The professional training programme is aimed at professional dancers. Artists from related fields and dance enthusiasts with the appropriate level of training are also welcome.


Nadine's work explore contemporary dance, incorporating movement tasks and situations that playfully connect people and focus on the energetics of body language. She generates a warm atmosphere and inspires students to work intelligently and push the edges of their limits. The workshop consists of exercises to awaken the body and generate awareness of the entire physical instrument. Attention is given to breath, joint articulation, muscle tone and stability to improve physical strength. 

Nadine invites everybody to participate in technical exercises, including floor work, games and challenging phrase composition. Students learn to activate and ground their center in a way that allows them to experience optimal freedom in their movement. Partner work, guided improvisations and theatrical tasks highlight the class activities to support playfulness and creativity in movement and expression. Her physicality is defined by a raw, powerful movement balanced with a special attention to detail, particularly in the movement of the hands. Playing with different textures, switching from light to thick, her movement is a consistent search for surprises.
