FUN, CHALLENGING, INCLUSIVE, AND SPECIFIC.
This workshop is designed to introduce and to deepen in modern dance technique concepts like weight transfer, transition in between levels, and body awareness. Making use of modern dance tools and exercises mixed with specific tools coming from somatic practices, Marta, proposes an approachable modern dance lesson technique. The class is based on the use of breathing, alineation, and body-space awareness. The participants will inquire about the potential of their articulated movement, the openness of the body worked through the relaxation and conscious use of the core and the awareness of the space.
Structure of the class:
Warm-up. This part is dynamic and it is meant to tune the body and mind for the rest of the lesson.
Set of technical exercises at the center. In this part, you start challenging yourself and learning new tools.
Application of technical tools to a given choreographic sentence that you will learn from the teacher. This is the most FUN part.
Cool-down. We will take a moment to thank our body for the effort and leave it relaxed for the next session.

As a choreographer, she is seeking for expressive and artistic languages that can evolve from the interaction and mixture of different art fields and formats. She aims to create vocabularies that entail a transdisciplinary language. Throughout her career, she combines contemporary dance and audio-visual work such projections and soundscapes.

Marta develops her artistic and pedagogic practise both inside and outside of the inclusive dance field, embracing the diversity of minds and bodies as an artistic value. She does this since 2014 independently and with the support of companies like Fritsch. Co (Psicoballet Maite León Foundation), Worm, and PIPS: Lab.
