10 Jan

*** SCORRI IN BASSO PER LEGGERE IN ITALIANO ***

CLARISSA_MUCCI.pngWDM: What advice would you give to a dancer about auditioning?

Clarissa: Other than great training, students need to have a 360-degree look into the dance industry because there is only ONE dance. There is not a “good” type of dance a “bad” type of dance. Having said that, I do want to stress the importance of Ballet. It is fundamental and the first part of all auditions is a ballet class, from Teatro alla Scala to Pina Bausch.
WDM: What advice would you give to a dancer who was told “you don’t have the right body to be a classical ballet dancer”? 
Clarissa: Dance needs talent, dynamics, musicality, good technique, but also needs an harmonic and proportionate body. Unfortunately, after teenage years, dancers watch their bodies change. Sometimes this can limit a dancer’s career on stage in the classical ballet world, but dance will still have formed the dancer both physically and mentally providing them with the opportunity to be a brilliant teacher (if they study to become one). Not all great dancers can become great teachers. My university, where I have been teaching for over 36 years, has courses for both teachers and choreographers.

WDM: Do you remember your first dance teacher?
Clarissa: My first teacher was Lia Calizza, a woman who gave me so much, both technically and on a personal level. She was sweet and understanding, but also very demanding. I still thank her for what she gave me.
WDM: How do you motivate and stimulate your students?
Clarissa: I love my students, they motivate me with their work and dedication. I always remind them that when working you always need to have the humility to learn and the honesty to recognize your capabilities. I love honest work and students who work hard every day to become better than the previous day. I love Artists, those with a dancing soul, those who can move you with a Port de Bras. A Port de Bras never lies.

Oggi abbiamo il piacere di presentarvi un’intervista che abbiamo fatto con l’insegnante del World Dance Movement, Clarissa Mucci che insegnerà Danza Classica al WDM Italy: SETTIMANA 2: 16-21 Luglio.

Buona lettura!

WDM: Che consiglio daresti ad un danzatore per le audizioni? 

Clarissa: Dopo una buona formazione, lo studente deve aprire lo sguardo nel mondo lavorativo a 360 gradi, perché la Danza è UNA e non esiste quella di serie A e quella di serie B. Mi preme però ricordare che la Danza Classica è la base e che in tutte le audizioni. La prima prova è la lezione di classico, dal Tatro alla Scala alla compagnia di Pina Bausch. 

12625821_10208374133253057_822450876_n

WDM: Cosa consiglieresti ad uno studente al quale è stato detto che non ha “il corpo adatto” per essere un danzatore classico? 

Clarissa: Un buon danzatore classico ha bisogno di talento, una dinamica, un’ottima musicalità e una buona tecnica. Ha bisogno di una bella figura, armonica e proporzionata.

Ragazzi/e dopo l’adolescenza, vedono cambiare e trasformare il proprio corpo. Questo purtroppo può creare un limite alla carriera professionale, ma sicuramente la Danza avrà educato nel fisico e nella mente, un futuro spettatore, critico di danza e dopo un percorso di studi metodologici, un futuro Insegnante. Non sempre un Ottimo Danzatore diventerà un Ottimo insegnante. Nella mia Accademia dove lavoro da 36 anni, abbiamo i corsi universitari per Insegnanti e Coreografi. 

WDM: Ricordi la tua prima insegnante di danza? 

Clarissa: La mia prima insegnante si chiama Lia Calizza, una donna che mi ha dato molto, sia sotto il profilo tecnico, ma soprattutto sotto il profilo umano. Era dolce e comprensiva ma molto esigente e ancora oggi la ringrazio per tutto quello che mi ha dato.

12571412_10208373985729369_840735546_n

WDM: Come motivi e stimoli i tuoi studenti?

Clarissa: Io amo molto i miei studenti, sono loro che motivano me, con il loro lavoro e la loro dedizione. Io ricordo loro che nel lavoro bisogna aver sempre l’Umiltà di imparare e l’onestà di riconoscere le proprie possibilità. Amo il lavoro Onesto e gli studenti che ogni giorno, lavorano per conquistare un risultato migliore del giorno passato. Amo gli artisti, quelli con un anima danzante, quelli che mi emozionano con un Port de bras. Il port de bras non mente Mai.

* SCROLLA  IN BASSO PER LA TRADUZIONE IN ITALIANO *

Chances are, everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer.  We all know what the pink ribbon stands for, what the yellow Livestrong bracelet represents, and that we can keep donating to various causes for a cure.  A new cancer initiative, something most people are still unaware of, is the pink tutu.

The pink tutu is an icon for Bob Carey’s The Tutu Project.  It all began as a silly game, but soon after Bob’s wife was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of breast cancer, he realized he could truly go somewhere with his idea.

The Tutu Project™  is a collection of images of Bob photographed in a pink tutu, soon to be bound into a book, titled “Ballerina”.  It shares entertaining stories about his adventures in a pink tulle. Initially  the pictures gave Bob and his wife Linda something to laugh about during their difficult time. Now they have become much more!!!

“Ballerina” has received nothing but praise from people who see the collection of photos.  Because of this, Bob wants to share the book with other people in order to raise money to help women affected by breast cancer.  He will self-publish “Ballerina” in the fall, and the net proceeds will go directly to breast cancer organizations, including CANCERcare and the Beth Israel Department of Integrative Medicine Fund. His goal is to make a difference in the lives of women with breast cancer and their loved ones.

È molto probabile che oggigiorno, purtroppo, ognuno di noi conosca una persona che è stata  affetta dal cancro. Tutti quanti conosciamo il significato del nastro rosa o del braccialetto giallo “Livestrong”, e che è possibile donare a diverse associazioni che si occupano di ricerca per la cura del cancro. Una nuova iniziativa, di cui pochi sono ancora venuti a conoscenza, è quella del tutù rosa.

Il tutù rosa è l’icona del progetto The Tutu Project di Bon Carey. Tutto iniziò come un gioco, ma dopo che alla moglie di Bob fu diagnosticata una forma di cancro al seno molto aggressiva, Bon si rese conto che poteva davvero realizzare qualcosa d’importante con il suo progetto.

The Tutu Project è una raccolta di fotografie di Bob con un tutù rosa, che presto saranno raccolte in un libro intitolato Ballerina”. Nel libro sono presentate foto divertenti delle avventure di un uomo che veste  con un tulle rosa. Sono le foto che riuscivano a far ridere Bob e la moglie durante il periodo difficile del cancro ma ora sono diventate molto di più!!!

“Ballerina” ha ricevuto complimenti da tutti coloro che hanno visto la collezione di fotografie, per questo Bob ha pensato di condividere il suo libro con la comunità per raccogliere  fondi per aiutare altre donne affette dal cancro al seno. Il libro uscirà in autunno e sarà pubblicato in maniera autonoma. I proventi andranno direttamente ad associazioni che si occupano di ricerca sul cancro al seno, tra cui cancercare.org e Beth Israel Department of Integrative Medicine Fund. Il suo obiettivo è quello di fare la differenza nella vita di donne affette dal cancro al seno e delle loro famiglie.

L’obiettivo di Bob è quello di raggiungere $75.000. Per contribuire alla sua causa, visita il sito del Tutu Project e contribuisci a  supportare il progetto. Tutte le donazioni sono importanti, non importa la cifra!
