Dancing woman


Dance performance by Juana Varela

Pre-Broken is a mind full of repeating sounds.

Pre-Broken is a race that rushes forward and backward.

Pre-Broken is a time before the present moment.

Juana Varela.

I started dancing in Villena at a very young age, surrounded by family and friends who always saw me as a spontaneous and cheerful dancer. Little by little, with that confidence and after a lot of wandering, I completed my classical and contemporary dance studies in Alicante, and later at the Conservatorio Superior de Valencia. I travelled a bit with the excuse of seeing at first-hand how the language of dance was in other countries.

Without realising it, in the most natural way dance became my mode of artistic expression, and as time went by I began to meet and experiment with other arts and other people who have made me continue to grow. This is how teaching and creation took on a very special meaning in 2003 when I began to form part of a beautiful dance project integrated in the school and company Moments Art in Valencia, a city in which the company La Coja Dansa also welcomed me as part of its family.

Once I was given an award, another day I became a mother. I have always been a woman of improvisation. A friend of music, dance and social relations, I let my hair down and started to work also with my voice together with the Penja'm Collective. Nowadays I create and perform -always in collaboration with other professionals- my own pieces, which gather worldly and universal aspects of the experiences and perceptions of this girl and woman who continues to travel between realities and fantasies of the present moment.
