Shifting Roots – Alegado Movement Language

High performance level

The principles of movement, which we begin to explore in my beginning levels, are taken to a higher, more complex level of coordination of hands, arms, legs and torso as well as rhythmic changes, weight shifts and dynamic transitions. Embracing the search for a connection to the earth, allows us the possibility, the potential to reach upward to heights always necessary when our goal is to achieve high performance level dance training.

In my desire to distinguish the differences between my personal evolution in dance and my work with the José Limón tradition, I chose to categorise my work as: the Alegado Movement Language. This was done to give more substance to the fact that the foundation of all my somatic experiences since childhood to the present, have contributed to the movement vocabulary in my dance.
Going further, and even deeper, below this somatic foundation are the roots, which extend further down into the very soul of our Earth. And because, we as humans, are in constant movement through the Earth’s landscape, I have chosen to further define my work by renaming it – Shifting Roots.

Shifting Roots – Alegado Movement Language

Startup Modern

All my teaching reflects a dedication to establishing our relationship to the earth and to the roots necessary to anchor our freedom of movement. My desire is to have the students experience how this connection can influence how we initiate and attack our movement as well as how we can discover the very important transitions of weight, so important in our dance training. Coordination, rhythm, focus and, above all, honesty in movement, will be some of our goals.

ARTISTBIO: Joe Alegado

Joe Alegado has been a member and soloist of the Ballet Hispanico of NYC, Alvin Ailey Repertory Ensemble and the José Limón Dance Company performing around the world in some of the most famous dance works in the Modern dance repertory.

He has taught extensively throughout Europe and the world teaching and choreographing in diverse festivals, studios, institutions and dance companies. He is one of the original faculty members of ImPulsTanz Workshops (formerly Wiener Tanzwochen). His work in over three decades of working in Europe has been reflected in his evolution here at the ImPulsTanz Festival.
Even though his main focus is his teaching, his choreographic creations around Europe and beyond have served as a source of inspiration for a dance training methodology which uses the performance stage as a reference point in which to direct the flow, energy and intent of the class process. From the early years of teaching Limon Technique, to the present fusion of his own personal movement language, his work has metamorphosed from the unique expression of the fundamental principles of Limon's work, to the creation of his own class methodology: Shifting Roots – the Alegado Movement Language.
