"Although at first studied the Vaganova method, later I also studied in a number of different ballet techniques, primarily Cuban and American, modern dance, and Graham, Cunningham and release- and somatic techniques. My work has been most influenced by Feldenkrais and release dance techniques. In my lessons, we focus on aligning movements and the proper use of strength and breathing to increase my students’ knowledge of their own bodies, reduce tension, and maximize the benefits of different exercises. I enjoy working and understanding movement from different perspectives, respecting aesthetics and the rules of technology as in ballet, but always working from the inside movement, aware of body and expression.
