de s’abstenir d’un effort superflu tout en conservant les forces du corps, adoucit l’effort autant physique que psychique qu’exigent les différentes situations de vie.

Private lessons / intensive training in Latin Dances (Cuban Salsa, Salsa Porto / LA, Bachata, Merengue, Chacha, West Indian Zouk, Kuduru-African dance, Brazilian Zouk*) (* = it's THE dance of the moment that paradoxically has nothing zouk or anything Brazilian - today it's pop music for two, mixing creativity, sensuality, air fluidity that plays a lot with the movements of bust, head and body undulations.) METHODOLOGY Learn dance and let talk about your body / emotions, make the difference in the evening ("social dancing") or prepare an event (wedding for example): Focused on pedagogy, technique and pleasure, the dance space offers personalized and individualized courses of Salsa (porto on 1, Cuban), Bachata, Merengue, Kuduru-African dance, Zouk Antillais, Zouk Brazilian (pop music) (...) according to your desires. Objective: to adapt to your request and your desire. In the eyes of many neophytes, a couple who dance well performs spectacular figures. To dance is to tell / live together a story, to produce beauty in movement and to make the steps, the attitudes and the connections between the various actions aesthetic / harmonious. This fluidity is born of emotion, felt and transmitted. Simplicity, communication, listening, sharing, emotion, valorization of the other: it is, in addition to technical knowledge (body expression, rhythmic, visual), what you will improve during this training at evolutive levels. In a friendly atmosphere, you will be taken in hand whatever your initial level. Objective: a combination between on the one hand, intuition / feeling / improvisation and on the other hand, technique. It is possible to take the course in couple or solo. 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. In summary, these courses are at the beginner level (basic steps with some general variations), intermediate (faster speed and more concentration on technique, body mechanics, control, footwork, posture, balance and more complex movements) or advanced (for slightly more experienced dancers). Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 or 3 sessions *. (* study 2020) To respond to requests received, it is indeed possible to offer this course (birthday, party, christmas, event ...) to the person of your choice.

Teaching of classical, contemporary and modern jazz dance
Formerly a student at the National Conservatory of Music and Dance in Paris as well as at the Junior Ballet in Geneva, I have been a classical, contemporary and modern jazz dance teacher since 2019 in Switzerland and neighboring France. I taught at the "Danse Evasion" school (Cugy, VD) for amateurs (from the age of 4 to adults) the following techniques: classical, contemporary, jazz, parent-child dance, yoga and Pilates. Subsequently I taught dance for pre-pro training at the "Ecole de danse de la Côte" (Morges, VD) the following techniques: classical and contemporary. In April 2022 I obtained the Technical Aptitude Examination in classical dance and since September 2022 I have been a student in a pedagogical Bachelor's degree with the aim of obtaining the state diploma of classical dance teacher. Following my journey and my desire to continue and perfect my transmission, I offer my services in order to transmit the art and passion of dance for you. My pedagogy is suitable for everyone, fun for the youngest and beginners, reinforced and sharp for the most advanced.

CREATIVE ENERGETIC AND MINDFUL DANCE FOR SELF DISCOVERY-
I am a professional dancer and teacher. My work ethics are very aligned with buddhism and want to help people to feel good in their own bodies, releasing trauma, blockages and tensions. This is an opportunity to also have a good time and be in touch with your emotions through movement. I use the body to understand ourselves and our deepest thought process by truly connecting with the present moment. I use meditation and other techniques to help us drop the voices in our heads and create a free channel of connection with higher self. My intention is to help the body be the vessel it is and gain trust and confidence in who we are.

Carla
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.
