Description - In Movement
Blenard’s teaching deals with the transformation of movement and the building of deep dance vocabularies that derive from a conscious stepping out of our comfort zones. The parameters dynamics, sharpness and speed are therefore our main concern. In this way, the work aims to unveil and bring for- ward those unique features of our dancing personalities, which often remain deeply hidden. We embark on a journey of movement, taking our own life experience with us and translating it into an artistic language. We create a common story, a common world through movement and let a common choreography emerge from it.
His extensive experience as a dance teacher in professional dance companies and dance schools, as well as with umprofessional dancers, has developed his workshop work into powerful and mature material.
