Dance Pedagogy

Advanced / Intermediate / Beginner Contemporary Dance Class

The Class begins with a set sequence of continuous stretches and articulate movements of the spine and limbs that will allow us to connect with ourselves, our body and its center. We will place focus on breathing to help us warm up, energize and tone the muscles and joints as well as to open awareness of the balanced body and it’s/our presence in the space. In continuance, we will explore a succession of moves and some traveling exercises to challenge the body to be available and efficient in relationship to one another’s. We will put into action a dynamic-high-energy dance phrase that encompass floor work, technical sequencing and acrobatic body vocabulary, all of which I have acquired through my years of contemporary dance work in Europe.  I am a creative that uses improvisation and explorative formations so the body can articulate one’s sense of character. My classes always have the aim of growing one’s individual voice through movement and to share it with others.

Contemporary Dance Ensemble

Starting September 2018 Gisela created the Contemporary Dance Ensemble.

It is a project developed with a group of intermediate and advanced movers who meet weekly to train and create. 

Gisela Creus facilitates Contemporary Dance Ensemble’s class and a composition laboratory and leads the creative process so to have a final dance piece.

Dancers have the opportunity and space to explore and develop their own physical language and enter the process of creating compositions, both individually and as a group. CDE is interested in deepening the three stages of creating dance- creative process, editing, and performing. 

Since its start in September 2018 they have created and performed 3 pieces of work and a 2 dance films:

Area-Crea is part of the Professional Dance Education Program in Area, Espai de Dansa i Creació,  Dance School. It is an intensive week of workshops and classes lead by professionals in the field, that will share their work with the students, with the aim of providing tools and motivating a space where to explore and develop their own individual voices and also the awareness of creating in a group. 

This program can be executed in many different community groups, from professionals, dance students, beginners or any group of people that are interested in living an experience of creating with the own body, its movement and as part of a group.

Specific proposals can be developed.
