Daniela wants to convey in her class, a deep awareness and understanding of the body in motion, which leads to more freedom and lightness in dancing. Her classes are an interplay between release, recovery, and conscious directing of the body in space. Daniela seeks the balance between stability and letting go with a clear focus on musicality. Her many years of experience with the Alexander Technique have had a deep impact in her dancing and teaching, seeking full awareness and efficiency of movement. The lesson begins with simple exercises on the floor and continues to develop into standing combinations. These become more complex and move through space leading to a longer combination to finish the class.
