“During my classes I like to use everything that I have learned throughout my career as an artist and share those learnings with other artists. the technique as pilar of our knowledge without forgetting to dance”chnique class:
My technical classes are based on the Limon and Release techniques. I like to mix my classes using both techniques – the Release style allows more freedom of movement while Limon brings more discipline around shape and form. In my opinion, Release is more natural and free and helps me to see the potential of dancers in terms of their movement and dance. Limon gives dancers a more powerful body structure.
I use the Limon technique combined with a physical floor work introdurction to warm up the body and get ready for the main exercises. The exercises include grand plies exercises and bounces; finding balance, momentos and releasing the body during the exercises; triplex, small and big jumps to end in variation of mine. It is a truly technical class full of technique.Improvisation & Contact Classes:
My improvisation classes helps students to discover the space around them and recreate an imaginary world. The students will be guided to play and use different qualities and parts of the body they maybe are not used to working with. My aim is to get the students to reach into their creativity and develop their own vocabulary as a dancer.
With contact, students will learn how to use body language, exploring and listening to the body of their partner. We will build kinesthetic skills and new perceptual awareness through moving in contact with others. This class is great for people wanting physical exploration, embodied philosophy, fitness, play, meditation, and creativity. We will learn to access different body mind states internally and externally in space around us. Tuning our bodies to the forces of gravity and momentum - we let go of excess tension to find ease and vitality.
We will play with various improvisation structures, including elements of the Underscore, to build attunement. Our explorations will bring subtlety, fullness, and flight to our dancing. Classes consist of warm- up, exercises, movement puzzles, and jamming!

Perfect! Daniel is one of the greatest tutors I've ever worked with. I've been preparing many shows in the past but Daniel is the first person who completely understood what I wanted to and show not only to audience but what I wanted to show to myself, what kind of emotions I wanted to express.
He will direct you to the path which you were looking for.
Highly reccomend if you are looking for someone who will be able to help you to express yourself
Lovely to work with him!!!
Perfect! Dan is such a encouraging and talented teacher. I always look forward to his lessons because he is really fun and teaches lovely exercises. I started lessons with Dan in March originally requesting ballet, and we have had weekly lessons ever since unless our schedules have not allowed us. Recently we have tried some contemporary and he is great at teaching both. I’ve enjoyed mixing up the styles. He checks in with you throughout the lesson to make sure you understand and he is very helpful when answering any questions. He has a warm and fun personality and I would recommend Dan to anybody wanting to take ballet lessons, beginner or advanced, as he has the knowledge and skills to adapt for any level.
so exited to have you in my online classes
