Via Activité Smart

La danse ne s'imite pas, elle s'initie de l'intérieur, et lorsqu'on copie la forme dans son apparence, on reste ignorant du suc qui la sous-tend.

A novel approach

Thanks to light-hearted exercises, students learn to use the body’s fundamental mechanisms (spiral patterns, balance) in conjunction with the laws of physics (gravity, centrifugal and centripetal forces).

This constitutes the essence of all Oriental dances but also african or afro-latin dances. It is the key to achieving fluidity, presence, the saving of energy, improvisation, memory and the sense of rhythm. Without it, there is only "technique" and the dance is becoming westernised.

Moving from the western way (mental/muscular) to the eastern way (energetic), learning to "not do", requires careful work and is a unique experience. It also enriches the practice of other arts (authenticity, awareness and fluidity) and improves the quality of movement in every day life (ergonomics).
