Dance and choreography

About Rena Brandenberger

Rena Brandenberger studied contemporary stage dance in Berlin and at the Institute of Dance Studies in Bern (MAS dance/performing arts). The dancer and choreographer from Bern has performed her work in Bern, Zurich, Rome and Berlin, among other places. She has staged numerous productions of her own, is responsible for the open-air dance productions in Bern's Rosengarten and has choreographed for Theater Basel, the Zentrum Paul Klee and Swiss television. In addition to her own weekly classes in Zurich & Bern, she regularly teaches for public and public schools and is invited to give masterclasses and workshops throughout Switzerland and beyond.

Dance

Rena's classes are a colourful mix of everything that unites her dance world: contemporary dance peppered with elements from modern, ballet and jazz – but Feldenkrais and yoga are also incorporated into the training.

Technical and strength-building exercises as well as bodywork elements are packed into a varied warm-up. This is followed by dynamic diagonals with turns, jumps and floor elements – sometimes practised individually, sometimes embedded in a choreographed combination diagonal. The choreographic combo at the end is a creative mix of the elements learnt: sometimes fast and dynamic, sometimes slow and lyrical.

 

Flow

Start the day right

The flow class is a relaxing yet energising mix of methods from yoga, Feldenkrais & Co. Varied stretches and soothing body mobilisations ensure a successful start to the day.
