THE JORNEY. 1 ACADEMIC YEAR (OCTOBER 2024 - JUNE 2025)

 

EMPTY. FIRST TRIMESTER (OCTOBER 1 - DECEMBER 19, 2024)

 

The first trimester focuses on the concept of emptiness. It is time to lay the foundations of movement, to let ourselves be permeated by the concept of Release, to update the information we bring and expand our body-mind knowledge and awareness through the understanding and integration (embodiment) of movement anatomical and biomechanical principles. It is time to cultivate the development of the most basic and at the same time most important thinking skill: observation, in the broad sense of the word. The subjects Structural BodyWork and Somatic Techniques will be essential for this beginning.

 

BUILD. SECOND TRIMESTER (JANUARY 7 - APRIL 10, 2025)

The second trimester focuses on gaining a deeper and broader understanding of technique and training and acquiring a broad personal repertoire of routines to work on and develop both. It is the moment dedicated to movement analysis and the study of the technique in depth from the base of anatomy and the biomechanics. It is also the time to begin to begin to expand the limits of our bodies and minds in a healthy and gentle way. Floorwork, Partnerng and Acrobatics subjects will be essential for this mission.

 

PLAY. THIRD TRIMESTER (APRIL 21 - JUNE 19, 2025)

The third trimester focuses on the idea of ​​globality. The objective is to integrate the information of the different subjects into a whole, to relate the different contents to obtain a global understanding. It is time to bring into practice all the tools and skills learned to define or redefine your own language. It is the time to play, explore, integrate, define and above all, enjoy the most intense moment of the program.

CREATE

Creation occupies an important place in our curriculum. This includes offering our students concrete tools to approach the creation process and, most importantly, offering them a space to share their own individual and collective creations. That is why the program includes a public presentation once a month.

SPECIFIC CONTEMPORARY DANCE PROGRAM

RELEASE BASED. SOMATIC APRROACH

 

We are committed to a way of conceiving training and physical preparation that moves away from the idea of ​​toning and focuses on the concepts of balance and globality. Our goal is to help our students to better understand their abilities and to expand their limits in a healthy way. Our pedagogy is nourished by science and experience, integrating knowledge of the classics with the most current studies on anatomy, biomechanics and neuroeducation. The subjects Structural Work and Somatic Techniques are key in this task. However, all the subjects of the program, especially the technical disciplines, are imbued with this somatic approach.

TECHNICAL DISCIPLINES

 

Our program includes those techniques and disciplines that are part of the common vocabulary of the contemporary dance scene today. Floorwork, Acrobatics, Partering and Contact Improvisation. they are the vehicle for our journey towards knowledge, the acquisition of new skills and the refinement of the technical aspects of movement.

PERFORMING PRACTICES

 

Our program offers something very unique and exclusive, the possibility of growing not only as a performer but also as a creator. The subjects Improvisation / Composition and Movement Research & Creation focus on exploration and reflection on aspects such as choreography, dramaturgy and the symbology of movement.

TEJIDO CONECTIVO ESCENA SPACE FOR CREATION AND EXHIBITION

 

We believe that the scenic experience must be present and be part of the process from the beginning to the end of the program. That is why we offer our students the chance to get on stage and live a real stage experience every month. Tejido Conectivo Esncena is the Monthly Stage Program of the Tejido Conectivo School, a space of freedom where our students have the opportunity to bring their own ideas to the stage, an open space to share their processes with the audience, sharing the experience with professional artists in a professional context.

  • SITE SPECIFIC. Performances in unconventional spaces (Market, Library, Museum).

  • PROFESSIONAL CONTEXT. Every month our students share the program with professional artists and experienced creators, residents and guests.
