Frequently Asked Questions - take a look at the below FAQs for more info:

  • What technique will be taught at ŻfinMalta's Xmas Intensive?

ŻfinMalta - National Dance Company - is a contemporary dance company. Even though its dancers are professionally trained in ballet, the work that ZfinMalta produces doesn't focus on one particular dance language. Rather, it explores different contemporary dance practices. For our first Xmas Intensive we want to expose the participants to our repertoire and therefore, the technique which will be taught, such as floorwork, release technique and Cunningham-based classes for warm up, will equip the dancers with the relevant tools to address the repertoire session. There will be future opportunities to study various different ballet techniques, however this Xmas Intensive is thoroughly invested in exploring ŻfinMalta's repertoire.
