About these classes:   

Joyful classes combining movement exploration, development & dance making based on Laban, Haselbach & Kiphard with modern/contemporary & ballet technique. Emphasis lies on encouraging creative choice, self-expression & teamwork in a respectful, cooperative atmosphere. Developing imagination, sensibility, awareness & social interaction, self-expression, musicality, coordination, strength, balance, flexibility &, most of all, self-confidence.  



The classes run in terms of 5-7 weeks. The first class is always a free class. You can then sign up for a term but commit to paying fees for each class even if you miss a class.  You may pay in cash or by bank transfer at the start of the term or weekly.       

About myself: 

I am originally from Berlin and started dancing ballet. modern and expressive dance from a very young age. I trained and performed mainly with the child and youth dance company Tanzwerkstatt No Limit, from 1988-2000.  I continued training in contemporary dance with the jilling company, Tantheaterproject Rostock, (now Tanzland Rostock) from 2001-2005 performing in many of their dance theatre pieces. Having lived in the US from 1992-94 and graduated from the German-American partnership School, JFKS Berlin in 2000,  I studied for MA in English and German Studies (2000-2006). I came to Cork first as an Erasmus student (2002/03) and again to study for MA Drama and Theatre Studies w. focus on expressive dance at UCC (2005-06).  For the last 10 years, I’ve trained & performed in a number of projects, mainly in contemporary dance with Inma Pavon.  I have a certificate in Creative Dance Leadership for children (AHAB Academy, Berlin), a Fetac 5 in Exercise and Fitness (CSN), a basic practitioner & teacher level in KDS. Floor Barre (Hamburg Dance Institute). Currently, I am training as Community Dance Leader (The Laban Guild), kindly supported by Cork City Council. In 2015 I founded Dance Theatre Project Cork to facilitate dance, drama and language courses.
