Raymond Roa Alonso
Colonize no more: hips don’t lie

Exploring the historical landscape through social body mapping, my practice focuses on decolonizing the body as a starting point. I draw inspiration from both anatomical, imagined spaces and Icons.

Ray’s expertise stems from his extensive choreographic research, which he will bring to the forefront as he guides you through an exploration of advanced principles such as agility, weight, and focus.

Throughout the class, you will engage in movement combinations that challenge your fluidity and transitions, while simultaneously refining your spatial awareness. Ray’s choreographic explorations, some of which are score-based, guide a transformative experience, where the pelvis serves as a catalyst for your movement journey. Unlock its potential as a starting point,enabling you to develop a deeper understanding of movement originating from your center.

The classes are held at KU.BE, Dirch Passers Allé 4, 2000 Frederiksberg in studio: Zen 1.

How to get there?
Zen 1 is located on third floor, please use the backstairs to access the studio.
Go in via the main entrance on first floor, keep going straight ahead towards the changing rooms next to the climbing area on the first floor, open the door in the far end and go up the stairs until you arrive on the third floor. Zen 1 is through the door on your right side.

Accessibility requires a little extra preparation. The studios are equipped for wheelchair users. It is possible to use the lift for access up to the 3rd floor. If you wish to use this, please let us know in advance, as the studio you have to go through via the lift is sometimes booked.
We kindly ask you to meet up 15 minutes prior to class, so there is time for “self check in” with your QR code on the ticket.
