Ballet class for everyone, all levels, 7 years old to 99.

Dance is my passion and I believe in the power of movement. Ballet might be perceived as difficult and strict, but my teaching approach is making Ballet an expressive, fun, and accessible art form. My teaching is based on french technic, but as someone who traveled a lot due to my professional career, my teaching approach can be eclectic.
Therefore, I will structure my class especially for you, depending on your needs and your goals. No matter if you are looking for better posture, furthering your technic, preparing for an audition, or simply fulfilling a dream, I am here to share my passion, and help you become the best dancer you can be.
Get an extra advantage and choose to get your class in French (as a French native) if you'd like to further your level of the language.

Extra information

Have a space to hold on to for the barre exercises, and enough space to move for the center. I have taught a lot of classes online during the confinements, so I know how to adjust my exercises for small spaces.

About Me

I was born and raised in France but I traveled around the world to live for my passion. I've been dancing since age 4 and I was a professional Ballet dancer in Europe and in Canada for 16 years. I then became a coach for professional dancers and an artistic assistant for companies. However, it is important for me to connect this art form to everyone, so everywhere I was going, I opened my own classes for beginners and intermediates for all ages.
I recently relocated to London, and I am now a Full-Time student at Roehampton University to follow a Dance and Movement Psychotherapy Master Program. Always in the search of deepening my understanding of dance, I would like in the future to use this art form as a healing tool.
This relocation gives me an opportunity to teach near you. So, don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to talk about your needs and goals and we will plan a personalized course for you.

Dance - Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, Dance conditioning
“Studying cultural education subjects, such as art and design, dance, drama and music, sparks creativity across the curriculum, encouraging young people to be inquisitive, disciplined and determined. Wherever children start in life, a high quality cultural education should be a right, not a privilege. All of our children deserve a rich cultural education, but not all of them are getting it.” Darren Henley OBE Chief Executive, Arts Council England I can offer Technique, Performance and Examination classes in each genre of dance. Whether for exercise and fun or professional training, my classes will provide a complete knowledge base of dance training.

Ann
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.

Dance & Healing | The Transcendental Embodiment - Behind & Beyond
Are you seeking life guidance through art, movement, and dance for emotional, psychological, and physical well-being? Welcome to the Transcendental Embodiment. I am here to support and guide you in your own process of discovering your inner healing 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." - Tiffany Mc Swaker * 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 TTE : The Transcendental Embodiment (TTE) 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 intangibles bodies expounds 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. (TTE) movement and dance methodology combines a meditative approach in stillness and through movement, awakening the mind, spreading the awareness into different body parts; put a specific emphasis on improvisation skills, and musicality, following energy impulses and intuitive movement, 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.

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.

Priyanka
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.

Roller Skate Dance with roller quads (roller skate)
The practice of Roller Dance is a completely independent street art with very few rules. If you are a lover of "quads" (roller skates) that you dream of sliding on the asphalt with your hair blowing in the wind and that you like old school culture, you've come to the right place;) I suggest for beginners (first time or not yet comfortable) to gain confidence on roller skates thanks to balance exercises as well as basic steps and tips to safely learn the basics of Roller Dance. For the intermediate level (you hold on well on your skates) I suggest learning the most emblematic steps of this discipline, which have made the reputation of Roller Dance all over the world, you will be able to do sequences yourself and why not improvise in the evening. For the advanced level (you already know how to dance on roller skates) I suggest that you make your movements more fluid by correcting the posture and by incorporating the arms, to take steps at a higher level, but also to help you create your own "routine" (small loop representing your signature)
