LAMONDANCE CURRICULUM

Our program provides a broad curriculum, a solid foundation of knowledge about Contemporary Dance, physical and intellectual instruction and extensive performing experience enabling the dancers to expand their technical skills and versatility.

Training System

Contemporary Technique
Teachers: Davi Rodrigues, Lara Barclay & Guests.
This highly technical, movement-based class investigates the line of human movement and how it can affect the broader strokes of our dancing. Contemporary class combines elements of several dance genres where dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements.

Ballet
Teachers: Lara Barclay, Linda Arkelian, Reid Colton & Guests.
This class aims to explore Ballet as a Contemporary movement practice, bridging the space between tradition and potential. Approached through an anatomical lens, students will be encouraged to discover their individual perspective on effectiveness. This class will offer space for relevant and positive discourse around a potentially powerful form.

Improvisation
Teachers: Davi Rodrigues, Lara Barclay & Guests.
This class focuses primarily on the instinctual and immediate reaction to stimuli in order to develop a deeper awareness of inherent patterns and habits. Through practice and discussion, dancers will identify and harness the potency of impulse and response to develop more dynamic artistry and performance.

Body Conditioning
Teacher: Davi Rodrigues
This class improves technique and performance by strengthening the body’s core (abdominal and back muscles) while improving coordination, balance, alignment and optimizing flexibility. The result is more lift without tension, deeper pliés, higher jumps with less effort, tighter turns and improved extension and turnout. The class will also combine Pilates, stretching and floor work to help with; injury prevention, flexibility, strength, stamina and coordination.

Yoga
Teacher: Lara Barclay
This class will build flexibility, strength, controlled breathing, concentration with a carefully structured series of stretches.

Repertoire
Teacher / Choreographer: Davi Rodrigues
This class investigates individual phrases created on the spot as well as phrases from company repertoire. Students will focus on quick assimilation and exploration of movement in terms of quality, musicality and to build exciting and challenging performances during each semester.

Creation Process
Resident Choreographers: Davi Rodrigues & Lara Barclay
Guest Choreographers: Local & International
Dancers explore new and emerging areas in the exploration of creation and improvisation. The creative process is focused on the ability to take choreographic risks, and to facilitate the journey from conception through rehearsals to the final performance.

Performance
Throughout the season our program provides a range of different performance opportunities locally and internationally. Performances are a key component as the dancers train to develop their skills and adapt to different performing environments.

  • All performances will be clarified on the 1st day of classes in September, with updates throughout the season.
