Miniature Persian Dancing; a combination of smooth, beautiful, and calm movements for everyone interested in the historical persian culture.
The word "miniature" means small and delicate nature. And it is called a style of Iranian painting ; A style that is in fact the same smallness and elegance as stated in It has its own. Miniature movements take their form in three parts of the miniature paintings: A. From the body figures in these paintings, B. From the twist of lines and colours in these paintings C. From the elegance in these paintings ... General techniques and main features of miniature dance can be divided into several general categories: • Wave When performing the Iranian miniature form, the hands have many wavy movements. • Curves In this style, many curves can be created with the whole body, especially the hands. • Rotation Rotation and rotation movements are widely used in miniature dance. Rotations that show the circularity of this form (but not as much as hearing!) • figure In the form of Iranian miniatures, creating different figures by hand has a special effect and creates a vivid miniature painting. • Softness and elegance This form is performed in perfect softness and delicacy and rough or dry movements have no place in it. • Being current When performing a miniature, the body floats in space, as if moving like water. Carefully considering the above, we realise that all these features are exactly reflected in Iranian architecture and painting and miniature painting. Spiritual characteristics of the miniature form In miniature form, these spiritual characteristics are felt: calmness, liberation, tenderness, originality, sobriety.

Ballet, Contemporary Dance, Dance Theory and Composition
Ballet and Contemporary Dance are both classical and ever-changing, and reflective of today's momentum. As I have studied a wide range of dance styles and techniques, I hold vast experience in how one wants to devise their movement practice and understand the creative developments within dance history and theory. This class can be movement-based or discussion-based, and will be driven by the uses of breath and imagination to explore the limits of curiosity and physicality.

Hula Hoop group course for beginners and advanced
Small group course for beginners with previous experience and advanced! A maximum of 4 students take part. This hula hoop course only takes place on Mondays from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. - if you don't have time, please contact us anyway and if there are enough inquiries, a second course can be arranged on a different date. Attention: only until sport can take place again! I therefore cannot recommend the 10-hour package - unfortunately, the decisions on measures cannot be foreseen that far. Hula Hoop is not only a children's toy, it is especially suitable for adults! It's a gentle creative workout. The focus is on creativity, tricks and dancing in such a way that the side effects - increasing flexibility and body definition - are only noticed afterwards. You don't even know what you can do with hula hoops? Incredibly much! From rolls, wedgies, wraps, escalators to isolations, throws, foot-hooping, acrobatics to doubles, multihooping and native american hoopdance, I can teach you everything possible and impossible ;-)

ORIENTAL DANCE PRIVATE CLASSES - Geneva and the Holy Land
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.

Bollywood and Bharatanatyam dance class in London (group and private)
Bharatnatyam is structured according to the examinations conducted by the University. It typically takes about 6-7 years to complete the examinations. You can learn it for fun as well without actually wanting to go through exams. It has immense health benefits and good cardio workout. Bollywood, on the other hand, is energetic and fun-filled and can be learnt one song at a time. I usually assess the ability of the student to grasp the movements and teach accordingly. It can take anywhere between 2 weeks to 4 months to learn a complete Bollywood dance item.
