My name is Maria Naranjo. Just like you, I’ve been after this knowledge… for more than twenty years now! I’ve studied in different countries and contemporary dance schools (from small academies in my neighborhood to big universities like Paris VIII). Meanwhile, I’ve been a dancer, a choreographer, a teacher, a researcher…
My goal has always been to gather the tools, information and experience that would allow me to make a living out of dancing. Dance is my passion, dance is my life, dance is my enormous little secret (… bet you know what I mean!)
After all this years of research and work, I’m glad to share my understanding and professional experience with you. Please, make yourself at home… you are at contemporary-dance.org!
