A seed has a great intuitive potentiality. If it finds the right conditions and a fertile ground to be nourished and grow, a transformative process will start and one day it will become a tree. Sensitive and CreActive Dance® is a similar process as it meets up with the different stages of human evolution. A weekly lesson will take place, in order to put together, piece by piece, a patchwork of the human being, that is organized vertically and embodied in all its physical structures and functions.
The starting point is lying on the ground where the effects of gravity are at their minimum. By lying on the ground you can activate the movement of the body structure at a very low frequency: if it is connected to free expression and is not constrained by form, it represents life at its origins, in the primordial waters, where movement is still fluid, aquatic and uncoded. Later we focus on gradually giving more density to the tissues, until our body reaches the Earth – phylogenetic acquisition of the reptile – where the body starts feeling its weight on solid ground.
The journey continues by gradually detaching yourself from the terrestrial ground as mammals (quadrupeds) up to a total verticalization as human being (two legged). These stages stimulate the sensorial neuromotor system and strongly affect the quality of movement.
Here below are some subject matters that you will find during the course.
One-year course, once a week for 3 hours.
Dance schools, theatre academies, training centres, sports and cultural associations.
A human being, thanks to the sensorial channels, sends and receives roughly 24 million items of information per second in the environment around him/her. This is probably the greatest gift a person has at his/her disposal.
Sensitive dance awakens this gift and makes use of it in order to improve the quality of one’s body movement. It arouses greater awareness of one’s potential, increasing self-esteem and allowing the different parts our body to communicate with each other, in a respectful and harmonious way. It lets us take root, encouraging to open up to the world, directing and guiding us towards our needs and our path in the world.
Experimental and research work is a fundamental part of the project. Most of the material used during classes will be supplied by the teacher. However, it may occur that technical support will be required on behalf of the school for some classes, based on the terms agreed upon by both parts.
