Life has a way of reinventing purpose and reigniting old fireplaces. Teaching around the world has been amazing but my ON LINE PRIVATE COURSES have been equally exciting, an whole new discovery that makes me fall in love with dance and teaching every single day.
Each person brings gifts and challenges of her own and it´s my job to see them and work according to them & around them. It´s not worthy to push doors that just don´t want to be opened and there are many roads that lead to the same destination.
More demanding than I thought, this business of creating a personal program for each dancer who´s studying with me on line – specific material, exercises, choreographies and pedagogy for each one of them. Not for lazy bones, that´s for sure. Only one thing remains the same, independently of the person I´m teaching and her/his peculiar traits: we work the WHOLE package: the dancer and the person inside that dancer. As Aristotle wisely proclaimed: educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all. I couldn´t agree more.
Thankful for every dancer who inspires me and pushes me out of my comfort zone, just as I try to do with each one of my students. Thanks for the trust you put on my heands. Thanks for teaching me about dance and, ever more important, about what it means to be human.
