the fun confusion of zooming-out

and the nerdy clarity of zooming-in styles


For the past 25 years I have been present in the field of professional contemporary dance. I enjoyed studying, embracing the intricacies of creative processes. I spent countless hours, with people I like, globetrotting, presenting the work on stage and in dance studios. All these experiences contributed towards the crystallization of 'Martin’s Dancing', my dance style. What I'm offering to you is an experience of my craft, a study moment in the library of my knowledge. I will teach you the scores and methods that will equip you with concrete and graspable tools. I designed these tools in order to cultivate awareness, a sensitivity that can help you to access your feelings. The study process will radically enlarge your movement vocabulary and teach you how to use the body language more eloquently.

What I'm presenting to you is very personal, yet I carry the belief that my work houses a generous portion of objective value to all. To study with me you don't need to be a movement specialist, professional performer nor a young person. I appreciate a lot open minded curios students ready to spend time to investigate, using your today’s potential occasionally swinging to the tunes of music. I wish to help and make you feel better.
