some the most influential choreographers of our time. These include, Jiri Kylian, Ohad Naharin and
a 4 year collaboration with William Forsythe.

Class description:
She incorporates the principals of Gyrotonics into her Ballet class, to give a deeper understanding of
the body, which can be applied to all areas of dance. There is an emphasis on finding more freedom
of movement, awareness of opposition in the body, creating more length and strength, as well as
initiating movement from the center of the body out beyond the extremeties. This awareness creates
more balance, and articulation in the body. Heidi emphasizes the importance being grounded,
transferring weight and allowing the dancer to move more freely and powerfully through the space.
