Anna Fooks

Get strong, get mobile and get confident upside down. After a lot of requests Anna is finally going to teach a handstand class for BDN!

15 Oct

Claire Lambert 

Claire will lead a class that is both detailed in content and playful in nature. Exercises will focus on finding strength in the core and articulation in the body with performance style and personal interpretation highly encouraged. With a mix of led sequences and improvisation, the intention is to get the whole body moving, the mind challenged and the spirit lifted! The class aims to develop expression, build stamina, explore rhythm and ultimately have a good old shimmy!"

22 Oct

Martina Bussi

YOGA FOR DANCERS / The yoga class is specifically designed for dancers. The class has its foundations in Vinyasa Flow Yoga with a specific ladder flow structure. Working with accumulative movement and repetition this class focuses on building stamina through continuous movement and flow. Special attention is given to alignment, balance, core stability and full body power. Upper body strength is also promoted by introducing arm balances and hand balancing skills.

29 Oct

Avatâra Ayuso

Avatâra offers a dynamic contemporary ballet class for today’s dancer with emphasis on alignment, musicality, movement qualities and the epaulement (the ability to move in spiral motion), set to a score of world music (from pop and jazz to bossa nova). It is a highly physical class for freelance dance artists, that enjoy approaching ballet with a 21st century mind.
