CLASSES + WORKSHOPS
Monica has over 14 years experience facilitating classes and workshops for a variety of different ages and levels. This includes teaching young performers, adults, vocational and professional dancers, singers and actors.
Her workshops aim to build strength, performance and body awareness, through the use of weight, breath and dynamics. Classes are designed to challenge participants, whilst focusing on centering themselves so they are free to explore their extremeties. Monica facilitates workshops in contemporary dance technique, movement for actors and singers, choreography for stage and film and her own choreographic explorations.
Movement Coaching for Actors and Singers
Private movement coaching sessions are desgined around the participant's needs, with the main objective to enhance performance and develop physicality. Particpants can choose to learn and refine a specific dance style or choreography, prepare for auditions and/or focus on building the physicality of a specific character.
Coaching for Dancers
Private dance sessions allow participants to focus on refining technique and movement quality in a specific dance style (contemporary, ballet and partnering) to enhance performance. Dancers can also use these sessions to focus on rebalancing the body and conditioning as part of rehabilitation or injury prevention.
