15 – 18.07
The workshop provides an exciting opportunity to build a piece and perform alongside the choreographer in Dance Days Chania. Each day will begin with a contemporary dance class followed by the creation. Jose’s class is fast paced and aims to improve stamina through precise and simple movement patterns. The principles of the class are influenced by the diversity of traditional forms and there is a dynamic focus on the concept of ‘attack and release’. This technique allows joints to relax and energy to flow with maximum efficiency. Jose often uses counts to influence the dynamic of the movement and spinning to engage the core.
Level: This workshop is suitable for professional and vocational level dancers
During the workshop, participants will learn repertoire from Agudo Dance Company, including ‘Farruca’ and ‘Carmen’. The production will be influenced by the beautiful rhythms from Flamenco bringing them into a contemporary dance context. Participants will have fun learning and exploring these rhythmic structures and phrases at the heart of the workshop.
