Program of the workshops is in general outline – every time we adapt workshop classes to the needs, age, skills and expectations of the group – we are flexible.

We encourage you to contact us!

We offer you the classes enforcing the energy which sleeps in each of us and which is muted day by day, from various reasons. These classes improve the silhouette and , first of all, help in finding the balance between BODY AND SOUL.

They are the classes, thanks to which movements are smooth and cumulated energy will always be ready to serve us and to act in the direction set by us. All the exercises which we offer you are the result of our stage work and training and also careful observation of human behaviour. They include the elements of many techniques like: dance, pantomime, eurythmics and also relaxation and stretching techniques , they use yoga, tai-chi and actor studies.

Eurhythmics and correlating exercise intensify the feeling of confidence in us and theatrical studies accustom us to stressful situations which happen to us every day, both at work and in life. The classes also let play with the text, with various interpretations of the same piece, “packing” the text with emotions, different emphasizing of the words. They teach to control the emotions, good presentation in public.
