Since 2008, Maria has been teaching creative dance classes and workshops to a range of ages and abilities in both Primary and Secondary schools as well as for professionals. The core of her classes is same for all, the enjoyment of moving, together and individually. Her interest lies with performance, expression and the ability to be seen.
