Ecstatic Somatic with Juan and Amelia
OPEN LEVEL ONLINE DANCE CLASSES with Juan and Amelia
Taught in English con un poquito de Español
12:00 PM (12:00) EDT = 6:00 PM (18:00) Central European Summer
Somatic-based dance improvisations focus on waking up the movements of the spine. Further guided dances serve as an alternative entry point into the feeling and sensation of polycentric movement, when the body moves from more than one impulse. The end goal is ecstatic embodiment.
Our Values: Using accessible facilitation practices, Juan and Amelia hold space for engaging with improvisation-based dance practices as healing, rhythmic possession. ALL BODIES ARE WELCOME. Each online session ends with conversation and exchange on the physical experience. (due to lack of admin, late-comers cannot be accommodated. You are welcome to message for tech support.)
Amelia Uzategui and Juan Urbina are Latinx dance artists who met at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts in Germany. Both completed their MA in Contemporary Dance Education. Juan combines Venezuelan traditions into his contemporary dance practice: patterned steps, spatial figures, dynamics and polycentric movement. Amelia is a certified practitioner of the Tamalpa Life/Art Process® whose praxis grounds itself in decoloniality, intersectional political thinking, and the post-migrant experience. Together, they collaborate on an upcoming project titled: “Perfectionism Detox: A dance with voices from the south.”
