Finishing Fulbright Schuman residency in Atlanta

Posted on

1My Fulbright Schuman residency in Atlanta is coming to an end. Five months of rehearsals, workshops, performances and good time with Full Radius Dance. I have learnt so much from Douglas Scott (artistic director) and the company dancers. A team with strong dance technique and contagious enthusiasm, I couldn’t ask for more. I am so happy to have this opportunity and thank you to dancers Sara, Shawn, Laurel, Lindy and Andrew for having me.

You can join us for a short discussion of my residency and performance with Full Radius Dance on 26th of January at 6pm, The Trolley Barn (63 Edgewood Avenue Northeast, Atlanta)

Tango for people with Parkinson’s

Posted on Updated on

090614-adaptive-tango-CC6This is my second time volunteering in a dance program for people with Parkinson’s at VA hospital in Atlanta. Program designed by Dr. Madeleine Hackney that helps develop cognitive and motor skills and at the same time improves the balance and coordination. The classes based on partnering, where we volunteers help and dance adapted tango with people with Parkinson’s. The dance instructor is Ronda Patino. A very enriching experience.

IMG_20141006_121940It’s good to be a Fulbright Shuman scholar and get opportunity to see things behind the scenes. I work with a dance company, sometimes i take photos, assist with the music, help with the costumes and i constantly meet other professionals.

This is the evolution of a dance piece Bête Noire (choreography Douglas Scott), first section was performed at the MAD festival last March, but now all four sections are done.

I took some photos while they were rehearsing. All dancers were focused but I couldn’t stop laughing at Shawn’s hearts pants!

Ser becaria de Fulbright Schuman me permite ver las cosas desde el otro lado. Trabajo con la compania de danza, soy parte de los talleres, a veces soy la fotógrafa, ayudo con la música y con el vestuario y estoy conociendo otros expertos del mundo de danza.

Esto es el desarrollo de la pieza Bête Noire (coreógrafo Douglas Scott). Actuaron con la primera parte en el festival MAD de Atlanta en Marzo 2014 y ahora terminaron con la pieza entera, que son cuatro partes.

Tomé algunas fotos en los ensayos. Los bailarines muy centrados, pero yo me partí de risa con los pantalones (los corazones) de Shawn.
