Six days a week, and up to ten hours per day. “You really have to be completely dedicated,” explains Alexandra Inculet.
Trust also plays a key role. “When we dance, we are in a sort of dialogue with each other”, she continues. “You allow your partner in, you trust his movements, his steps, his arms, his hands.” And then there is the matter of finding a balance between strength and control, which no good performance can ever be without. The key to this lies in the stomach. “The flowing movements and the clarity of style all come from the stomach,” says Inculet. “Its muscles must always be taut, it is the core from which we draw our strength.”
