Educating my students from a holistic point of view is my mission. I love to be “up to date” with new exercises and research based on the understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the human body. I say pedagogy for the 21st century because teaching dance for me is much more than just showing and copying steps. It is to understand movement and to be able to apply it in the best way to each of our bodies, which are totally different. Whether you have the so-called “conditions” or not, I am a faithful believer that dance and specifically ballet can be practiced by everyone, without exclusion.
