About the class:

Seeking to blend a mix of classical and contemporary techniques, and greatly influenced by his discoveries through his career, Alexandre Carlos creates a gestural vocabulary combining intrique and usefulness.
Based on the structure of a classical ballet class, he transforms the exercises to find strength, amplitude and dexterity in the work of the legs, as well as flexibility, maintenance and suppleness in the torso as well.
Through a range of exercises, the goal of his class is to form a dancer as versatile as possible, both in their artistry and their technique; make the body strong and maleable - in control and loss of control; make the dancer both stable and released.
It is in this constant research that the interpreter will be able to better prepare physically for any requested style, be it technical or physical.

Open to dance professionals
