Dance, as any living art, is a game, an intelligent game, I think, that nobody defines it as work and really it is, but pleasant.

The class has a personal origin with a joint – muscle heating and later, a bar in the center.
Physically, this work parts from the back and the diaphragm.

In my opinion, the most important thing is to modulate the qualities in the materials, vary within the same sentence, speed, volume, weight, density, etc.
The rest of the exercises are aimed at placing the body, locating the center, twisting and falling to the ground work.

The second part will work the way to put the choreographic material at the service of what the students want to tell, that is, dancing is not only to translate a movement on stage, but expressing something, sensations or telling a story.

Everybody will have to work with the class materials and develop their own ones to create a sequence, change the order, the speeds, repeat movements, etc, so that they can adapt the choreographic vocabulary to their needs.

The composition is one of the most important factors and almost everything is geared to it. So this course will focus on each student look for a way to create small choreographic pieces or a single creation.
