Julian teaches an ­energising and enjoyable class with a warm and encouraging approach. With a range of exercises at the barre and in the centre, students will develop their basic technique and build up to longer combinations. Drawing from his performance and choreographic experience, Julian explores with his students how the movement can be ‘performed’, with an emphasis on dynamics and musicality.
