Marko Germar has various training from ballet to Hip Hop and loves to fuse different styles of movement based on the interpretation of a piece of music. He specializes in contemporary style of movement that uses fluid isolations and physical strength. His goal in teaching is not to reinforce technique, which he believes should be done by studio teachers and owners, but rather to explore and enhance the bridge between movement and emotion which will help dancers lead to a better form of performance, expression and interpretation. His experiences in assisting many known choreographers in the industry, along with his job experiences as a professional dancer for 10 years, has allowed him to teach for numerous workshops and conventions, and has taught master classes for dance studios, of all ages, across the country. Beyond dancing, his passion is emotion and helping others to understand their own.
