Naomi Perlov is co-artistic director of the "Maslool" – Professional Dance Program – Tel Aviv-Jaffa with Offir Dagan, choreologist, rehearsal director and Modern dance teacher. Naomi is the assistant of the acclaimed French choreographer Angelin Preljocaj for the past 30 years. She is restaging his pieces in Opera Houses around the world such as The Paris Opera, The New York City Ballet, La Scala, The Royal Danish Ballet, The Royal Swedish Ballet, Berlin Oper, The Netherlans Dans Theater, Marinsky Theater, Ballet de Capitole, Opera of Rome and more.

Naomi Perlov's classes develop technique, utilizing musicality and explosive energy of the dancers. The energy of the class gives the feeling of freedom into the movement and the use of space while strongly based on Ballet technique. The first phase of the class starts with a slow and simple warm up that moves through the arms, back, shoulders, and neck with rolling actions and Plies. At the second phase of the class the pace increases and as well the intensity of the exercises while moving bigger in space, using musicality, coordination and projection. The third phase of the class draws from Angelin Preljocaj repertoire and consists of combinations inspired from his most well-known works while adopting simple phrases, keeping both the style and the high standards demanded.

From the very beginning of the class until its' end, there is a process of a climax. The dancers will strengthen their center, force, self-discipline, and will develop their ability to move larger, faster and with more power.

The class is accompanied with a professional percussionist.
