« First, I think it's important to state that I will not be teaching a dance class or a technique class at CCNR.
Rather, I will be leading a warm-up class for professional dancers. I've been a certified instructor of the Pilates Method for 10 years now teaching in pilates studios in New York City and Bruxelles, with an emphasis on rehabilitation.
In recent years I have focussed more on teaching dance companies, at dance conservatories, as well as in departments of dance in universities and open community classes.
These classes have developed into a mixture of exercises influenced from pilates, yoga and feldenkrais methods -working on alignment, strengthening and creating space to prepare a dancing body to move with ease and efficiency. » Tarek Halaby
