Carolina Bergonzoni

I'm a contemporary dancer. Classically trained, I am extremely versed in ballet, modern, different style of contemporary techniques, improvisation and contact. My personal research has being shaped and stimulated by the combination of day by day experiences and discoveries. I'm developing a work on a terrain between practice and theory -- my academic and artistic research directly influence each other.

In February 2015, I received a scholarship from EDAM, and I started a daily contemporary and contact technique's practice with Peter Bingham. Now, I cannot stop studying and exploring improvisation and CI dance.

I had the opportunity to learn from different disciplines and professionals dancers and choreographers; I studied dance from different perspective, as a dancer and as a scholar. Thanks to somatic techniques and Laban Movement Analysis's theory and studies, I could gain the ability to look at the body in motion in a deeper way. By understanding this model, I become everyday more and more aware of my body in its relationship with space, time, and others. My teaching and my dance follow the Laban framework. I am thankful for the teaching of Donna Redlick and Helen Walkley (Vancouver, CA), as well as the course for Dance Educator conducted by Franca Zagatti (Bologna, Italy). In 2016, I attended Donna Redlick's teacher intensive and I received a scholarship for WOW, a week intensive somatic based dance training with Jennifer Mascall. Watch me moving during one of Donna Redlick session of Bartenieff Fundamentals.

My contemporary dance classes combine different techniques and principles, such as: release, floor work, somatic techniques and yoga.
