Sovann’s class uses his breakdancing experience to teach weight-transfer coordination, allowing the body to move outside its vertical axis. He focuses on understanding the principles of physics rather than esthetics. The goal is to find pathways in the body that are harmonious, efficient and without impact on the joints. Sovann Rochon-Prom Tep teaches various break dance moves, without actually imitating the style. The movements are designed in a way to be easily interchangeable.
