Winter Workshop 2017

A New RUBBERBANDance Group Workshop in Montreal!

The workshop

RUBBERBANDance Group is holding its first training workshop for professional dancers here in Montreal. Under the direction of Victor Quijada, the company’s founder, artistic director, and choreographer, the workshop will also give the selected participants the opportunity to work with many of the dancers of RBDG.

Workshop participants can expect 11 days of intense work on the RUBBERBAND Method. Weight distribution around the centre of gravity; agility in the inverse position supported by hands, elbows, and shoulders; and the use of the body as an instrument of multidirectional/tridimensional carving tool for space will all be taught. Participants will be initiated to a vocabulary issuing from the blend of street and contemporary dance, and particularly focus on interpretation, decision-making, the use of rhythmic variations, and accompaniment.
