Ms Bravo’s classes are a playful combination of clear, safe instructions and joyful strength. Her approach to Contemporary Ballet requires precision and mobility without rigidity. Contemporary Ballet still uses the classical vocabulary and the aesthetics of a beautiful line, yet it gives dancers all the advantages provided by modern research and movement investigation. Ms Bravo's Contemporary ballet class has an incredible sense of multidimensional coordination, where the full body is contributing to the motion, for safety and skill development.
