Class description ballet: In my classes I would like to transfer the focus to the functionality of the principles we use in ballet, and see how everything from turnout to the positions of the arms is actually more of a process and can feel organic and comfortable. Meanwhile, I will keep the challenge. with dynamics, musicality and coordination, so we can have some fun and remember to dance!
