Diego de la Rosa – Exploring Possibilities

Diego de la Rosa

Exploring Possibilities

Diego de la Rosa’s classes are very physical and dynamic. The idea is to start the class with improvisation exercises to warm up while bringing us awareness into our own body. Followed by diagonals, the body is used with the goal of getting more possibilities in movement and mobility. During the class, the floor is used as a dance partner, helping us to find and create more possibilities and space between each other. In general, the sequences are mainly inspired by breakdance, hip-hop, experimental and contemporary, but also by martial arts, acrobatics and gaga. Diego never hesitates to add his own style and to use material that he works with his company “Frantics”. His biggest interest during his class is to enable people to get as many possibilities by trusting their own bodies and letting free the mind rather than thinking too much.

The workshop is addressed to anyone that has experience in any sort of dance, especially contemporary dance or any urban style.
