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.

Private & Group Dance Classes at home: Contemporary, Ballet, Modern Jazz
Hello dear movers! Do you enjoy dancing and you are willing to improve your technical skills and artistry? I am here for you. As a professional dancer, teacher, and performance maker I am creative, dynamic, full of awareness, and versatile. I teach contemporary dance, floor work, contact improvisation, acrobatics, ballet, modern jazz, and fitness. My classes are focused on musicality, anatomy, energy flow, improvisation, and personal artistry. The classes are tailored, designed, and adjusted regarding the specific needs, capabilities, uniqueness, and artistic voice of each individual. During the past years, I have developed a methodology entitled The Transcendental Embodiment (TTE) | Behind & Beyond. This method links philosophical, psychological, spiritual, and scientific approaches to the movement. (You can check the available Dance & Healing (TTE) class on my page for further information.) I have had professional experiences in several countries in Europe (France, Iceland, Sweden, Germany, Greece), and in Asia (Malaysia, Bali). - 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. Bachelor of Contemporary Dance Practices | Iceland University of the Arts.

Ioannis
Greek traditional dances in individual and group lessons
Hi! My name is Ioannis. I am a professional dancer of Greek traditional dances. My passion for Greek dances started 23 years ago when I was only 5 years old! I have been an active member of the International Dance Council (CID, UNESCO), the official organization for all forms of dance in all countries of the world. I successfully participated in numerous national and international festivals worldwide, with many awards, while I am a certified teacher by Greek Dances Theatre “Dora Stratou”. During my courses, you can learn several dances from all the Greek regions. Together we can learn how to dance in an authentic way, getting to know in depth the Greek heritage. The lessons include the provision of cultural and folklore knowledge for each specific region as well as dance explanation style based on the socio-economical and geological characteristics. The dances options may include: Zempekiko, Ikariotikos, Syrtaki, Pentozali, Xasapiko, Zonaradiko, Tik, Serra, Tsamiko, Syrtos and Ballos. The lessons are tailor-made based on every student’s focusing on every student’s skills and knowledge, always focusing on personal wishes. Together we can build a plan so you can focus on the style of dance you wish! Lessons can be individual but also in groups after discussion (e.g. family, couples, friends).

Emilie
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.

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.
