Teaching

Gregory Lorenzutti’s contemporary dance classes are well known in Brazil and Australia for creating a sense of continuity in movement. For more than 15 years he has taught daily classes for students and professionals in Brazil and around the world, focused on creating an uninterrupted flow of movement and spatial connection with our internal body dynamic.

From his degree in Art Education at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Gregory believes that dance is a fundamental part of our self-conscious development and ultimately how we connect with ourselves and others. During his classes, people are stimulated to challenge their boundaries as much as be aware of their own physical limitations and surroundings.

Gregory draws on his background in traditional Brazilian rhythms, dances and physical training (such as Capoeira) and developed a contemporary dance practice which gradually increases the strength and relaxation of the body. In his view, learning dance is an activity that demands effort, energy, concentration and happiness. His classes are known for their rigorous physical and technical approach as well as their intense breathing and floor work.
