Contemporary/Somatic led by Zoe Camilleri, Florinda Camilleri, Julienne Schembri, and Rachel Calleja.


Bookings are to be made in advance by contacting the sessions leaders.


Zoe Camilleri

The Iżfen contemporary classes led by Zoe are aimed for people who feel a calling to move and dance. Zoe started her professional dance journey with ŻfinMalta in 2014 as a full-time dancer. As a freelancer her roles range from dancer, performer, maker, educator, rehearsal and movement director and seamstress. She has been leading the Iżfen contemporary sessions since their start in 2021 and is excited to be back leading this growing and developing platform.

Iżfen is a space where people of any dance experience are welcome. During Zoe's open sessions we move away from focusing on aesthetics and learning stylised movement and move more towards finding and investing in how each of our bodies like to move. We will physically explore fluidity, coordination, groove and dynamics mostly through guided improvisation and simple contemporary dance techniques. If you would like to join, or are interested but have any questions, get in touch with Zoe on her email zoe.camilleri1@gmail.com


Julienne Schembri

‘Somatic Dance’ is Julienne’s offering for the Iżfen series. Each session will engage in a creative process of learning dance calling from each persons’ felt experience. This class invites you to become an explorer, to investigate how movement, breath, mindful sensing and touch, can help you explore dancing from within.  We will introduce fundamentals for floorwork taking inspiration from concepts of the developmental movement patterns to support the development of dance technique, alongside improvisation and partner work to unleash the expressive dancer in you!

Julienne Schembri is an independent artist working in the community and a movement educator.  She holds a Masters from The London Contemporary Dance School, and is a certified movement analyst through Laban Bartenieff Movement Analyst with EMOVE Institute in The Netherlands, where she currently teaches as an assistant on their modular training programs.  Independently, she works as a somatic movement educator to create communities of people moving together. She is co-founder of Dance Beyond Borders whose intention is to unite diverse people through the Arts.
