The University of Choreosophy (UC) opened in 2017 as a new central pole of the Danza Duende community, thus joining the evolution of a project that has been bearing fruits for 13 years.
The Danza Duende community, or Danza Duende International Network, was created by Yumma Mudra in 2004. A nomad, “dancer of life”, producer, author, teacher and choreographer, Danza Duende is the result of her own artistic and humanist research through dance. Since then, we have witnessed the growing throughout the last thirteen years of an intensive laboratory, an international collective, a sort of "artistic family".
The Danza Duende Network can be somewhat considered as pioneer in what we call the Conscience of the Interdependence of all things, especially applied to the framework of art and creativity. This creativity is channeled through a communal discovery of the intrinsic human basic wisdom, to the benefit of each particular being and for society in general.
A change in the name of what was formerly known as Danza Duende International School became necessary, since through time Danza Duende has mainly come to comprehend a community of dancers, of artists, or otherwise researchers, in a path which is both solitary and solidary (the Danza Duende International Network), while Choreosophy is a term that describes specifically the tools of the school, which embrace the wisdom (sophia) of the dance (chore).
The University of Choreosophy (U.C.) proposes a flexible dynamic between
3 Cycles, which take place in three consecutive years.
