Teachers

Jean-Sebastian Rampazzi

"The choreographic world of Jean-Sebastien Rampazzi has no boundaries. Although he initially was from the more traditional school of argentine tango, he now never ceases to open up new avenues and to incorporate his dance, with constant research, into a vast framework: that is one of contemporary dance.Impossible to label him, he uses skill to reveal his sensitivity. The apparent simplicity and ease of his powerful dance form is equaled only by his fluid movements. His creativity is renewed by the unending desire for new challenges. When he produces a show, one can only be bewitched and inspired by the intensity of his commitment. Jean-Sebastien Rampazzi is recognized worldwide as a dancer, naturally, but also as an excellent teacher. He knows how to communicate his musicality, transmit his technique and to infuse others with his explosive energy. In an unfailing way, his generosity also has no limit. JSR is regularly on tour in the USA and Canada (Montreal, San Francisco,New York, Washington DC...) as well as in Europe (Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Norway...) and Russia. In Paris he teaches in partnership with Celine and Damian. Collaborating with the duo of musicians Artango and the dancer Cecilia Gonzalez, he is choreographer and interpreter of the performance "Artango, bal-concept".
