BODY FUNCTIONS - October 2013 / May 2014

Contemporary Dance Classes

Premiere DanceStudio




The dancing body has always been our main interest. We often ask ourselves which would be the best way to offer our new students (that approach contemporary dance for the first time), a variety of principles that will allow them to embark in a rich, creative and safe exploration of movement techniques.

For us, the main challenge lies in the relationship between clarity and mystery: oftentimes, both teaching and learning can become a repetitive process and, as teachers, we find ourselves pushing the students to give more 'life' to the material studied, to 'play' in order to increase the 'fun' factor.

We want to develop the dancer/student's perceptiveness and awareness in order to facilitate their understanding of their own personal and physical limits, through the study of different contemporary dance techniques.

We aim to move towards a vital, effective and flowing exploration. We want to put together a journey by creating a path that will lead us to a full, authentic, sophisticated and inspired way of dancing.

The course's objective is to let, in equal measure the professional dancer and the beginner, achieve a complete knowledge of their own body and its functionality through a multifaceted array of classes, from preparation to movement, contemporary technique, floor work and choreographic composition to contact improvisation. The students will also deal with various stretching techniques, release techniques, manipulation and massage with a partner.

Each year, MotoMimetico offers its students the possibility to continue  in their artistic path by granting scholarships and allowing them to be involved in the company's productions.
