David Russo

March 25. – 29. 2019

David N. Russo teaches ballet and contemporary dance at the Ballet Academy of the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München. He has been a member of the collective ‘satellit produktion’ since 2013. After completing his training at the John Cranko School in Stuttgart, he danced as a soloist at the Saarländische Staatstheater and at the Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz under the direction of Philip Taylor. Russo choreographs his own pieces, organises events in Munich’s freelance scene and collaborates with artists such as Jasmine Morand from Cie Prototype Status and Nina Radelfahr. 


Class description

This lesson unites different disciplines and dance styles to address body perception, coordination and aesthetics. Drawing from his eclectic background, David’s class aims to mindfully prepare the body for the rigours of being a professional dancer today. The class starts with gently warming up and softening the muscles and joints and develops from plain and pure body-work/ work-out exercises, through short floor and standing combinations into more complex choreographic sequences, all of which prepare the body to move through space with an emphasis on coordination, healthy alignment and awareness. Some task based movement will challenge the senses before the class culminates with some seriously dynamic choreography designed to bring it all together, and have a bit of fun while we’re at it!!
