Kosta’s teaching focuses on on improvisation, ballroom and contemporary technique, camera performance, composition and creating and producing dance films.
Through his teaching, Kosta invites students (professional and non-professional dancers alike) to approach dance paying special attention to their own impulses, creativity and agency. He uses sensory exercises, improvisational tasks, fun games, phrase work drawing from contemporary and ballroom dance, and a great playlist to excite and empower dancers to discover something new about themselves and their relationship to dance.
Through creating a space open to risky play, improvisation and failure, Kosta aims to both relax and challenge dancers to approach their craft with more thoughtfulness and less anxiety. He draws upon a variety of movement practices to encourage dancers to connect with each other and their surroundings, cultivating empathy and community through motion. In his teaching, Kosta is comitted to establishing a long-term connection with his students and providing individual feedback and support.
