ESTAMPA – Fusion of Movement
ESTAMPA-Fusion of Movement provides workshops and regular classes of traditional as well as a unique fusion of rhythms and dances of the African diaspora. Classes are taught with recorded music or live music whenever possible. These classes are modeled to meet the needs of the student, whether his/her purpose is to learn technique, to enhance physical awareness, to keep a healthy body, or to receive the therapeutic benefits of movement and its connection to music.
Clases and workshops are taught by Sabina Celeste and occasionally a guest teacher is invited to infuse us with more information. ESTAMPA also does dance, percussion, and theater performances in collaboration with other artists.
MILAGRO. Up to the observer`s own interpretation. An improvised collaborative effort.
Sabina Celeste found her niche in the drum and dance world of the African Diasporic rhythms when she was first exposed to Capoeira in 2005. Here, she learned the basics of this style of dance-fight, to play Berimbau, and to sing her heart out. For her, there is something about this symbiotic relationship between percussion, song, and dance that is so invigorating and healing. Her passion for these styles of art forms gave her the never-ending momentum to search for more. She was fortunate to travel to Cuba, Peru, Senegal, and Guinea to absorb cultures and rhythms, as well as to attend dance and music focused camps in the United States to learn from masters.
Sabina has performed in various dance and percussion groups influenced by West African, Brazilian, Cuban, and Congolese styles in California-USA, La Paz-Bolivia, and Berlin-Germany. She teaches traditional and original fusion dance classes and workshops wherever she might be, and loves to collaborate with other artists to create music/theatre/dance pieces. Sabina has a Bachelors degree in Theatre, Film, and Dance from Humboldt State University, Arcata, CA, USA.
