WORK TOGETHER

  CHOREOGRAPHY & MOVEMENT DIRECTION

We tell your story and vision in a unique way to keep your audience engaged and inspired beyond show time. 

 

We choreograph and direct movement for performance -live, digital & promo.

We create dance and movement based stories that respond to everyday stimuli and seek to open ourselves and our audience to experience things and people in kinder, more curious ways.

As we 'forget what is', we find new ways to explore, look at things, respond and create movement works that connect and move you.

"A captivating video performance by twins Leah and Marta Valverde - exploring how movement can create and communicate freedom, especially poignant during a time where the boundaries of freedom in our society are being re-examined.

 

This piece is both beautifully structured and open to interpretation, allowing the viewer to determine for themselves where the confines of expression truly lay.

 

The movement is effortless, and yet emotive. The narrative is simple, and yet gripping. A great piece by two choreographers with a bright future in dance and the performance arts world."

“I’ve been working with Leah and Marta for years now and it’s always a pleasure. They are very professional, knowledgeable and have a great work ethic! We’ve worked on dance routines and movement for some of my music videos and these have been some true highlights for me.

 

They both have a very down to earth yet efficient approach. Highly recommend working with them!"

"I co-choreographed and performed a 10min contemporary dance piece with Marta in November 2018. Marta is a dedicated and highly versatile artist (dancing, drawing, writing, video editing). She managed to merge her style into our hybrid piece and thereby pushed the boundaries of our creation.

 

Her keen attention to detail gave the piece its unique flavour. Her authenticity and kindness make her a unique dance partner that I highly recommend." ​

less cautious,

that the clock doesn't tick, it observes"

  EDUCATION

 

Our classes are a space for exchange and growth, to enhance everyone’s ability to be creative, to move and to express.

We are committed to passing on the culture behind the dance, as we learnt it from our teachers, some of them pioneers in their style like Junior Almeida and Angel Pioneer.

 

Our love for dance comes from recognising that dance is a practice rooted in community, exchange and play.  To find what can makes us tick as individuals, finding a connection to music and to each other, exploring our own artistry and growing in our expression, creativity, curiosity and vulnerability. 

We focus on foundations, technique and drills in addition to devising, choreography and performance technique, as we believe these are key tools for both students and professionals to build on their movement vocabulary and understanding, and to develop their own artistry and style. 

We deliver group classes and tailored workshops as well as one-to-one tuition for students from all levels and backgrounds in many different settings from dance schools, colleges, community centres, charity and corporate events.

 

Our students range from those new to dance to professionals, young students (11 y.o.) to adults (including over 50’s).

We teach hip hop and street dance styles sessions and contemporary dance based workshops for students who want to dive into devising, improvisation technique and finding their creativity through movement.

“Being able to feel the flow of the musical movement connection and having better tools to really embody that is finally coming together.

I very much appreciate to be engaging with so much nuance and detail. So many things I always wanted to learn or understand."
