Ballet for Contemporary Dancers Beginners

Respect the body!

Zvi Gotheiner has created an internationally acclaimed teaching method, inspired by the work of Maggie Black, under whom he studied for many years. Combining different traditions of ballet, with emphasis on placement and movement efficiency, this method is respectful of the human body and the specific needs and abilities of each individual. The class consists of slow and thorough barre work, followed by simple exercises in the centre and is a good introduction to the ballet form for modern dancers and definitely lots of fun!


Ballet for Contemporary Dancers Advanced

Placement and movement efficiency

As a ballet teacher, Zvi Gotheiner, whose choreographic work is rooted in contemporary movement, has been inspired by Maggie Black. He has created an internationally acclaimed teaching method with the emphasis on placement and movement efficiency. This method respects the human body and the specific needs and abilities of each individual. Characteristic for Zvi's teaching at the barre is the essential simplicity of the exercises that – in combination with slowness and repetition - allows thorough work. His exercises across the floor are well-known for their musicality and spaciousness. The advanced level classes will conclude with a sequence of jumps, both intricate and fluid.

Meditating on teaching Ballet

This class is designed for experienced dance teachers, teachers that are new to the field as well as aspiring teachers with no experience in teaching dance. Using the matrix of Ballet, Zvi will lead the class to question assumption regarding the teaching of dance, and by practising teaching and by process of giving/getting feedback, he will encourage students to develop a personal and creative approach for their own teaching.
