The Silvestre Dance Technique is a contemporary Brazilian dance expression created by world-renowned teacher and choreographer Rosangela Silvestre. This unique yet classically based form incorporates the four elements of nature, the chakra system, and the three triangles of the body. Symbology is the Silvestre Technique’s utilization of the gestures of the Orixa dances in combination with the Silvestre Technique. A study of African Brazilian traditional symbols within the choreography, and how to work with the Silvestre Technique creatively. Together they provide the expression and interpretation of the exercises with the objective of conditioning the body, mind, and spirit for dance, of any form.
