Ismael IvoModern Expressive Dance Intermediate
technique as a pathway for free imagination
Movement is used for the research of the body's anatomical potential to enable a better understanding of its form and thus learn to discover and express its mental and emotional dimensions: dance for a sensitive and intelligent body. This class uses the anatomical basics of the dance technique of Lester Horton, in connection with release and contemporary dance exercises. Respecting the human anatomy, it helps to correct physical weaknesses. It introduces release to the torso and extension to the arms preparing a dancer for any type of dance. In choreographic phrases we will play with time, rhythm and movement quality exercising necessary skills for today's dancers. Special attention will be given to the dancers’ capacity to develop a convincing performing character with emotional skills. Thus technique is understood as a pathway for the creative process and a free imagination.
