Immerse yourself in this unique experience with choreographer, teacher, and dancer Ana Beatriz from Galicia, Spain. The workshop day is divided into three master classes, designed for dance artists who want to explore the vision of another artist.


Workshop 1 | Technique
  “Like a fish in water”

10 am – 11:15 am

This class is an immersion in technique. Participants will work with the basic concepts of contemporary dance: the use of weight, gravity, falls, entering and leaving the ground, on/off balance, and use of space. The class will also include elements of Cuban technique, one of the foundational strands of her work.

 5 minute break


Workshop 2 | Improvisation + Movement Generation
                         “Alice’s mirror”

11:20 am – 12:20 pm

This class focuses on improvisation and movement generation. “Alice’s mirror” is the moment when everything changes, opening the door to the dancers’ own explorations, to meet themselves in their creative world. Dancers will develop choreographic skills via movement exercises provided to the them by Betty to enrich their movement quality.

5 minute break


Workshop 3 | Choreographic Practice
        “In the mind of the creator”

12:25 pm – 1:25 pm
