Interview with WDM Faculty Member Igal Perry. / Intervista con l’Insegnante del WDM, Igal Perry.

***SCROLLA IN BASSO PER LEGGERE IN ITALIANO***

Igal Perry , founder of Peridance Capezio Center and of Peridance Contemporary Dance Company will teach ballet at World Dance Movement Italy, WEEK 3: July 23-28. You can still register @ www.WDMItaly.com

We asked Igal some very interesting questions about World Dance Movement and dance in general. Check out his interview!

1010574_10151521512793460_2134796498_n

WDM: What can students expect from your class at WDM?

Igal Perry: Students can expect to receive personal attention and guidance that is specifically directed to their individual needs. Students can also expect to deal with phrasing, musicality and focus, in addition to technical elements of Ballet. The class utilizes purity for Ballet technique with an easy-to-understand approach, and has also been made suitable is for contemporary dancers.

WDM: At WDM, over $75,000 will be assigned thanks to our amazing sponsors, including 6 Peridance Capezio Center, one month-long scholarships and 1 certificate program (full year). These scholarships will be awarded by all WDM faculty members while observing students in class. What are the things you will look for in order to choose the winners?
Igal Perry: When granting scholarships I always look for dancers who are sincere and committed in their dancing. I also look for the dancer’s capacity to learn, be open to new ideas and be flexible in their approach to different elements in dance. I observe and look for talent, musicality, and passion.
WDM: What kind of advice would you give to a student who doesn’t have “the perfect body” for dancing?
Igal Perry: In my mind there is no limitation to what you can achieve, even without the perfect conditions.. the most important thing is for dancers to be committed and prepared to work hard, especially if they need to overcome any limitations, physical or otherwise.
Igal_Perry
WDM: In your opinion, what are the most common mistakes dancers make when trying to enter the professional dance world?
Igal Perry: Many dancers obsess about showing and developing their technical abilities but often tend to forget — that in order to be a really successful performer — they need to demonstrate good communication skills, tolerance, good manners, respect and charisma. This is particularly important during auditions and the hiring process. In addition, when hired for a professional Company, dancers tend to stop training, which affects their physical as well as emotional ability to deal with the high demands and stress of being a professional dancer. The best dancers I know train until the very last days of their professional careers.
WDM: If you had to describe World Dance Movement – The International Workshop with 3 words what would they be?
Igal Perry: Energy, Education, Experience.

***ITALIANO***

Igal Perry , fondatore del Peridance Capezio Center (NYC) e della Peridance Contemporary Dance Company insegnerà danza classica al World Dance Movement Italy, la TERZA SETTIMANA: 23-28 Luglio. Potete registrarvi su www.WDMItaly.com

Abbiamo fatto alcune domande molto interessanti a Igal riguardo il World Dance Movement e la danza in generale. Non perdetevi questa intervista!

WDM: Cosa si possono aspettare gli studenti dalla tua lezione al World Dance Movement?

Igal Perry: Gli studenti possono aspettarsi di ricevere un’attenzione e una guida individuali sulla base delle loro necessità specifiche. Avranno a che fare con il fraseggio, la musicalità e il focus, oltre agli elementi tecnici della Danza Classica. La lezione utilizza la purezza della tecnica della Danza Classica con un approccio facile da comprendere ed è adatta anche a ballerini di danza contemporanea.

WDM: Al World Dance Movement saranno assegnati circa $75.000 in borse di studio grazie ai nostri straordinari sponsor. Il Peridance Capezio Center, assegnerà 6 borse di studio di un mese e un Certicate Program della durata di 1 anno. Le borse di studio saranno assegnate da tutti gli insegnanti del WDM osservando gli studenti durante le lezioni. Quali sono gli elementi che valuterai per decidere i vincitori?

Igal Perry: Quando assegno delle borse di studio, cerco sempre dei ballerini che siano sinceri e completamente impegnati nella propria danza. Noto anche la capacità dell’allievo di imparare, di essere aperto a nuove idee e essere flessibile nel proprio approccio a diversi elementi della danza. Osservo e cerco il talento, la musicalita, e la passione.

WDM: Quale consiglio daresti ad uno studente che non ha il “corpo perfetto” per danzare?

Igal Perry: Nella mia testa non c’è nessun limite riguardo a quello che un ballerino può riuscire a fare, anche senza le migliori condizioni. La cosa più importante per i ballerini è quella di impegnarsi al massimo e prepararsi a lavorare duramente, specialmente se devono superare dei limiti fisici o anche di altro genere.

Igal

WDM: Secondo te, quali sono gli errori più comuni che i ballerini fanno quando tentano di entrare  nel mondo della danza professionale? 

Igal Perry: Molti ballerini sono ossessionati dall’idea di dover mostrare e sviluppare le loro abilità tecniche, dimenticando molto spesso che  per essere veramente degli artisti di successo, devono dimostrare anche buone capacità di comunicazione, tolleranza, buone maniere, rispetto e carisma. Questi elementi sono ancora più importanti durante le audizioni e nel processo di assunzione. Inoltre, una volta entrati in compagnie professioniste, i ballerini tendono spesso a smettere di studiare, e questo influenza in maniera negativa la loro condizione fisica e anche le abilità espressive necessarie per affrontare le grandi espettative e lo stress delle essere un ballerino professionista. I migliori ballerini sanno che hanno bisogno di studiare fino all’ultimo giorno della loro carriera professionale.

WDM: Se dovessi descrivere il World Dance Movement  con 3 parole, quali sarebbero?

Igal Perry: Energia, Istruzione, Esperienza.
