Marie teaches a joyful yet challenging class that is tailored to the individual needs of the participating dancers. Using the principles of Limon technique her class utilises the use of weight and breath to encourage movement that works with the body rather than against it.
Our Level 3 class is a dynamic class focusing on higher level technical abilities and an increase in physical fitness. Complex movement combinations and content will cover more advanced principles such as agility and the use of weight; whilst at the same time increasing musical awareness through a range of tempos and rhythms. You will increase your versatility in moving and introduce your own uniqueness to the movement with confidence.
