Invited around the world to teach and perform, Anasma appears in Festivals/ Conventions/ Conferences, Week-long intensives, Week-end Intensives with workshops and master classes. She teaches regular Master Classes in Paris and private classes while she is travelling.
Generous in her teaching, Anasma loves giving and exchanging. She keeps the energy high in her fun and informative workshops, creating a supportive learning environment.
Anasma’s classes and workshops start with a warm up that includes muscle strengthening, body awareness, breathing, deep stretching, balancing through the usage of yoga asanas, exercising and dancing. This portion of the class introduces the dance style that will be the focus of the workshop.
Then, technique relative to the topic is taught through the introduction of new concepts and drilling. We work the body out and learn innovative ways to express ourselves through movement.
Combinations are created throughout the class or at the end of the class, in order to put together a short choreography. Workshops and classes are a space for creativity. While choreography is an important tool for teaching and learning, Anasma also encourages improvisation, to keep the dancing lively.
The class ends with a cool down.
The length of a class is variable and the structure is adaptable to different time frames.
Anasma wants dancers in her classes to be safe. (Read more about safety here).
