Artist Philosophy

 

The work that I do requires a classically trained dancer with the ability and willingness to discover a visceral connection with the material while being present in the moment.
Beyond a traditional form of expression, I consider dance as a powerful tool to ignite dialogues across cultures, artistic disciplines and civic awareness. 

 

ABOUT 

Mr. Duran is currently a faculty member at the School of Ballet Arizona and is also a sought after coach and master teacher. His teaching philosophy includes an emphasis on basic alignment, and  the awareness of aesthetic lines. He focuses on developing dancers' attention to details while nurturing artistry and movement quality.  His professional training is Vaganova based and includes diverse curriculum applications which provide students with important tools needed by most dance-makers and professionals today

Originally from Barquisimeto-Venezuela, Mr. Duran is also an imaginative choreographer and a dynamic collaborator.  He studied at the Fundacion Arte Nuevo and danced professionally with several companies including the National Ballet of Caracas, Danzahoy, Tulsa Ballet Theatre and eight consecutive seasons with the Eugene Ballet Company.
