Terri Wright / Horton technique and repertoire
Myrna Kamara / Classical technique and variations
Laccio / Urban and repertoire
Matilde Demarchi / Matilde’s Braid and Gravity

The Ailey Extension and Orsolina28 will be dedicating a week to modern American dance.
Designed to convey Alvin Ailey’s philosophy, classes during this workshop week will focus on Horton technique, which incorporates diverse elements of Native American Folk Dance and Afro-Caribbean elements. It is invaluable for the dynamic fluidity of movement, and on the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre‘s repertoire of masterpieces. Complementing the program there are classical technique classes with Myrna Kamara accompanied by the pianist Robert Ashby and urban dance classes, as well as Matilde’s Braid and Gravity classes with International Master Trainer Matilde Demarchi, to prepare the body for intense days and classes.
At the end of the workshop a student will be granted a scholarship for a week of classes at the acclaimed Ailey Studios in New York. The program is an opportunity to explore the diversity of styles and techniques associated with Alvin Ailey.

Dance and Nature

Our facility is designed to provide a shared experience, immersed in Nature.
A day’s work starts after breakfast with various activities to complete and develop a dancer’s life.
Lunch is prepared with fresh produce grown in O28’s very own vegetable garden and is served at the end of the morning.
Lessons then resume for the rest of the afternoon.
Optional Gravity classes are available before dinner. However, students who would rather relax can easily do so while enjoying the amazing view.
All participant activities are monitored and conducted under the careful supervision of tutors.


Participants who choose the full board option can stay at the Glamping campsite, with its permanent, fully equipped tents, under the expert supervision of tutors who spend the night with them.
The tents are all equipped with a bathroom and a toilet, a sink, a shower, hot water and heating.
