Training for Dancers
The choreographer, dancer and dance teacher Chaim Gebber completed his dance education in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Since 1992, he has worked as a choreographer for various Brazilian Dance companies and received numerous awards. His first work “Pressagios da Loucura” (1993) has been awarded as best choreography by UNESCO and CIDC (Conseil International de la Danse, Paris). His choreographic work has been shown in Asia, Brazil and Europe. Besides his work as a choreographer, Chaim Gebber also operates internationally in Dance companies and theaters as workshop leader. He works in Berlin since 2005 as a freelance dancer, choreographer and dance teacher.
In 2003, Chaim started to develop his dance training system “The Conscious Body”. With prepared combinations allied to improvisation techniques that consider the personal/individual body structure and speed, “The Conscious Body” allows dancers/movers to work precisely and individually while respecting their own needs. By placing an emphasis on floor work, we will be working with combinations to gain power and speed. We will work with effective and logical moving sequences that awaken the consciousness of weight shifting. By growing the knowledge of body structures and weight shifting, the complexity of the movement sequences are gradually culminating.
