Course Description Contemporary
Release technique / Limon
Modern dance emerged in the early 20th century and is a dance style that focuses on a dancer's personal interpretation rather than the structured steps that characterize classical ballet. Contemporary dancers reject the limitations of classical ballet and their movements come from the expression of their inner feelings.
The release technique is a mix of techniques more liberated than other types of modern dance. It emphasizes minimizing muscle tension during movement and, consequently, saving energy. This means that when we are going to make a movement, instead of just using our muscle power, we also use the breath, in the appropriate way to facilitate it.
In combination with the structured and much older limòn technique, modern dance offers both a strong body workout and an expression of emotions more than any other type of dance.
The course is related to the speed, continuity and flow of the movements, resulting in the body looking lighter and more flexible following a specific strengthening during the course. The last stage of the course is the choreography, which combines technique with expression. It is aimed at adults who are related to movement and dance, and want to exercise with immediate results. But also for minors and teenagers from 8 to 17 years old who want to get to know and love this unique type of artistic dance, with later extensions in the technique but also in the formation of their character.
