Kosta’s teaching focuses 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 and games, movement vocabulary from contemporary and ballroom dance, and a tailored 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 the artists to approach their craft with thoughtfulness and authority. 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 committed to establishing a long-term connection with his students and providing individual feedback and support.
