Limón Technique Intermediate & Advanced

full freedom, passion, confidence, and trust

The technique class taught by Risa is both, process and goal-directed. The goal is to have a fully integrated and organised body so that they are dancing with full freedom, passion, confidence, and trust in their physical information and in their efforts. Through the process of understanding alignment as an on-going principle of moving well and fully, the use of body weight is explored in relationship to the challenges of yielding to and resisting gravity. This ability to use momentum through the elements of direction allows for the dancer to take risks. This is extremely important as it impacts dynamics. The use of breath and dynamic texture through musicality are some of the fundamental elements that are explored. Focus and intention having a strong relationship to space is primary, as without those two elements, dance stays internal and does not honour the relationship between stage and audience.

Ultimately, the hope would be that the dancer gains a powerful technical capacity with the ability to dance poetically and fully. Through her belief that the technique of José Limón is a masterful way to achieve the above, Risa calls upon her years of training, teaching and performing his works to explore all of these elements.
