This course offers a training programme in contemporary dance and choreography aimed at anyone who wants to start or further develop their knowledge in contemporary dance and choreography as a method of creative, personal and group development. Cía. Danza Vinculados believes that the best way to promote this development is through diverse groups led with inclusive and participatory techniques that strengthen the group and each participant on a corporal, relational and artistic level. Therefore, we open this course to adults of all ages and with or without disabilities. The team of teachers are characterised by their extensive professional experience (trained at the Laban Centre in London and Holland) and lead the training, professional and inclusion programmes of the Danza Vinculados Company and its associated professional Anglo-Spanish company Lamat Dance Company.
Students in this dance course will benefit from the organisation’s extensive national and international networks and will be invited to participate in parallel projects such as the “Danza Sin Barreras” Dance Days held at the Centro Federico García Lorca or the Teatro Alhambra. The course is planned on a termly basis but with a projection to continue in the following two terms of the course. During the choreography sessions, the creation of a collective dance piece is proposed.
