The ballet workshop focuses on correct alignment of the body, activation of different muscle groups, and on building the dancer's flexibility, strength, stamina, and coordination. By combining different dance styles, from classical and contemporary ballet to movement techniques such as Floor Barre and floor gymnastics, Tetiana adapts the classical ballet to the needs of dancers in their daily practice.
