Exceptionally well conducted, a perfect mixture of technique, choreography and expression. A lot of support and good feedback!

Overwhelming! I bring back not only a better technique but also a totally new approach to the character and interpretation of dance.

A truly wonderful week of experimentation and growth. A nurturing and open environment with dancers from all over the world in an idyllic setting. What more could you ask for?

After this week of dancing and moving, the body feels fresh still and the mind open and inspired. Thank you! And until next year!!
