Private Coaching

Privat Coaching Program- PCP

Individual coaching in dance means to give an impulse to the own objectives and to take sustained action to promote the development of one's own physical and artistic personality, which empowered thru interactive communication can  be applied  in every artistic and creative process of dance.


An interactive feedback means a retroactive communication that, by awakening the student's self-criticism, allows him/her to reflect, to design and prioritize the goals, taking an important initiative in the own  artistic development.


The philosophy of work presents a possibility of helping the individual development of the student, allowing him to unfold different facets of his personality. The object is to promote individual potential of the young dancers, reaffirming their qualities and competences, as well as reflecting on their deficits and giving them the necessary support to improve them.


Educating individual talent by activating its skills, tenaciously applying the acquired abilities, exploring their own inner voice and instinct through dance.


Joan Jansana

Training sections

Nowadays a lot is demanded from a dancer. They must master several techniques and make use of them, making personal proposals through them and become a juggler who plays freely with all the acquired knowledge, interrelation of subjects and styles.

To give impulse to the own objectives, a sustained action to the development of one's own artistic personality.

- Private lessons

- Preparation for competitions

- Preparation for auditions

- Creation of choreographic solos, enhancing their technical and artistic profile

- Online or in-person coaching with teachers associated to the project.

1st & 2nd Course

1st & 2nd International Dance Summer Course

The essence of our Summer Dance Courses is to promote and motivate dancers, so that they are able to learn and put into practice a wide variety of skills and styles.


Mine and my team's vision for these events is to teach our students to discern and understand different proposals using innovative and updated methods.


Our mission is to help dancers to become a versatile profile; this is linked to the demands that a young professional dancer can find in today's professional world.

3rd International Summer Course:

Dance & Holidays


Pablo Bueno

JC Dance Art Projects in collaboration with the Institute of Arts of Barcelona-Sitges , welcomes you to our 3rd International Dance Summer Course , presenting the new event Dance & Holidays .


From July 19 to 31, 2021 , our organizational team is committed to offer you a new pedagogical and artistic activity, promoting the talent and motivation of our participants.

Together with a prestigious team of invited professionals the doors will be open to work with different styles and updated methods in relation to the versatility needed by today's dancers. A way of learning  which generates capacities and improvements in the different techniques of the classes and improves the creative intuition.


Dance & Holidays is aimed at Classical-Contemporary dancers who are interested in a project of fusion and diversity of profiles, working in a constructive professional environment and in an experience of human-artistic coexistence.


The wonderful facilities of IAB-Sitges - only 30 minutes away from the city  Barcelona -  offer a perfect and luminous space that favours a relaxing and harmonious working environment (see  video on our  website referring to “ Facilities”).


After school hours, the seaside town of Sitges is an ideal place to enjoy the sea and a holiday atmosphere. Our proposal will include the possibility to stay in a hotel or apartments  associated with our project offering a discount for participants and their families.  Information and links can also be found on our website.  


Your trust helps our projects come to life, thank you.

July 31 at 5:00 p.m.

IAB Sitges Theater-Institute of the Arts Barcelona

Ticket price: € 10 in cash

Our idea for a show at the end of the 3rd International Dance Summer Course is a proposal for an educational activity based on an updated and versatile concept. 

Keeping the pedagogical and artistic strategy in mind and to continue learning from the experience and pleasure of being on stage, we are motivated to offer our students the opportunity to feel like the protagonists of the event.

We would like to change the format - often established in other course - where professional dancers are invited to perform, and students are simply accompanying them in a group dance. 

Our idea is to integrate everyone, promoting different profiles and ages, where learning with illusion is possible for each of them.


The event LAND OF ALL will also be part of this show. An activity to present  the  intense work of improvisation and composition, culminating in a creative proposal,  which our participants have been working with different artists  using  different tools and styles encouraging the personality and talent of each of them.

A celebration and farewell to the course opening the doors to the union.

The creation of bridge designed to connecting talents in a fusion of personalities, CREATIVITY.  

Where the protagonists are the current and future performers, on a generous artistic conjunction of repertoires and styles, based on the excellent work of all the artistic teachers involved.
