Salsa Somática – All bodies are welcome
Salsa literally translates to sauce and reflects a corporeality informed by diverse cultures and polyrhythms. In this class, engaging with rhythm comes first. Then, dancers are welcome to “go for the drama!” and develop individual performance interpretations.
Amelia Uzategui Bonilla and Juan Urbina are Latinx dance artists who met through MA CoDE at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts in Germany. Juan combines Venezuelan traditions into his contemporary dance practice: patterned steps, spatial figures, dynamics and initiations from the pelvis. Amelia is a certified practitioner of the Tamalpa Life/Art Process® whose praxis grounds itself in decoloniality, intersectionality, and the post-migrant experience. Together, they collaborate on an upcoming project titled: Perfectionism Detox.
