Regular Classes

Contemporary Creative Dance | Early childhood classes

Creative dance is an artistic and pedagogical expression that, in a playful way, helps children develop a healthy relationship with their bodies, with movement, with space, and with their surroundings. This activity allows the development of concentration, creativity, body awareness, and relationship with other children.

In recent years, MND has developed this practice, always based on daily life. Dance exists everywhere, from the moment we wake up until the day ends; in Nature; in the organization of a city; and in the unnoticed movements of our body.

Early childhood classes look at babies’ bodies as a whole, introducing them to the first movements of dance: opening, closing, turning, swinging, looking, joining, and moving away. The movement of the body is in turn explored in space based on a pre-defined theme that serves as a thread for the imagination, or a sound theme of contrasting dynamics.

Contemporary Creative Dance | Lessons for children

Where does Dance come from? Do I feel it inside me? What makes me dance? What does dance talk about?

We will explore the importance of the body as a way to express emotions through movement, time, rhythm, and poetry that only dance can tell.

Through technique exercises, choreographic constructions, games and small explorations of themes, we will discover that dance exists everywhere… at home, at school, on the street and, mainly, in the body, in relation to the world that surrounds it.

Movement and Dance Program | Classes for adults

It is intended to continue a space where Dance can develop with contemporary bases, taking into account some principles and tools from other kinesthetic disciplines.

Movement, perception, space, time, individual work, contact are some of the elements that make up these sessions. The elements will be addressed through coordination, repetition, exploration and improvisation, basic components of learning in Dance. It is a space open to all interested in the research of movement and dance, so essential to human development and balance!

Next year, the theme for the adult dance and movement program will be “coming home”.
