About "Salon de Danse"
In 2013, I created the Salon de Danse- method specifically for non-professional dancers. It started with a group of women who loved to dance and move and wanted to experience dance classes without too much pressure of learning choreography.
The method I have developed expands individuals’ movement and allows everyone to use their intuition and movement in an individual way. For each class I create an environment and tone which provides participants a possibility to experience different kinds of sensations and the purifying flow of dance.
In my class you can move without thinking too much, instead, letting yourself free to enjoy the energy and the movement. There is no judgment of doing right or wrong; individual differences are celebrated.
All you need is an open mind and a wish to dance. You´ll learn to be aware of your body and your intuition and have the freedom to experience your movement. This way of moving allows you to feel more centered and energized. Light in both the body and mind.
