Occupational demand in a family environment. For 20 years, this has been the main feature of Pamela Frank Art Spacelocated at Marconi 2.195, is Isidro Casanova, whose name coincides with that of Dancer and teacher from Matanzas Who directs it and the search for a balance between the two values has always been a guide for the institution and for creating a healthy artistic life for all who are part of it.
“The school was born in my youth with the desire to have a space for myself and for everyone who wanted dancing to be a part of their life. I have always said that the doors to this house were open because it is everyone’s home, and that is what makes it special. With this goal, I saw that the school never stopped growing, Because students have not stopped developing, and this has created a very happy path that has brought us to where we are now. A large percentage of those who started taking lessons 20 years ago, today, are part of a work team, or have their projects or technical careers with great success. Frank explained in an interview with 1 digital.
Within the institution, Pamela serves not only as general director, but also as professor of advanced contemporary jazz, educational project director (faculty), and choreographer for dance company uQbar (based in space). Whereas two decades ago she taught five students herself, now the staff consists of ten teachers who give lessons to 140 students belonging to different age groups and trained in different forms of artistic expression.
Regarding the challenges we face over time, he said, “The space was, at times, too small. The words he said to the students sometimes did not change their problems at home, and economic realities are usually a mental stopping point for those who want to express themselves artistically.” But everything, absolutely everything, can be solved when you do your work with sincerity, discipline and patience.
As a reminder, there are many events that hinged on the path of space, from its mass construction to its current evolution. Frank recounted some moments, for example, after winning a trip to New York to train with ten students in 2013, the start of the educational project – a replica of the teaching methodology of his school in 15 others inland – the start of a larger company, the works produced, and Recognition as a businessman of art in Lattanza.
“Dance transforms anyone who allows themselves to be transformed. This space for dance is a clear example of that for me. A space shaped by many lives, which changed the history of each of us we were a part of. I continue to process the feelings that move so powerfully within me, with the strength of the passion that made it all The dancer concluded that the school belongs to every student and teacher who inhabited it, and it was enchanted because everyone who stepped on that place allowed himself to be traversed by his energy.
