The choreographer has the power and the freedom to represent, through movement, form and music, the ideas that can then become works of art.
But what does it take to become a choreographer? First and foremost, students who want to walk down this path must develop a solid technical base and expand their knowledge of the various dance styles.
After this, they must acquire and perfect their own basic abilities in various creative fields. When applied to dance, this process also includes an analysis of gestures, an emotional assessment of the states of mind, the development of the capacity for abstraction, and a search for beauty in its most subtle forms. At the same time, the choreographer must also learn how to recognize the dynamic principles of space, time and energy, and the way in which the body interrelates with these concepts.
The course is divided into three parts:
1. Dance Studies
2. Choreography Projects: Music Impulse! (a short choreography inspired by a piece of music); Made in Florence! (a more elaborate choreography, inspired by a place or a monument in Florence)
3. The Ballet Project! (The final result of the workshop, the fruit of the studies of movement, work in the classroom, individual work, and the ability to improvise).
