Jean Abreu’s classes focus on using the body as a tool to articulate human emotions, memories and experiences. Jean considers the body as the holder of the key to who we are and how we feel, offering us a channel and primal universal language which we can communicate with, opening up endless possibilities of translating our inner sensations, processing information and connecting with others. His classes as well as technique focus on the thinking and decision-making process that accompanies movement. His methodology encourages dance artists to search for movement impulses that are urgent and necessary, for a body that is present.

“I seek to inspire people to move freely and most of all, the ability to generate movement themselves based on an emotional response and framework. What fascinates me is the thinking processes, the trying, the concentration, the focus and the pursuit of solving a problem with the body, therefore the person behind the body.” Jean Abreu
