In my classes, I like to facilitate a welcoming, energetic and encouraging environment for the participants.

The class begins with a playful warm-up to tune in with ourselves in space and connect with each other, preparing safely for dance practice. We will focus on floorwork technique through various exercises and dance phrases. There will be some exercises informed by Flying Low, a technique which was developed by David Zambrano. This technique focuses mainly on the dancer's relationship with the ground, utilizing simple movement patterns, which explore cohesion and expansion and trains the body to move in and out of the floor efficiently with speed. Towards the end of the class, we are going to learn a longer dance sequence in which we will add more material each time.

Through this class, we train our body to become physically strong, alerted and agile. We become friends with the floor, learn to use our weight efficiently, play with different dynamics and work towards expanding our movement vocabulary. Nourishing our bodily awareness we move with a greater sense of our own bodies, the others, and space, but also with a greater pleasure for movement.

Are you looking for a course to develop your technical knowledge while you are having fun? Then this class is for you!

Expect to play, fall, spiral, roll, release, jump, connect, fly, make contact, enjoy the pleasure of motion... Looking forward to meeting you on the dance floor!

Geweldig! Enorm inspirerende les met fijne opbouw. Veel creativiteit en ruimte om zelf te ontdekken op de vloer. Maroula gebruikt haar hele lichaam, zet veel vloeiende bewegingen in en vraagt je als danser je lichaam volledig in te zetten op alle facetten. Echt een aanrader.

After having taken a break from dancing for a while, it was really nice to have such an encouraging and inspiring teacher like Maroula! I really enjoyed coming back every week, as the environment with the other dancers was really accepting and open as well. I learned a lot of new techniques and ideas, and really enjoyed the choreography.

I love the energy of Maroula! She is a loving person and she enjoys the class as much as the students do. She has allot of material she wants to share so any dancer can find something they like in this class.

The lessons were structured in a very good way. The teacher split the choreography in small steps so that at the end you could combine everything smoothly and enjoy dancing! I learnt a lot of new things while the teacher created a nice atmosphere.

I absolutely enjoyed Maroula's class. I consider floorwork the style that is missing from Rotterdam! Hope it continues.

I loved Maroula's enthusiasm, her professionalism in explaining the exercises and giving feedback, and the movement material!! It was too bad that the studio was reasonably small but I do understand how difficult it is to find big studios in Rotterdam and I felt like Maroula was truly able to work her way around it! It was a good class for both intermediate and advanced dancers.

As part of that study, she was invited for various intensive workshops and a prestigious one-month training in Spain.
