More about Erika and Dima
Erika Hassan moved to NYC in 1992 because she needed to dance. She began studying ballet with Sara Neece and Jan Miller. Her technique consisted mostly of brute force and desire! Fortunately, in 1993 she met Juliu Horvath (founder of the Gyrotonic Expansion System) and began an intensive investigation into Gyrotonic and dance from the inside out. For five years she trained privately with Juliu and, in exchange, worked in his workshop where he still built the Gyrotonic equipment- staining woods and gluing foam cushions. She continued a career in dance with various choreographers in NYC including Heidi Latsky, Javier Dzul, Jennifer Muller, Maureen Fleming, and Soulskin. Erika spent 4 years in Brazil where she danced in Marcelo Pereira’s Zen Companhia de Danca. She then moved to Japan to study the avant garde dance form- Butoh – on Min Tanaka’s farm. She choreographed and performed in his theater Plan B in Tokyo. Erika is deeply committed to sharing the Gyrotonic Expansion System. She is currently a Master Trainer in both Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis and teaches trainings and workshops around the world.

Dima Fedorov began his physical education as a young boy in St. Petersburg studying gymnastics and acrobatics. He later competed professionally with Julia Kulakova throughout Russia and Europe. He graduated with a Masters in Sports Acrobatic. Dima later took his acrobatic skills to the stage in the Hermitage Theater with choreographer Alexsander Kondratuk. He attended the Lesgaft National State University of Physical Culture, Sports, and Health in St. Petersburg, Russia. In 2003 he was introduced to the Gyrotonic method by the founder’s brother, Paul Horvath. Dima and his colleagues were the first group to bring the Gyrotonic Expansion System to Russia. Over the past 10 years he has deepend his studies in the method with founder Juliu Horvath, Gina Muensterkoetter, Sebastian Plettenberg, and Erika Hassan. Dima is currently a Master Trainer in both Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis.
