Based on his Company Decalage repertoire and experimental approach to movement, Marso’s signature style of work often evolves and is inspired from Martial arts, Breakin, Popping, Contemporary Release, Ballet, Yoga and flying low concepts. The class includes conditioning, company repertoire and movement phrases, and is designed for professionals and also Bboys and Bgirls/street dancers wanting to freshen up and develop their movement range. Marso’s class is similar to a company class, with a more relaxed and informal approach.
