Ballet for Contemporary Dancers

The ballet class re-evaluates and builds on classical technique, focusing on strengthening the dancer’s awareness of his or her own natural alignment. The training aims to allow the dancer to move with a greater sense of freedom and expression and thus gain a stronger sense of confidence to take space and go beyond technique.

Gyro Ballet

In Gyro Ballet, ballet and Gyrokinesis® are merged. Thereby, the body is explored from a different and new perspective and the changes in the dancer’s body are observed from day to day. The aim is to let the dancer experience ballet in a new way.

Introduction to Ballet

This  workshop is for ballet beginners or for dancers, who are interested in (re)visiting the basic principles of what ballet has to offer. The idea is to use ballet as a tool to enhance the awareness of the own natural movement potentials and widening the perspectives about the body, while at the same time tasting the joy of ballet.
