Miami Summer Intensive 2022

With a new location… VALLETO is excited to bring the summer intensive to MIAMI!

VALLETO summer intensive is a physical two-week training workshop designed for dancers who wish to grow their techniques, connect with new communities and be in a creative process. It includes techniques such as floorwork, ballet, dance theater, partnering, improvisation, and flying low taught by invited guest artists and Valeria Gonzalez. In addition, it includes a creative process with choreographer Valeria Gonzalez that will culminate in a performance project open to the public on the last day of the intensive.

Valeria’s process involves contemporary dance methods, acting, conversation, journaling, mentoring, meditation and more.

Guest artists to be announced!

Participants must be 18 years old or more by the date of the workshop.

"I found the effects of the intensive even weeks later, rewiring my brain into new ways of thinking and appreciating both myself and the people around me. Experiencing and communicating constantly with the other individuals was more powerful than I realized at the time."

"Working with VALLETO has been a source of rich, inquisitive stimulation that has opened my mind to what might be possible for the future of collaboration, art, and movement. As the world adapts to the “new normal” everywhere we turn, it gives me hope that movers across the globe have not lost the desire to exercise their creative and physical muscles, finding ways to keep the spirit of dance alive. I am inspired by this team of artists, and I have been reminded that movement has the power to heal us all and this is what unites us. I was drawn to VALLETO for their genuine efforts to amplify female-identifying voices, and give them a place where they feel liberated, supported, and ready to take risks. Every day I am examining what it means to unapologetically be myself, and I feel I am getting closer to the answer through this collaboration with VALLETO."

"I never expected to be a part of something so real. The environment we have created in VALLETO has allowed me to experience this entire process with honesty and to give full-bodied attention to the work, to the cast, and to myself."

"Working with Valleto is always intense. Val is an intense person herself, and she embraces this part of her in her work. Her deep connection to her sexuality and her mission to unleash the inner sexual demon we all have in us allows a unique experience to shine through. Working with Val makes you realize you’re more badass than you know. She does this with incredible finess and ease, like she was made to bring about kings, queens and majestic beings in the world through her wild mind and incredibly emotional workshopping. Valleto is otherworldly."

"I feel like I grew so much from this intensive, not just as a dancer, but as a human being. We really pushed ourselves physically, but I always felt safe and supported. Everybody involved was able to tap into this really beautiful vulnerability and have the support of everybody in the room. Those moments are so magical because it is so rare and truthful. You feel safe to take risks and push beyond your limits because you know everybody is there for you."
