Susan Klein is the founder and director of the Susan Klein School of Movement and Dance. She has been developing Klein Technique™ since 1972, teaching dancers to use their bodies correctly thus decreasing their possibility of injury and increasing their capacity and longevity as dancers. Hanna Hegenscheidt will assist Susan Klein with the class. She works as a choreographer and dancer mostly in Berlin, where she teaches Klein-Technique™.

Klein Technique™ is a process through which the body is analyzed and understood to improve and to further movement potential. It is intellectual in that it uses anatomical realities. It is corporeal in that we strive for an internal knowing, an understanding which is integrated into the body. Klein Technique™ works at the level of the bones, to align the bones using the muscles of deep postural support. We don’t work to exercise these muscles but rather to become conscious of their role in the support and movement of the body. We work for the body to become elastic, responsive, and open to choices and expression.
