The work that I do requires a classically trained dancer with the ability and willingness to discover an integral connection with the teaching or choreographic 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.
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 including diverse curriculum applications, which provide students with the tools needed by most dance-makers and professionals today.
Originally from Barquisimeto-Venezuela, Mr. Duran is also an imaginative choreographer and a dynamic collaborator.
