IT Dansa

IT Dansa

 Artistic Director: Catherine Allard

www.institutdelteatre.org 

IT Dansa is the young dance company of the Theatre School. Founded on 30 June 1997, it was included in the framework of the Theatre School's post-graduate dance course.

With a maximum of 14 young dancers, it works on perfecting the art and technique of young students as a formula for future professional practice, providing an ideal platform for future dancers and talented young choreographers to gain knowledge for the future. There is also the option of giving opportunities to young choreographers with talent. IT Dansa now includes eighteen scholarship dancers selected by public audition

During the two years that make up the post-graduate course, shows are produced at a professional level, performed by a young dance company in the theatre circuit and designed as a standard practice for post-graduates. This helps them to work and think like professionals. To develop their personalities, and acquire fluency in movement, to possess another dimension of the body in space.

The working method of the course is comparable to the usual working methodology of professional dance companies: classes of classical and contemporary technique, with prestigious teachers, rehearsal of choreographies with different authors, and the presentation of the end result at different drama venues. The artistic programme is previously defined and conceived for the education of dancers and performers, offering them a wide range of both contemporary and neo-classical choreographic styles. So far, IT Dansa has premiered 22 choreographies that have given company members the opportunity to work with well known choreographers and with new dance talents. Great choreographers who have formed part of the company's repertoire include: Jirí Kylián, Ohad Naharin, Rui Horta, Nacho Duato, Ramon Oller and Toni Mira

Once they have attended the post-graduate course, the dancers are prepared for entry to national and international companies, with the required experience and enthusiasm. Indeed, more than 80% of our past students have received a professional contract immediately after completing their education with companies such as Lanònima Imperial, Metros, Nederlands Dans Theater (The Netherlands), Ballet Víctor Ullate (Madrid), Verpommer Theatre (Germany), Euregio Staatstheater am Gämeplatz (Germany), el Ballet Gulbenkian (Portugal), Abcdance Company (Austria) and Companhia do Bailado (Portugal).

Season highlights

During this new season, IT Dansa will continue its collaboration with renowned choreographers.
As a first step, Cayetano Soto, who danced with the company 25 years ago, will remake for IT Dansa dancers Twenty eight thousand waves, a piece originally created in 2014 for Ballet BC in Vancouver. Then, Gustavo Ramírez Sansano will present Lo que no se ve, which will be his fourth creation for the Barcelona-based company. Both pieces will be presented on the same evening, 21 January 2022 in Granollers (Spain). The Prom by Lorena Nogal and Kaash by Akram Khan will complete the programme.
In February 2022, the company will perform again in Barcelona, as part of the Dansa Ara artistic diffusion project, and later as part of the family and young audience programme at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona.
