NUESTROS CUERPOS, NUESTRAS DANZAS: Formación de BOOTY DANCE & TWERK con perspectiva feminista

Metodología

En esta formación de 10 horas, nos daremos permiso de desbloquear la zona de cintura para abajo, de explorarla y de gozar del poder de nuestra sensualidad. Empezamos con un tratamiento de la historia y cultura a través de diálogo y videos aportándonos los recursos adecuados para contextualizar nuestra experiencia con estas tradiciones de danza a la hora de bailarlas. 

Aprendemos a activar la pelvis mientras relajar los glúteos trabajando el "twerk" en sus varias posturas de la manera segura y correctamente con el método rítmico de trabajar 3 velocidades distintas con cada ejercicio. Seguiremos con técnicas de aislamiento del cuerpo que aumentan control y movilidad de cada zona (de la cabeza a las nalgas del culo y hasta los pies) mejorando coordinación, musicalidad y equilibrio.

Reforzamos el conocimiento del twerk mientras fortalecemos nuestro core y aductores activando la cadena muscular del suelo pélvico. El trabajo en el suelo nos devolverá al mundo natural y realizaremos una secuencia coreográfica para finalizar que se centrará en las transiciones y la musicalidad. Todo con un potente énfasis rítmico. Acabaremos cada sesión bajando las luces y haciendo un poco de “freestyle,” cada una moviendo como le de la gana: libre, potente, rítmico y terrenal. 

El lujo de tener 2 días seguidos de formación, aparte de crear intimidad y familiaridad en el grupo, es que nos dará la oportunidad de profundizar mucho en los conocimientos de esta cultura y expresión presenciando el poder transformador de la liberación de la zona pélvica.

Kim Jordan es socióloga, bailarina y coreógrafa de los Estados Unidos (licenciada en Sociología y Danza por la UNLV, 2005). Para Kim, gran parte de la expresión humana proviene de nuestra zona media y la manipulación de los músculos gravitacionales que trabajan para mantener nuestro equilibrio. Estas son las mismas fuerzas que registran alteraciones en nuestro estado emocional y que, por tanto, generan trabajo con un gran significado. Desde que fue testigo de la transformación mágica que esta parte de su cuerpo experimentó al crear una vida en su interior y verla nacer, le fascina el modo como se conectan las articulaciones y el poder que albergan.

Kim's interview on national TV here in Spain! Have a listen as Kim & colleague Maria Cabral discuss their project  "Journey to the Center of Pleasure" where they mix sexual education with corporal movement encouraging women to discover their own body awareness (especially the areas considered dark and dangerous like the female pelvis) to empower themselves and "resist from a place of pleasure." For them, feminism is not about renouncing their sexuality but being the proper agents of it: a role we've never really been allowed to play as women.

Reportatge: Viatge al centre del plaer

Fa uns anys, Miley Cirus ens va fer conèixer el "twerking", un tipus de dansa que ve, però, de molt abans que Miley Cirus nasqués. "Twerking", "perreo", "booty dance"... moure's de cintura en avall. Però aquest tipus de dansa està carregada de connotacions no del tot encertades .

KJC Headlines

Kim is based in Barcelona, Spain and teaches regularly from Monday to Thursday. On the weekends she instructs workshops, teacher trainings and theory courses locally and abroad as a travelling guest instructor in universities, dance festivals and traditional schools. She also acts as guest performer and judge for competitions and conventions throughout Europe. Every summer she embarks on a US Tour and returns to her hometown of Seattle. As a choreographer, Kim regularly collaborates with production companies in tv commercials for well-known brands including Nike, Heineken, Just Dance and many more as well as directing her dance troop “The KJC Booty Ambassadors.” For Kim, much of all human expression stems from our core and the manipulation of the gravitational muscles that work to maintain our equilibrium. These are the same forces that register alterations to our emotional state and thus generate meaning production. Since witnessing the magical transformation this area of her body underwent creating a life inside of her and birthing one, she has become fascinated with how these joints connect, understanding the articulations originating from them and exploring the power within them.

Student Feedback

"Kim was so welcoming and approachable. She has real enthusiasm for dance and her workshops and she's really inspiring. I enjoyed the body isolation most - I love to do this at home and now I have some extra positions to work on." Lynseyanne, Glasgow

“The whole thing was AMAZING! The history at the beginning was a really good idea. The best point is the way how Kim structured the whole workshop: warm up, booty dance, twerk, isolations and stretching. Everything was perfectly combined together.” ~Justyna, London

"Me atreví a bailar Booty Dance gracias a Kim Jordan que también es socióloga especializada en culturas y racismo, además de feminista; y pensé: ¡este es el twerk que quiero hacer! Me gusta porque tiene principios, te explica los orígenes del movimiento y te cuestiona el motivo por el cual lo bailas." Las Vvitch
