Angela Towler, appointed contemporary teacher at the Royal Ballet School and former rehearsal director of Rambert will be coming live online from London. She will be teaching work by the well known Spanish choreographer Rafael Bonachela.
Angela will give you inside in use of music and how personality and dancing online might influence each move you make.
Bonachela is artistic director of the Sydney Dance Company in Sydney, Australia. As a choreographer, Rafael has been commissioned to make works for Candoco, George Piper Dances, ITDANSA Danza, Contemporanea de Cuba, Transitions Dance Company and Dance Works Rotterdam amongst others.
Rafael Bonachela’s internationally recognised talent has seen him work not only with contemporary dance at the highest level but also with artists from popular culture, such as Kylie Minogue, Tina Turner, Sarah Blasko and Katie Noonan as well as leading fashion designers Dion Lee and Toni Maticevski.
In 2008, Rafael premiered his first full-length production 360° for Sydney Dance Company. Less than six months later, he was appointed Artistic Director making headlines around the dance world. read full biography here
“Dance brings people together. Beyond the language we speak, beyond where we come from around the world, we all understand the body.”– Bonachela
The workshop includes balletclasses. Body and muscles must be throughly warmed up to be able to enjoy and understand how classical and contemporary technique come together in company repertoire.
