[Class] Afro Brazilian Dance (Yema) @ Ardour Academy | Wales | United Kingdom

Costs: £7


About Christina:

I am a Performance Artist and the Creative Director of Yema Dance, an Afro-Brazilian Dance Platform, based in Cardiff, South Wales.

In 2008, I started a degree in Performance Studies and Sceneography at Aberystwyth University. I then continued onto my Masters in Practising Performance and Theatre Studies.

I specialised in the connections between Ritual and Performance, basing my research on a dramaturgy known as, The Dance of the Orixá. An Afro-Brazilian Performer Training Technique created by the late Augusto Omolú.

My passion for the work took me to Brazil, where I partook in an intensive course and this gave me the groundings to start creating my own work. I fell completely in love with this form of Theatre Anthropology and love nothing more than to share it with others. To give back the happiness and joy I feel when I dance, The Dance of the Orixá.

Yema Dance is used as a platform, to introduce participants to these dance practises. To enable them to play, to create characters and to learn about discipline of training. To celebrate and to have fun. To work with differing energies, intensities, gradients, speed and depth of action. This platform is a learning space and one that I am looking forward to sharing with all of you!

Random fact about myself- I am obsessed with WWE. I have been since I was about seven years old and my hero is Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart!

[Class] Swing with Jessie Brooks @ Ardour Acacdemy
Nov 25 @ 8:30 pm – 10:00 pm
[Class] Swing with Jessie Brooks @ Ardour Acacdemy | United Kingdom

Jessie discovered the world of swing dancing while living in Toronto in 2010 and hasn’t stopped swingin’ out since! Having previously competed in Ballroom and Latin, she was drawn to the unbridled joy of Lindy Hop and swears by its’ ability to bring sunshine into people’s lives. No matter where she dances in the world, she’s yet to find a swing dancer that doesn’t have a big smile on their face.

“My favourite thing about social swing dancing is watching people lose themselves in those few minutes on a dance floor: in that moment, nothing else matters except the music and their connection with their partner.” Jessie loves to help people discover the power of connecting with another person through dance and takes great enjoyment in nurturing new dancers’ journey into the exciting world of swing. Her teaching approach is firmly rooted in the belief that we learn best when we’re having fun!

When she’s not dancing, you’ll find Jessie setting fire to all manner of things in the name of learning in her role as a Science Communicator, performing interactive shows for schools in South Wales.
