The Art of Fluidity

While our everyday lives put some strain on our bodies, the first part of this collection helps you relax before taking your dance steps. The better you understand your body, the easier it is to connect with yourself or a partner. While discovering the movement that is comfortable to you, you will also discover that it is the most natural one.
The second part of this collection is about connection and partnering. Find out how to move and how to stop with your partner, while your feet are at work too. What if the independence of movement of the two of you create a more organic and fluid way of dancing?
