Anabella Lenzu
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.

Originally from Argentina, Anabella Lenzu is a dancer, choreographer and teacher with over 25 years of experience working in Argentina, Chile, Italy and the USA. As Artistic Director of Anabella Lenzu / Dance Drama, her choreography has been commissioned all over the world, for opera, TV programs, theatre productions, and by many dance companies. Anabella has written for various dance and arts magazines, and published her first book in 2013, Unveiling Motion and Emotion.
