Isvel leads open virtual Boston Dance Theater Company Class. This class is inspired from Cuban modern dance technique, which is a mixture of American modern dance and Afro-Cuban dances. The distinct use of torsion, undulatory and contracted movements throughout head, arms, torso and pelvis is predominant. In this class we learn technical elements, but the paramount goal is to allow the body to go beyond those rules. We do this by exploring the capabilities of our bodies to readapt technical forms in their own way by opening the possibilities to new personal experiences and languages.
