Workshop Description

Art of Stepping – Written Language of Step

Teacher: Jessica ‘REMO’ Saul, Founder of the Art of Stepping®️ (USA)

Created by well re-known choreography and educator, Jessica ‘REMO’ Saul, Founder of the Art of Stepping. The system leverages all 26 letters of the English Alphabet and Leonardo Da Vinci’s artistic rendering known as the Vitruvian Man as a symbolic base to represent movement through beats, counts, degrees, angles, etc. The system has allowed AOS to send written choreography throughout the entire world without visual presentation. Since its public launch, AOS has only released 15 codes to AOS Pro Team and After School Programs across the nation.  In addition, the system delves into formations, levels, definition of beats and most importantly choreography. Remo system is trademarked and copyrighted securing that it is the ONLY Company in the world that can teach this curriculum. Instagram: House Of Remo

 

Body Percussion – Through Music

Teacher: Enric Piza, Body Percussionist (Spain)

We will discover body percussion with games and musical challenges. We will be exploring rhythm work and creating combinations.  Get ready to generate moments of fun while getting to know the sound of possibilities using our body. All of this will be wrapped together with enhancing creativity and inner rhythm that will illuminate via pop music. Are you ready? Instagram: Enric Piza

 

Percucolours

Teacher: Noé Forés, (Spain)

Using this new musical tool, our students will develop their artistic skills.
With it, they will be able to create, perform and play with their own body percussion choreographies individually or in groups. At the same time, we will boost their reading, attention, and awareness skills through stimulation with colors. Make your students be the focus of their learning! Instagram: Mr.Noe

 

 

Body Percussion

Teacher: Santi Serratosa (Spain)

From the SSM Method, based on sound and musical resources, it is intended to facilitate the appearance of different sensory, cognitive, emotional and binding processes that promote creative experiences and link people’s interests with their physical and intellectual capacities. This method approaches, through body percussion, pedagogical currents that give great importance to improvisation, creativity and rhythmic language expressed with our body. It is in this scenario on a one-to-one basis with the students, where the SSM Method has play, expression and creativity as the bases of a psychosocial approach of high value in health.
