Enzo Celli Aug 12, 2019 - Aug 16, 2019; Mon - Fri

4:00 PM - 6:00 PM


VIVO Ballet was founded in 2015 by Artistic Director, Enzo Celli, and General Manager of the VIVO Ballet Professional Training Center, Fulvio Pallisco. The team that launched VIVO Ballet was completed when Associated Artistic Director, Elisabetta Minutoli, and Communications Director, Marco Sabbatini later joined. The founding team established two entities: VIVO Ballet, a New York based dance company, and the VIVO Ballet Professional Training Center based in Rome.

Since its conception in 2015, VIVO Ballet has performed in international festivals in the USA, France, Portugal, Switzerland, and Italy. With roots in Rome, the company sprouted within the Professional Training Center and then located to a more permanent home in New York City.

In 2018 VIVO Ballet presents itself as New York based contemporary dance company with a complete cast of 10 dancers and with Kalinda Santor as Executive Director. VIVO Ballet is committed to producing and presenting American contemporary work that physicalizes the emotional ardor of the human experience. The company pursues this goal by offering accessibility to the performing arts not just as a physical attendance, but as a visceral experience.

Workshop Description

Full-week dancers will be considered for a full tuition scholarship to VIVO Ballet's Spring Intensive in Rome April 6-17.

Enzo Celli’s class investigates the concept of Nature Movement (the movement whose come from the nature). It will bring the dancer to express themselves, without changing the form to the movement, enriching the dance given by the choreographer with his own personality and emotions.

Starting from the study of nature’s movements, following three topics that relate with nature as humans movement, habit movement and animals movement, the class leads the dancer to a thorough study on the center and its fundamental relationship with the movement, creating a dynamic characterization by strong physicality and the relationship with the floor.

Enzo Celli explores the strong dynamics of working on the ground, investigating both the technical steps and fundamentals of European contemporary floorwork as assisted by and arising from personal development of the technique. The dance of the beast will improve not just your floorwork skills, but also your mobility, strength, endurance and power.

The Class investigates the creative moment of the dancer. It will bring the dancer to express themselves, without changing the form to the movement, enriching the dance given by the choreographer with his own personality and emotions. “The dance of the beast” is an innovative training for dancers that combines quadrupedal and ground-based movement with elements from contemporary dance to create a fun, challenging training emphasizing fluid movement.
