Professor and Choreographer of Samba in Nantes (group / individual lessons, workshop, Masterclass, EVJF, Show)

Methodology

My curiosity and my passion for dance led me to discover different artistic and musical universes and to learn several dances (West African dances, Oriental dances, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Samba No Pé) with teachers recognized in France and internationally. In 2010 I met La SAMBA which changed my perception of the body and dance. It is a dance that allows you to be reconciled with your body, a festive, joyful dance based mainly on feelings and exchange. All my artistic meetings allowed me to set up a pedagogy based on listening to the body, to find the right movement which will help you to develop or deepen your dance. My lessons are all levels, intergenerational, and mixed. Samba is a free dance, solo / duet or in a group, where each and everyone finds their place. My lessons take place in several stages: 1- Learning the basic step "SAMBA No Pé" which means foot samba, and the different techniques of this dance. 2- Learning specific samba codes (history, technical term, musical genres) 3- Creating a choreography or personal sequence

Background

Teacher / Dancer / Choreographer for 15 years, I work with different formations as well as communities. My experiences in Samba: - Master Class / Workshop Samba school Toque de Samba, La Roche Sur Yon Samba school Coração Do Brasil, Nantes Samba school Surdo'Rei, La Rochelle Ecole de Danse LATIN Studio, Paris Association Alegria, Angers Make a Move, Nantes - Soloist / group dancer: Ecole de Samba Alegria de Tours Samba School Flor Carioca, Nantes Bloco de Paris Cie Sorriso Do Brasil Grupo Amazonia de Nantes - Choreographer Cie Sorriso Do Brasil Samba School Surdo'Rei, La Rochelle Association Rewbhe in partnership with the Samba School Flor Carioca Nantes for their annual carnival

She marches past the Drums (percussion groups). Each year the school organizes a competition to elect its Queen. She is chosen on very specific criteria (her charisma, her sympathy, her grace and of course her samba no pe which must be in keeping with the rhythm of the drums). *** The muse inspires school.

Marlène est la Rolls Royce des profs de danse Afro! Elle sait nous transmettre son énergie de dingue ce qui rends les cours addictifs! Elle incarne les cultures afros par excellence de part sa manière de se mouvoir. Par son regard perfectionniste elle sait nous amener naturellement vers une aisance dans la maitrise de ces danses envoutantes Bref, je recommande vivement Marlène que j'admire, qui a une niake d'enfer et qui nous donne vraiment envie de transcender nos limites corporelles et découvrir des capacités meconnues auparavant. Belle personne en prime! Foncez et vibrez avec cette talentueuse et charmante artiste qui vous apprendra à bouger vos fesses comme jamais vous ne l'aviez soupçonné ...

Marlène est une professeure de danse expérimentée. J'ai suivi plusieurs de ses stages. Ces cours sont structurés et sa pédagogie est réfléchie, enrichie des différentes danses qu'elle maîtrise. Ses interventions sont adaptées aux groupes qui la sollicitent, elle est capable d'enseigner même si les niveaux sont hétérogènes. Elle est à l'écoute des attentes de ses élèves et arrive à cibler pour chacune les points à travailler, à améliorer, tout en nous mettant en confiance. C'est une des rares prof à travailler sur l'estime de soi, nous valoriser, nous permettre de prendre confiance en nous.
