In this 3 days course we will get introduced to dance from several complementary areas: sensory awareness, basic principles of movement and creativity. It will be a course to enjoy our body and dance improving the use of our own body as we open the movement possibilities from the pleasure of moving and dancing.

Sensory awareness. Experiencial and anathomic knowledge of our own body (palpation, visualization, sensibilisation, mobilisation). How is the use of our body? How can we have nmore eficiency and calmness? Breath, posture, muscle tone, join mobility, balance between flexibility and strenght. Through subtle and deep listening we will work individually and with the help of various materials and peers.

Basic movement and dance principles. We will practice basic coordinations that involve the work on weight/ gravity, balance and off balance, directions, etc. We will introduce basic vocabulary within contemporary dance: locomotions and shifting of weight, turns, jumps, spirals, swinging, sliding, rolling and falls, etc.

Introduction to creative movement. We will introduce several tools and resources at a creative level, to stimulate our imagination and enhance our creative and expresive capacities through movement. We will work from several proposals that play with the relationship between body-movement and space, the relationship between body-movement and time, movement qualities (energy/weight/strenght), etc.

Along the course we will work through exploration proposals, exercises and simple movement sequences, and improvisations. We will combine the practice individually, in partners, in small groups and with the whole group. There will be moments for observation and to share the lived experiences. In this course we will combine the sesions indoors in the dance space with some work outside in the natural surrounding.

about tragantCamp

what is tragantCamp?
Headquarters of tragantDansa located in the rural setting of l'Alzina de L'Aguda, in the Noguera region (Lleida).
It was born with the desire to be able to offer various activities in a natural environment, a place to enjoy and concentrate without the distractions, rhythm and stress that cities can generate.

what do we do?

A program of Residential Courses during weekends, long weekends and holidays.
Rental of spaces for groups, ensembles, companies or individuals who want to organize: workshops or courses, rehearsals, laboratories, work meetings, seminars or retreats, etc. in a space that allows concentration, coexistence and / or silence.

who are we?
14 years ago, Olga Tragant and visual artist Jaume Amigó, acquired some old chicken farms that had been in disuse for many years. Throughout this time they have been restoring these spaces. For years, the space held the work studio of artist Jaume Amigó and now we have recently opened a space for dance activities and body practices.

where are we?
tragantCAMP is located in l'Alzina de l'Aguda, an small village of 20 inhabitants located in the Noguera region (Lleida), between the towns of Guissona and Ponts, 125 km away from Barcelona and 110 km away from Lleida. Surrounded by wheat and rye fields, and some small forests of oaks and holm oaks, it constitutes a quiet and peaceful environment, with especially starry skies.
