Experiments and disciplines intersect as essential tools to promote a rich, flexible and accessible dance.
Aiming for the heart, emphasizing the essentials, extracting the structural minimum of each technique in order to offer each dancer a professional training.
This training is the result of a long history of pedagogical research in hip-hop dance for 10 years. Since then, the practice has grown to offer an active dance, shared by all, and engaging with a culture of transmission. A culture that has accompanied it since its beginnings. No one is required to be an educator, but everyone is required to participate.
