Class description Contemporary: My contemporary classes are a continuation of my practices as a performer. and choreographer, and even though I feel the influence of many artists I meet and allow myself to shift between different styles, there are things that are constant : an active body scan, isolation – research, flow, improvisation. You can also expect some physicality, snips of phrases alone and in connections with each other.
