[16-Malpaso3by_NirArieli]The Cuban technique of modern dance is a fusion of North American Modern Dance (including (Sokolow), Graham, Limón, and Cunningham), European ballet, and traditional Afro-Cuban dances and rhythms. The central teaching of the class is based around contraction and release technique, combined with spine undulation movements from Afro-Cuban dance styles. The floor combinations encourage a focus on rhythm of and musicality. This combination of influences (American, European and Afro) manifested within Cuban dance will provide the students a unique transcultural experience of movement.

OSNEL DELGADO (Founder, Artistic Director and Choreographer) danced with Danza Contemporanea de Cuba from 2003 to 2011, before founding Malpaso. He has worked with choreographers Mats Ek, Rafael Bonachela, Kenneth Kvarnström, Ja Linkens, Itzik Galili, Samir Akika, Pedro Ruiz, Isidro Rolando and George Cespedes. Delgado has created works for DCC, Rakatan and Ebony Dance of Cuba. He is a 2003 graduate of the National Dance School of Havana, where he is also a professor of dance studies.
