TEACHER – Noes Fiolet
Noes is an experienced ballet/dance teacher from the Netherlands who had his own dance school in Rotterdam. He has been dancing and teaching his whole life in different countries and has also directed many shows on television.
The aim of each class is to get to know your own body. It will be serious, catering for a range of levels of experience whilst being enjoyable and fun at the same time.
A typical class begins with a warm up with music and progresses with a series of exercises focusing on muscle strengthening, stretching and awareness of your body. Noes will pay close attention to the implementation of all the exercises to ensure that you get maximum benefit from doing them.
Classes usually finish with relaxation and guided meditation which will generally involve breathing methods, guided imagery and other practices to relax the Body and Mind and so help reduce stress.
Over time, the technique of combining Body and Mind exercises is said to improve mental wellbeing. The first class will be free so that you get a taste of what is involved. After that, we hope you will decide to continue and each class will cost 5 euros per person per class.
