Ms. Silvestre has acquired training in such diverse dance techniques as: Martha Graham, Limón, Horton, Dunham and classical ballet, as well as traditional dances of Africa and other continents. In 1981, Ms. Silvestre started to travel in and out of Brazil to teach, to train dancers, to perform, to lecture, demonstrate, and consult, and to attend seminars and residencies in diverse universities. She now travels the globe full-time with this work.

Student’s Full Name:

Rosangela will teach classes in two different dance styles:
Orixa Dance Movement
A dance form based in the traditional Brasilian movements and rhythms of the Orixa (Orisha); deities that represent difference facets of nature.
Silvestre Technique
The Silvestre Technique is a continuously evolving contemporary dance technique with the objective of conditioning the dancer through physical and expressive training – regardless of level or previous experience. In 1982, Rosangela Silvestre began the early stages of developing the Silvestre Technique, which over time has progressed into a series of exercises – “conversations with the body” – working to prepare body, mind, and spirit for dance.
Classes are accompanied by live music. A series of musical compositions are created based on the conversation between the body and the orchestration of diverse musical instruments, the music of the body, and most importantly the silence that connects us all. With the inspiration that guides us, we can discover how to create dance and music constantly. All levels are welcomed and encouraged to train in this technique.

Ages 8+, All levels welcome.
