Valencia, Spain

A ballet teacher from Valencia, Spain, Esther Mortes first learned about Gregg and Tamar through an ABC news broadcast in 2011. She felt inspired by Tamar and Gregg’s work and, in collaboration with Maria Castillo, the mother of a child with CP, and dancer and physical therapist Patricia Moran, began Balletvale+, a project focused on creating ballet classes for children with CP. In October 2014 they came to NYC and met with Tamar and Gregg. They invited them to Valencia, Spain, for a one-week workshop in February, where Tamar will also be teaching teachers her approach to the body, including body scripting and various techniques. During her time in Spain, she will also begin the groundwork for forming a Posse in Valencia.
