Detailed description of the work:

This investigation originates in the meticulous contemplation and with focus in developing the human potential. As a possible transcription of the voices that exist in our body, as a translation: from experience to words. An experience of continuous releasing: our matter, ourselves, our dance.

This view over the body and dance needs to be practiced to be deeply understood, reason why it is presented in workshops were we can apply these concepts and reach the origins of this investigation. We observe how dance occurs in our body and integrate knowledge from human body, thought and feel.

All the information presented in the different workshops is based in an investigation about the human potential and my personal experience as a dancer that I started to write in 1997 and was published as a book in December 2015.

Integral presentation of the learning system throughout breathing, contemplation, alignment and dance practices. We focus on investigating the information that arises from our way of doing, explore different possibilities of moving and create a map of our body integrating our heritage and the potential in our present.

 

Practice system

THE NATURE OF THE POWER IN THE BODY AND DANCE

ALIGNMENT / Inner training of the force

Everything is movement in life´s manifestation. Throughout the different classes we are looking forward to releasing our matter, to let the body be a channel through which movement flows.

We do a deep work in the tissues that give shape to our posture and in the way they determinate how we move, and the other way around.

The work is based in recognizing the nature of our body and our whole being as a part of the weave of life, to be aligned with who we are.

 

EXPLORATIONS

Trunk explorations and studies from “The Nature of the Power in the Body and Dance” practice system. We investigate the universe of movement given by the weave of information that conforms our body. This explorations arise as part of a practice of releasing ourselves, our matter and our dance.

DANCE / Classic dance´s language

The language that classic dance proposes is favorable to inhabit the tension between the biologic aspect of our body and its mysterious potential. A profound technical study with the incorporation of new contributions to this language from the study of anatomy, movement, forces and nature.

The contents of the alignment work are followed and taken to the dance study. This produces a radical change in the muscular weave organization, movement quality, space and music relation among others.

 

INTERVENE LANGUAGE

A study of the possibility to open, break down, vary, translate and transform a formal sequence of movement. Different paths that alter the way we move to intervene personally a language that dates back in time more than 400 years: classic dance.

BREATHING WORKSHOP (PRANAYAMAS)  

In this workshop we go deep into the Pranayamas practice, a breathing technique from the Rishi´s Culture Yoga I learned in the Aroué Asociation, founded and directed by Yogashree Aruna Nath Giri.

 

STUDY GROUP OF THE BOOK “Naturaleza de la fuerza en el cuerpo y la danza”(“The nature in the power of the body and dance”)

We meet to ask, to go deep and reflect on the contents presented on the book. We will link up this information with videos, other texts and practices.

 

All this activities are for students, art and health professionals and for anyone interested in the body as a way of access to knowledge and human potential.

 

Roxana Galand

From her experience as a student, a dancer and a teacher that allowed her to understand in different ways lesions, technique, dance and the human body, in 1997, she started her investigation about the principles of the human body and its movement.

This investigation keeps growing nowadays and in 2015 become a book “Naturaleza de la fuerza en el cuerpo y la danza” (“The Nature of the power in the body and dance”) grated by the metropolitan fund for sciences and art.
