Exploring the languages and techniques of contemporary dance, through a creative space open to dialogue, sharing and meeting with the other. Exploring emotions, sensations, ideas, memories, sounds and imagery that can be transformed into dances and movement stories.
Promoting active aging, combating inertia and preventing decreased mobility, by stimulating physical, intellectual and creative autonomy, regardless of the conditions of physical functionality and mobility. An invitation to explore creativity, combined with the pleasure of dancing, valuing the body of the experience.
