Welcome to Mabel Rivero's web site
Dance is one of the most ancient forms of expression and communication practised by mankind. Portrayed by bodily movements and gestures, but without the necessity of the spoken word, the powerful language of dance has evolved. Since their emergence on Earth, human beings have used dance to manifest their desires, feelings, beliefs and concerns, moving naturally without rules and techniques. Throughout time, this pure language, devoid of technique and styles, has diversified according to social, political, religious and cultural influences. Nowadays, as a result of this process, there exists a rich variety of dance forms.
I would like to invite you as a visitor to my website to accompany me on my academic journey throughout the worlds of classical and contemporary dance, and my traditional roots in popular dance: so diverse, yet so close in many of their aspects.
