Frieda is currently on maternity leave until Autumn 2019.

Frieda started training in the GYROTONIC® method to enhance her classical ballet teaching. She was immediately enthusiastic about the freedom the body and mind experienced through this holistic method. 

Frieda enjoys incorporating visualisation of anatomy into her lessons to help understand how each body functions optimally, facilitating correct alignment and reducing the risk of injury. Sensitive to individual needs, she advocates an attitude of enquiry of how the individual can progress to his/her best ability. 

Having trained with English National Ballet School and dancing professionally in classical and contemporary companies in the United Kingdom, Germany and South Africa, Frieda is excited to be back teaching Gyrotonic and classical ballet in London. She is dedicated to life-long learning and is keen to continue growing through education, keeping up-to-date with the latest dance and movement practices.
