IN THE COMMUNITY/EDUCATIONAL PROJECT

Rehearsal with Iran Elez

A  WEEK-LONG OPORTUNITY TO DISCOVER THE WORK OF CND DANCERS  

Emerging Talent, an activity within the ‘CND Educates’ programme, is aimed at students in the final years of their studies at Spanish Professional Conservatories and Superior Dance Conservatories, as well as at courses and dance competitions internationally.

CND Educates offers students the great opportunity of attending CND classes, given by company dancers, for a week, either as observers or as class participants. The classes will provide students with a real-life view of the professional life they are setting out on. By doing this, the CND aims at professionalising the sector and at promoting this art form among future generations.

By combining learning with a unique experience, CND Educates exposes students to a range of different experiences. That not only enables students to set themselves new challenges but also raises their awareness of the world in which today’s dancers move. CND Educates aims to promote tomorrow’s dancers, fostering their talent through such experience and helping them realise their dream of becoming dance professionals.

All conservatories, associations and courses or national and international competitions interested in applying to participate in this activity may contact us by email.

CND Educational Booklets

CND EDUCATIONAL PROJECT

Divulging the CND’s journey and repertoire.

The educational booklets were born of the need to divulge the company’s journey and achievement together with its repertoire. They are handed out free to those attending the open rehearsals. Under Joaquín De Luz’s directorship, these booklets will be created by specialist authors, such as choreographers, educators and researchers. They will touch on emblematic subjects within the world of dance, including matters directly linked to the CND’s activities; all with the aim of bringing dance closer to the public at large and making it accessible.

To read or download the booklets, you only need to click on the image and follow the link.

CND EDUCATE 2019

"SILENCE, WE'RE DANCING!" WORKSHOP

This all inclusive movement workshop has been created by the Compañía Nacional de Danza for the C.E. Ponce León. It has been designed for children with and without hearing and/or intellectual disability, in an environment of bilingual educational inclusion. Our aspiration is to provide students with a new communication tool, using the body, and offering the educational staff of the center tools and guidelines for improvisation. The suggested activities and movement guidelines contribute to strengthening creativity, developing group and individual listening and discovering the personal movement of the students.

#encuentrodepuntos: artistic research, dance and education

Graphic tools on a table

When we speak about contemporary performing arts the body is not only an expressive tool or an exclusive therapeutic field; education and body don’t merge only to train dancers or impose codes of conduct; the choreography is not limited to create beauty or to set up bodies for memory.
This research is directed towards those interdisciplinary places that appear from the performing arts; those tools, devices and methodologies that arts research brings and collects from the education. This is a necessary reflection on education, the body and its artistic, political and social contexts; a reflection about behaviors in which contemporary performing arts and school meet.

What has been #encuentrodepuntos?

#encuentrodepuntos was proposed as a workplace and a theoretical and practical reflection around artistic research and dance in education. The proposal is organized around ten meetings (five working sessions and five follow-up sessions) where we meet with a group of teachers, CND dancers and performing arts professionals.
Work sessions structure:
Block 1. Meeting Points
The first section is dedicated to read a few texts and watch videos from which we discuss about the artistic research and the body in education, so that might reflect on what mechanisms of these disciplines can be applied at school.
Block 2. Find the points
Development of stage, relational and choreographical exercises on which investigate from the practice, away from the production of manuals of exercises for the sake of exploration and implementation of research-creation methodologies of other possibilities.
Block 3. Points found
The sessions concluded with a space for dialogue to find common points between the subjects studied, their practical applications in the classroom and the axes of essential discussion of the ideas that emerged around the body and school.
The addressed subjects in the working sessions had also continuity in follow-up sessions, focusing on the following areas:
• Classroom and dissent
• Bodies in classroom
• Daily choreographies
• Diverse bodies

During follow-up sessions the possibilities of practical application of the research group were studied and recorded. From these observations, we created a blog to share texts and materials which acts as a store of exercises, dynamic and devices.

Each of the participants employed the sessions differently, here we see one of the initiatives that emerged from these meetings:

Educational Project

CND EDUCATES. PRESERVATION, DIVULGATION AND TRANSMISSION OF DANCE HERITAGE.

The CND’s educational project, under Joaquín De Luz’s directorship, continues with the ongoing implementation of those CND activities previously developed but now with an emphasis on accessibility and creativity. Our mission resides not only in preserving and divulging dance heritage but also making it accessible, bringing this artistic discipline to all kinds of audiences, so at it becomes part of their leisure and cultural lives.

The objectives of CND Educates are to design a socially-linked project forging contacts between the community and the CND. It aims not only to promote the art of dance but also to extend its practice and raise the profile of professionals who devote their lives to this discipline.

This section offers a wide variety of activities, from dance workshops in educational inclusion centres or events delving into the depths of dance and the performance arts, through to school visits and educational literature.
