Dealing with performance anxiety, developing energy projection, and creating character in dance.

Intensives are guided training programs with a specific theme. Each intensive combines a selection of technique drills, lectures and various assignments to help you develop certain skills. 

Get access to this intensive and all classes at the Iana Dance Club.

Dive into your full dance potential by engaging not only your body and muscles, but also your mind and imagination! 


In this program we will: 

  • address nervousness & your shaking legs when you are about to perform ⁣⁣ 

  • do dance and meditation practices for connecting with your body⁣⁣ 

  • talk about creating a character in your mind to project emotions, and reach the necessary quality in movements⁣⁣ 

  • work with your fears of stage, and practice ‘owning’ the space⁣⁣ 

  • learn how to overcome the awkwardness of training at home in an empty room, and still project emotions in dance⁣⁣.


Difficulty: All levels. 

Workload: High. 

Suggested duration: 3 weeks.  


If you follow our suggested duration of three weeks, get ready to invest 2-3 hours per week in your training. But remember, you can always go through this intensive at your own pace. Three weeks is just a suggested structure.


Additionally you will feel as if you are travelling to a dance retreat with me, but online! All NEW technique drills in our upcoming intensive were shot in Pamukkale and inspired by this unbelievable place!


Back in the day, Pamukkale was one of the most popular thermal pools in Turkey. It was literally a spa, first used in the 2nd century BC.⁣⁣ In Turkish, Pamukkale translates to “cotton castle,” describing exactly how the place looks. The area is famous for a carbonate mineral left by the flowing water. Over the course of thousands of years, this mineral has formed white water pools famous around the whole world for their healing properties. It sounds more like a fairy tale than a real place. The natural rock pools of Pamukkale are one of Turkey’s most visited destinations and also one of the most gorgeous, and we are going to take you on a dance journey there!
