MISS

MARGARITA

Margarita started ballet when she was 7 and contemporary dance at 13. She has studied professionally in the Higher Private Professional Dance School “NIKI KONTAXAKI” – NIKOLETTA’S BAKALI” for three years, during which time she took part in many interesting projects and fascinating subjects, alongside ballet (Russian system, 14 hours weekly) and contemporary (mostly Limon system, 9 hours a week). She also studied topics such as ballet theory and contemporary, character dance (Russian, Polish, and Hungarian), Human Anatomy, History of Dance and Greek traditional dances. These studies enabled her to achieve her Diploma as a dance teacher of ballet and contemporary. She has followed contemporary seminars by Stephanos Bizas, Konstadina Eythimiadou and Ildiko Toth (Forsythe technique) and Katerina Andriopoulou. As for ballet seminars, she was lucky enough to take part in a few by Jean- Lucien Massot, Tamas Csizmadia, Virag Sothy, Yolanta Zahariev.  She also studied music in different conservatories, holding a Diploma in  Music Theory. Knowing music theory is a skill that helps her understand the connection between moving through time and space simultaneously and helps to teach children how to understand music. 

 

 She has worked as a part-time ballet teacher's assistant for 3 years in Athens and has led her own classes in London. Currently, she studies choreography and dance performance at Bedfordshire University. 

 

Apart from the academic work, she has taken part in projects like “Connect Athens”, which is an environmental organisation focusing on recycling. She danced and helped choreograph the breaking of the world's record of the biggest mosaic made out of recycled objects. She took part in the “Athens Video Dance Project” as part of a team with a choreography called “Waves”. Also, she took part in the International Dance Competition in Greece, and came fourth, with the Paquita and Lilac Fairy Variation. Since she started dancing she has taken part in many professional performances such as Chipollino, Grand Pas des Eventails- Pas de six, Paquita, as well as many choreographs by Nikos Gikas.
