ZÉLIA MONTEIRO

Coordinator and teacher

Ballerina, teacher and choreographer, she bases her work of teaching dance on the perception of the body, as the main process for acquiring the technique.

At the base of his creative and pedagogical research is the thought of Klauss Vianna *, with whom he worked for eight years; and the classical Italian school, which he studied with Maria Melô **, of whom he was an assistant for more than ten years.

In 1993 he received the Bolsa Vitae de Artes for choreographic research carried out in Paris, where he resided for four years.

* Klauss Vianna (1928 - 1992), professor, choreographer and researcher from Minas Gerais, studied ballet in Belo Horizonte with professor Carlos Leite and in São Paulo with Maria Olenewa. He began his research on the body and dance in the 50's when he participated, along with a group of artists (writers, painters, sculptors, musicians) of the so-called “Geração Complemento”. It was then that he began to study the relationship between ballet movements and the plastic arts, which led him to study kinesiology and anatomy at the medical school in Belo Horizonte. At this time, he started experimenting with a new way of teaching dance and continued working as a teacher and developing his thinking and teaching method throughout his life. In recent years, he lived in São Paulo, where he served as a teacher, choreographer and creator. Zélia Monteiro was his student and collaborator from 1984 to 1992.

** Maria Melô (1910 - 1993), taught Zélia Monteiro the most important principles of corrections, as well as the movement sequences of the method created by Enrico Cecchetti (1850-1928). Italian dancer and teacher, Cecchetti renewed the teaching of ballet. Created a new system of progression of exercises making them more anatomical and natural. Ana Pavlova, Vaganova, Fokine, Karsavina, Nijinski, are some of her students in Russia, where she taught from 1892 to 1921 when she definitively returned to Italy and was named “ballet maître” at the Scalla in Milan. Maria Melô was her student of 1924 to 1928 in Milan and Zélia Monteiro studied with her in São Paulo from 1977 to 1985, when she became his assistant.
