After being contacted by the Sino-Dutch Dance Festival in China, HJS recommended two teacher/ choreographers - Keren Rosenberg and Joost Vrouenraets. They will teach at there this month More info about the festival is to be found here.
HJS has been audited and again approved by the CRKBO as a professional educational program and continues to stay BTW free!
Many of you have seen the artist Edgar Jansen in the studio making drawings or watercolors of dancers. The dancer/journalist Mira Petrova has interviewed him, and we are happy to present this interview on the HJS site http://edgarportraits.com/Docs/The-Vivacious-drawings-of-Edgar-Jansen.pdf
"What motivates me the most as a teacher is to observe how dancers seem to leave my classes feeling better than when they arrived. In other words, feeling healthier and more balanced.”
HJS regularly asks its teachers a number of questions about how they look at dance, teaching and more. This week dance blogger Lisa Kapan talked to ballet teacher Pedro Gomes:
Please pay for class before the class starts! If you take more than one class you cannot pay for the second or third class afterwards as the administration is then closed. Thanks for your cooperation.
