Dance can generate a very democratic environment - everyone can come, try and enjoy! What is dance about? Just embodied confidence I guess...we are exposed, barefoot, totally exposed and nowhere to hide. As the most of you know, I previously worked as an art director, helping brands to find their way and communicate with the world. I have realised that most of the principles I followed in the past, remain just as relevant in teaching dance! My focus is finding the right communication between our body and the rest of the world. We commit to be nice, rather than be real. We need to commit to us: you commit to you! We are the one we were waiting for, no else. What does this mean?
I believe in dance therapy, in transforming the body using aerobic movement for a happy and long life; I believe also that the grace of a movement and not just do it, brings our body to explore different shapes; I believe in a beautiful and lean body behind every dress at every age; I believe in art as a life choice. Dance is the best way to maintain a good body and a good spirit. Every age can dance and use the body. I believe that gravity can be managed if we really want to have a healthy body!

The workshop will explore techniques to remove common irritants, while nourishing ourselves with vegan and whole foods from Artemisia recipes repertoire. Together, we will clean emotional and physical blocks to reveal a more focussed and vibrant version of ourselves. Maybe you’ve been pretty consistent about eating fruits and veggies, making it to class at least once a week, and going to sleep at a reasonable hour. But without exception, everyone makes exceptions (say, that late-night crunch to hit a work deadline or a beer-and-pizza party with friends). The holiday period impacts the health habits of even the most disciplined among us. We will learn how to deal with the desire to consume sugar and unhealthy food and how to embrace habits that bring our challenges to another level. In other words how we strip away layers of false beliefs.
Shape your Body? Weight Loss? Empower your mind and your coordination skills? Detox? Here the group classes you should consider. By moving the body and engage the mind, participants feel regenerated of endorphins that become a real cleansing of energy, sealed breath work and movement practice. This experience is a return and reconnection to yourself, your time to feel who you really are. The mind gets clear as soon the body becomes a precise movement machine. My workouts are for any woman who feels disconnected, different, in need of change or for all who need to reset from a stressful life. I challenge you to experience pain and discomfort in order to re-organize every inch of your body.

We must not be afraid of chemicals altogether, but we ought to be aware of the amount we are consuming and the influences they are having on our health. The American Journal Reuters reported in 2015 to have found the presence of the herbicide glyphosate in the majority of the honey samples that they tested, over a third of their samples of soy sauce and three out of eighteen breast milk samples. After Scientists had claimed that pesticides which bio-accumulate (the gradual build up over time of a chemical in a living organism) to any significant degree had been removed from use or were at least highly restricted, these results forced them to retract their statements.
Middle-aged, highly sexed women aren't supposed to dance in common imagenery. In this trend of grey or silver beautiful heads and #maturemodels, I can't resist to say that Isadora Duncan was leading the woman middle age revolution 90 years ago.

It is widely known that fashion finds its inspiration in every nook and cranny of art, from architecture to film and theatre. Even though each functions as its own cultural space, the worlds of ballet and fashion are often interwoven. This fusion takes place not only through the works of famous designers who, more than often, use modern and classical dances as an inspiration for their collections, but as well through numerous others spheres of fashion, and art in general. When it comes to fashion, the motif of ballet can be repeatedly found in different celebrity designers’ collections, from Coco Chanel to Yves Saint Laurent to Giorgio Armani. This breathtaking synthesis has produced the fashion trend that in real has never faded away - transparent tulle, pastel colors and layering, daring but at the same time secure combination.

What you are going to do with your body ageing, your face getting saggy and your hair full down? In my case I can’t stop myself to eat!
