...it's a kind of movement. It is also the initial force. When enough energy is tied to a particular thing and friction is defeated, things are NYTKE forward.
It is like finding your limits and going beyond them, perhaps even leaving the comfort zone and thus learning.
It is also a stopping, because you can't NYTKE before you have stopped.
Sometimes NYTKE may be stressful 'why you NYTKE?' Or liberating ... NYTKE in relax manner with the rhythm of music.
If life in itself should be described by some movement, maybe NYTKE would be a good term for it. It lights up and turns off, but always seems to be moving forward or at least in some direction.
NYTKE, it can be big, gripping and even rude, or small and subtle, almost discreet. Sometimes it can be controlled and sometimes it takes with it. If you are quietly seated and listening carefully can you sense NYTKE - heart? I'm alive, here, now, now, now .. see you in the summer!

In addition to the professionals, we also offer open-level courses. Dance has a proven track record in giving health and well-being. We want to play our part in helping people find joy and self-awareness through movement and expression. Open-level classes are also offered five days a week, led by top professionals.
Some of the open level workshops may be interesting also for professionals, check out the schedule.
