Adria Ferrali's  Master Classes are styled in Martha Graham-based technique and composed of intense floor work exercises, standing combinations, and variations across the floor. 
Dancers learn the basics of modern dance movement and the principles of "Contractions, Oppositions, and Spirals". 
Students also perform and examine in detail classical variations and understand the technical and stylistic evolutions of this discipline in the twentieth century. 
The Graham method has brought a renewal in the theater and the arts from America worldwide, changing the structure of classical dancers' movements and shaping the body through expressive and meaningful gestures, giving prominence to elegance, dynamism, and deep artistic creativity.
Such knowledge will increase the physical potential of the dancers and will provide a stimulus to their deep and original creative impulses. 

Lessons are perfect for the work of young dancers and develop an awareness of the breath supporting proper alignment of the spine by strengthening the muscles of the deep plane of the trunk.
The cornerstone of the method is the strengthening of the center and the improvement of flexibility.


Theory Classes

The methodology examines the fundamental bases and various choreographic compositions with related training stages of representation. The lectures present video projections and information material.
