RUBBERBAND METHOD

Victor Quijada’s choreography combines urban, contemporary and classical principles and is influenced by experiences of the street, on stage, and on camera. The RUBBERBAND Method prepares the dancer with exercises that build agility and precision whether dancing on the feet, on the floor or upside down.

Basic principles to be addressed include: the distribution of weight outside of the plum-line axis of the upright skeletal structure; the agility in hand, elbow, and shoulder inversions; and the use of the body and all its surfaces as 3-dimensional and multi-directional carving tools. Participants are introduced to a movement hybrid that is influenced by urban and contemporary dance vocabulary, while emphasizing interpretation, decision-making, use of rhythmic variations and partnering.
This movement approach helps dancers navigate their spines and bodies thru space between vertical and horizontal orientations, and prepares contemporary and classically trained dancers for floor-work commonly associated with break(dance). With the RUBBERBAND Method, dancers will be ready to engage the floor with authority and finesse, while negotiating their body through space using textures that are adapted from urban approaches.
