DANCE AND BODY EXPRESSION

Learning about your body, getting to know its potential through movement, and being able to express feelings and emotions by means of body language represent the cornerstone of the Dance and Body Expression Workshop, which will take place at the University Venue in Alicante from October 13 until April 6 and will be taught by Cruz Vicedo Fuster.

The workshop, which will blend theoretical and practical elements, is part of a programme which integrates various fields of knowledge and basic principles of classical and modern dance, body expression and phono-breathing. According to Vicedo, ‘approaching various fields gives students the opportunity of identifying within themselves feelings and emotions that allow for a full enjoyment of the activity’.

The course will begin with an introduction to the body and its performance, which will deal with issues such as posture analysis and movement exercises. The first part of the course will focus on key aspects such as foot and arm poses and will provide references on the history of ballet, dance, body expression and mime, as well as on the latest trends in aesthetics; to make sessions more agreeable, all of these will be supported by practical exercises. ‘It is much more didactic to talk about dance in the Middle Ages and then learn a dance belonging to that period’, Vicedo explains.

‘It is also essential to work on body expression, which involves the emotional side, together with music, colour and feeling. What is more, at the end of the course, after the students have become acquainted with the entire span of artistic possibilities, we will stage a contemporary piece, one belonging to the vanguards’. In terms of requirements for this workshop, the professor states that ‘students are not expected to have any specific physical attributes, but be enthusiastic about new things’.
