The training is based on the different influences I experienced during my dance career. Especially the years in France and in New York with David Howard had a great influence on my didactic and methodological approach. I do not believe in just one way or method. It is my declared goal to promote artistic individuality and stage presence already in daily ballet training. The training is organic and leads from slow and simple elements to more complex dynamic movements. The emphasis of the lessons is on musicality and dynamics, while respecting the latest knowledge from the field of dance medicine.
OPEN SPACE for students
Students can meet up and organize among themselves how they want to use this training slot.

Movement explorations that I have learned from students – In this morning class I share movement practices and approaches that I have learned from students. Questions about care or performing gender or the collaborative/ collective are contemporary themes that are taken up by the next generation of dance artists and integrated into their movement practices. With examples developed by former HZT students including Ehud Darash, Miriam Kongstad, Kat Valastur, Julian Weber.
