Angélique Willkie's technique class uses sensations of weight, space, contact with the floor, and efficient muscular effort to facilitate movement and aims to develop the support from the spine and the pelvis in both alignment and dynamic impulse. The isolation and weight of various body parts, openness of the joint articulations, and the relationship to the floor are used as the stimuli for movement. The class seeks to encourage the dancer to take advantage of the physical energy and momentum that is naturally created in, and by the body during movement.
Recently re-located back to Montreal after over 25 years in Europe, Angélique Willkie is a performer, singer, dramaturg and pedagogue. She has taught contemporary technique to companies, schools and festivals including ImpulsTanz (Vienna), Henny Jurriens Stichting (Amsterdam), SEAD (Salzburg),P.A.R.T.S. (Brussels), Wim Vandekeybus / Ultima Vez (Brussels), Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique, Ecole Nationale du Cirque and Ecole de danse contemporaine de Montreal (Montreal), among others. After 8 years at École Supérieure des Arts du Cirque (ESAC) in Brussels as teacher and dramaturgical advisor to the students and Pedagogical Coordinator of the school under GérardFasoli, Angélique is now full-time faculty in the Department of Contemporary Dance of Concordia University. Angélique continues to work as a dramaturg for dance-, music- and circus-theatre productions in both Montreal and Europe.
