Family Dance Workshops

For this year’s International Day of Families, May 15, the Compañía Nacional de Danza (CND) is presenting a family dance and movement workshop, so that children and adults may discover and enjoy a new world of movement on and developing upon actions that are already part of their daily lives, using their bodies and its expressive capacities.

The Family Dance Workshop generates a common creative space among the boys and girls, together with the adults accompanying them, establishing a cooperative bond that fosters a meaningful experience through movement and dance. By promoting creativity in the family, a personal language is woven through the use of different qualities of movement, physical contact, the use of space, breathing and music. Basically, we are using the tools of dance, games, improvisation, physical contact, use of voice and stage elements. These, and other tools, help the participants generate a new way of sharing, learning and relating.
