Zvi 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!

As a ballet teacher, Zvi, 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, its specific needs and the 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.
