TRAINING, 2018/2019

Orsolina28 is a place dedicated to dance and the joy it implies. The dance studios, with wide windows overlooking the vineyards, allow dancers to be in direct contact with nature. The views and light from the passing sun suggests that at any hour dancers are working and learning under the most natural setting. It’s a place dedicated to the connection and return to where we come from, so as to get an utter and deeper awareness of our own self through the study and practice of the art form.
During the academic year the school offers preparatory courses in classical and contemporary dance, Pilates Matwork and Gravity Training System®.
