Cualidad & Estilo!

It takes a lot more more than creativity to accomplish new goals. Dance is lots of things really. Not only movements and steps, neither just feelings or sensation. It is many hours of practice, maintaining discipline, willingness to work with others in team environment and ofcourse the willingness to try (and moving boundaries).

 

Claudio uses different elements as you can see in his basic steps and he likes the Puertorican influences as well. On top of all that he adds his Brazilian 'power and grace' and there it is......tremendous dynamite!

Portugese

 

Os povos dos paises baixos (Holanda) e Europa, comecaram a indentificar Claudio Gomes, pelo seu estilo enovador de dancar. Claudio comecou ensinando lambada, logo em seguida incluiu a Salsa em seu programa. Devido a excelente reacao do publico, logo acrescentou outros estilos como: Zouk, bolero, sambas de pagode e de gafieira, forro, como tambem Axé (Lambaerobecs ). Tres cidades foram a base de sua promocao sendo elas: Amsterdam, Haia (Den Haag) e por algum tempo Utrecht. Em Amsterdam e Den Haag foram fundados dois populares Centros de Dancas, onde se da contunuidade a promocao das dancas brasileiras e latinas. Ele criou um estilo completamente novo de dancar, com movimentos sensacionais. As carecteristicas tipicas deste estilo sao, a sensualidade e temperamento. "Dancar e uma arte, e arte e uma constante criacao".  Como dancar e uma arte, e muito importante ser criativo, mantendo sempre a mente aberta para novos conhecimentos. Para se criar, nao acredita ser possivel realizar isoladamente. Quando viaja procura ver,  experimentar e aprender o maximo possivel. E possivel aprender a todo momento, e com todos. O que e convertido depois em inspiracao, fator importantissimo para sua propria auto confianca profissional. Em seu estilo de dancar Salsa, Claudio usa varios elementos cubanos como cassino, elementos colombianos, portorriquenhos entre outros, deixando bem claro, sua forte influencia brasileira. Como o proprio nome salsa deixa claro, e um verdadeiro saus, salada, mistura de varias culturas.
