My experience at ZeroPlus DanceWorks was a journey to the inner side of my movements. It was a different way of learning dance. Space and time were provided in order to allow you to explore into the steps and movements. The focus is on the research of your own movements. It was not about copying the teacher, it was about developing the movement by experimenting with your body.

Soon one week gone after my rerun from one of my best experiences in this life, in courtesy of Gyula Berger at ZeroPlus DanceWorks, a contemporary dance school in Budapest. I was allowed to join all classes at this wonderful little school with so much heart space for two weeks as if I was a student there! That in itself is quite remarkable, and I will be for ever thankful for this opportunity! <3
The school has classes Monday-Saturday from 9.15-12.30, and
I participated every day. The week plan included classes in contemporary technique, ballet, somatic movements (Feldenkrais and Body Mind Centering), composition, contact improvisation and Pilates.
Believe me, its been like finding clear cold water in the desert for my soul, you have no idea, well some few do. I have learned so much in these two weeks. Its the power of love and passion for what you do, great teachers in technique and caring, and every day training! This creates magic!
