Modern Acrobatic Dance

During the lessons we will research the kinetic vocabulary of modern dance and we will work on both the physical capabilities (technique, dynamics, flow, balance and acrobatics) as well as the expansion of our dance memory. We will explore the possibilities of sequencing small and larger dance / kinetic combinations, and their functionality in space. We will play with the alternations in the composition of these combinations (sequence, quality and speed).

The aim of the course is to find the mechanics of each movement and its possible alternations, to play the limits of a three-dimensional movement in space and to develop a choreographically complex result that will emerge through simpler kinetic materials.

The course is aimed at people of all levels in contemporary dance.

Suzuki Training Meetings

The purpose of the meetings is to create a common place and time, where performing artists have the opportunity to learn about the Suzuki Method for Actors and to train together, based on its techniques. The need to hold meetings and disseminate the world-renowned Suzuki method arose after the meeting coordinator participated in the Suzuki Training summer program in Japan with Tadashi Suzuki, Kameron H. Steele and Aki Sato-Johnson. By encouraging their students to share the method and continue to train with a group, the meetings are not so much a lesson as a lesson, but a willingness to build a group theatrical practice environment based on the technical / physical code and the values ​​of the method.

QiGong – ShenDao

Qigong-ShenDao is based on the normal and basic principles of movement. Through this, we discover that every movement of our body is the consequence of an internal movement of energy. Its practice leads to a better functioning of the nervous and musculoskeletal system, as well as the internal organs. It offers us health and well-being and allows us to reconnect with joy and Life. For those who engage in a form of physical / artistic expression, ShenDao is a valuable tool as it enhances vitality and presence, giving flow and precision to movement. In a first phase, it allows us to be a conduit of energy, to guide it and to store it.
