Teaching

"Sharing my skills in bboying with beginners in the open breakdance class is something i enjoy doing. With time my teaching had developed naturally.

In my contemporary dance studies I completed a degree in pedagogy. The education evoked new angles to analyse and reflect my teaching. One of the most important points for me as a teacher is to stay like a student, ready and open for new information and approaches to keep on progressing.

My classes are mainly based on breaking and contemporary floor techniques. In addition, popping, electro boogaloo and different kinds of contemporary approaches stand also as the inspiration behind my movement concepts.”

MASTER CLASSES

"I am observing that urban movement techniques in combination with contemporary dance concepts are complementary to each other for potential creation.

 

In my master classes I am mixing urban and contemporary dance ideas and techniques. I provide the students with diversity of movement techniques out of contemporary and urban dance styles to open up their physical abilities. Furthermore I use different kinds of methods to lead them into improvisation with their own physical abilities thereby to develop their own movement techniques of expression.

 

The main elements in this classes are the floor, movement dynamics and the connection between our eyes and movements.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BREAKING CLASSES

"I have been teaching breaking classes since 2008. During that time I learned to approach this element from different angles as every person has a different constitution and learning method. My challenge is to understand how people comprehend and support them in their own way.

I am teaching beginners as well as advanced classes.

For beginners my focus is on a solid technical base in breaking and an introduction into funk styles (locking, popping, electric boogaloo).

In the advanced classes, the students take more initiative. They will create dance materials by themselves and present it in showings and cyphers.

This self-contained but still guided way of training offers the freedom to develop beyond the basics. Like this they can discover their independent motivation and own way of dancing.”
