Juan Jesus Guiraldi


During the warm up we will register our body parts seeking to find the specific mobility of the joints and generate points of relationship between them. We will use elements of yoga, acrobatics, breaking dance and parkour to get strong and ready for the class.  Strong physical contemporary dance class suitable for advanced “movers”: contemporary dancers, acrobats, break dancers, parkours, street dancers and movement researchers. The possibilities of movement are infinite. We will look for a body at our disposition, allow ourselves to be, to find own places and put into practice the mix and the crossing of different ways of moving, in order to build a proper language that identify us.

After the warm up the class will develop into more complex dance sequences using elements of flying low, acrobatics, braking dance and parkour, leading to finally work individual and group improvisation. We will recognize and use all our body parts. We will build the general space, but also the own and particular space of each body using the gravity, floor, air, and spirals inside us. Music and sound will be used as means for experimentation.


  • Investigate various movement possibilities.
  • Link performers from different disciplines.
  • Evolve in our own and personal investigation of movement.

This class will be taught in Spanish, and translated each day by Dance Ireland member Rocio Dominguez.
