I have had the privilege to learn my craft as a dancer and actor with master teachers, choreographers and performers. When I discovered the world of educational kinesthetics and somatic work, my performing and creativity, as well as my technical skills and rehearsal practice reached new levels.
When we combine the forming of clear intentions, deep awareness, and integration of our body, mind and emotional systems – powerful synergy is created. One dancer said, “I didn’t know it could be easy.” When all the parts of our being are integrated, working together, ‘pulling the cart in the same direction’ – it is easy.
Participating in this class was a thrilling, wonderful, positive and good experience for me. You taught me to know my body and mind better… and that we should be friends with the ground and space and trust them.
I’m sure I shall use your precious teachings for my students. Moreover the positive points you taught me about the movement patterns changed my approach and vision about dance. As if I was bound in a dry framework – you broke this prison of framework. I also learned many things from your discipline, endurance and your focus while teaching. Hopefully, I will use these points both in my personal life and in my career. I am grateful for all of that.
