ABOUT THE NADINE BOMMER METHOD
The Nadine Bommer Method is a two-part technique offering dancers a step-by-step process to create a uniquely personal movement language. The process pairs the freedom of postmodernism and rigor of ballet for full control of fluid, malleable and expansive movement. Engaging the artist’s endless creativity, the movement is used to build enchanting characters within imaginative stories. Both aspects of the method, the body (Kinetica) and the character (Animato), use kinetic energy and internal listening to uncover the full expressive capabilities of the body. Nadine has built a diverse body of repertoire including fun-filled family programming with this unique movement language inspired by the sea.
The company offers workshops and a 6-month training program in the Nadine Bommer Method. Offering students a technical process to find honesty and depth within the body, it is applicable to any performative career and is currently taught in 15 Israeli dance schools, including the Kibbutzim College of Education Dance Theatre.
