Ismael IvoModern Ethnic Dance Intermediate
Dance is a ritual: a sacred ritual, a social ritual. In the dance we find this double signification which is part of the origin of all human activity. Traditional forms of ethnic dance bring the students in contact with their own energy in relation with the other participants. Modern dance exercises are going to be applied to develop the consciousness of movement. Further on we are going to work on different sequences of movements and choreography. The aim is that the dancer understands how the universe is made up of infinite patterns of motion around a still centre and set himself to contact the others in a body dialog motion. When you start to turn, the universe moves with you.
