RUBBERBAND METHOD

RUBBERBAND METHOD

The hallmark of the company, the RUBBERBAND Method comprises a unique choreographic vocabulary developed by Victor Quijada. It is now taught throughout the world in university programs, workshops, and master classes.

Fascinated by the raw dynamic of Hip Hop/break-dancing and the purity of classical formalism, Quijada has been demolishing barriers between these contrasting dance styles for more than 15 years now. The RUBBERBAND Method initiates participants to movements issuing from the blending of urban and contemporary dance, with a focus on interpretation, decision-taking, the use of rhythmic variations, and partnering. This movement technique emphasizes transitioning from vertical to horizontal and prepares dancers with classical or contemporary training for floor work.

Workshops in the RUBBERBAND Method are offered to established professional dancers who want to diversify their expressive language, as well as to advanced dance students.

WINTER INTENSIVE - mONtREAl

RUBBERBAND is holding a workshop for professional dancers in Montreal once a year during the winter.

From December 9 – 14 and December 16 – 20, 2019

The Workshop
The workshop will give the selected participants the opportunity to work with Victor Quijada and many of the dancers of the company.    

Workshop participants can expect 11 days of intense work on the RUBBERBAND Method. Weight distribution around the centre of gravity; agility in the inverse position supported by hands, elbows, and shoulders; and the use of the body as an instrument of multidirectional/tridimensional carving tool for space will all be taught. Participants will be initiated to a vocabulary issuing from the blend of street and contemporary dance, with a particular focus on interpretation, decision-making, the use of rhythmic variations, and accompaniment.
