In its 18th year, the Bailando Dance Festival brings a premiere modern dance performance to Corpus Christi by showcasing world-renowned dance artists. This year, they welcome Ballet Austin, Imago Danza from Costa Rica, NobleMotion from Houston and Ad Deum.
Dance enthusiasts have celebrated the diversity that modern dance brings since Martha Graham burst on the scene with her innovative choreography at the beginning of the 20th century. Her pioneering vision created a movement that has inspired generations of choreographers to create a language through the human body’s movement.
Never experienced modern dance? Bailando Dance Festival is a great opportunity to see (and learn) modern dance.
Here are 3 reasons why you need to experience this modern dance extravaganza in Corpus Christi.
1. The Beauty Expressed in Raw Human Emotion
All great art holds up a mirror to the artist’s soul. Modern dance has as much to do with acting and exposing the inner workings of human emotions as it does with the precision of dance.
2. The Connection That Humans Create With Each Other Through Movement
Witnessing the beautify of two or more individual forces that one are on their own and then converge into a mutual space and become one syncopated work of art.
3. Appreciation For What the Human Form is Capable of Creating
The sheer control, force and speed that the choreography of modern dance demands on the human body is amazing to witness. The athleticism alone of these dancers is powerful to observe.
