Maria’s class aims to meet the multiple individual needs of today’s independent dancers. With a solid background in various Contemporary styles, Classical Ballet and Yoga, influences from a range of techniques appear in her class.

Attention is given to correct alignment of the skeleton to achieve greater freedom and mobility in joints and muscular systems, aiming for a healthy and sustainable use of the body. Making use of gravity, the different physical dynamics of the body, the minds presence and imagination and musical influences her class offers a structure where the dancers strive for artistic expression, physical virtuosity and daily maintenance goes hand in hand. The class combines choreographed and improvised exercises and wishes to function not only as a place for dancers to prepare and develop mentally and physically, but also as a way to connect and exchange artistic ideas within the community of dance artists.

Swedish born Maria Nilsson Waller is a freelance dancer, choreographer and teacher based in Dublin, Ireland. Her choreographic work is presented at various festivals and venues around Europe and has been described as poetry from the lingonberry forest, idiosyncratic, pure and entirely mesmerizing.  www.marianilssonwaller.com
