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."
Kymberlee Jay - high performance coach, ex professional dancer and Nike athlete on 'Dreamer's Games'
“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!"
Jimmy Brixton - music artist, videographer, artistic director
"take a wild card and make it your own, dance away your insanity...
'cos we all have a piece of it inside"
"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."

"when may i play so freely,
that the clock doesn't tick, it observes"
Our approach as dance artists and teachers is strongly influenced by hip hop styles and street dance culture, embracing the power of exploration, community and exchange.
Our practice includes hip hop and street dance styles, contemporary dance (release, floor-work technique, improvisation), creativity development and devising.
Our core values are curiosity, ownership, creativity and effort.
What we do, how we do it and why:
Give students ownership & responsibility - supporting them to lead their own practice and practice making choices towards their goals
Create a space that embraces different levels, abilities and goals
Nurture curious, resourceful individuals
A focus on foundations and learning to learn from everything: we help students build a strong foundation of technique, understanding vs memorising; effort and intention, whilst nurturing their creativity and individuality
Understanding the history and background behind the movement
A supportive, open & fun environment
We deliver group classes and tailored workshops, as well as one-to-one tuition for students from all levels and backgrounds, in different settings from dance schools, colleges, community centres, charity and corporate events.
Since November 2021, our co-founder Marta is a certified Rambert Grades teacher for grades 1-8. Get in touch if you are interested in offering the curriculum (with or without exam option) to your students.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY
“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."
