Constantin is developing new methods of teaching addressed at different types of participants. He is concentrating on developing tools aimed at gaining a profound control of the body, as well as approaching movement with solid knowledge and creative confidence.The training proposes specific tasks directly related to the level of the students or professional dancers, from beginners to advanced. Custom trainings are developed and implemented according to the level and needs of each group and the participant individuals. Floor work, release technique, somatics, improvisation, as well as classical dance training, are some of the main directions, combined with a personal perspective on movement developed through years of working with different choreographers.
Another type of workshops is directed at improvisation and composition, focusing on using creative tools for performers and choreographers.
