Experimentation and research, combined with unconditional love for contemporary dance and theatre, are the key elements of Enzo Celli's work. His relentless curiosity has given birth to a structured technique permeated by poetry. While Celli has codified a technical language belonging to the contemporary dance field called MEME, it is in the use of simple gestures that the essence of his poetic language reveals itself. Enzo Celli's work, focusing on man, creates an uncommon poetic language capable of dealing with the greater world of which it is part.

Teacher and choreographer Enzo Celli's engagements include: Peridance Contemporary Dance Company (NYC), VIVO Ballet Professional Training Canter (Rome), Sam Houstone State University (Huntsville - Texas), Sarah Lawrence College (NYC), Bashkortostan State Academy (Russia), EBA-UFMG University (Belo Horizonte, Brasil).

Anabella's classes focus on using the body as a sensitive, vibrating instrument of expression, studying, discovering and practicing the principles of: presence on stage, the anatomy of the body in action, coordination and control; the elements of dance: time, space, energy and movement and exploring the principle: Motion Creates Emotion / Emotion Creates Motion. The emphasis is on the journey rather than the destination, on understanding the impulses generated by movements and gestures.

-to offer students a supportive environment in which to develop creative capacity as an interpreter, prompting personal and professional development.
-to explore the technique of dance, developing professional growth, and increasing the student's stage presence.
