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 and the purity of classical formalism, Quijada has been demolishing barriers between these contrasting dance styles for more than 20 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.

This workshop, led by the company’s performers, will offer participants the chance to learn about the RUBBERBAND Method and our repertoire.

Workshop participants can expect 5 to 10 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.


In June 2023, six performers of the company directed the Summer Intensive:
Rion Taylor, Paco Ziel, Jessica Joy Muszynski, Jean Bui, Daniela Jezerinac, Jovick Pavajeau-Orostegui
