Youth exchange: Dance Movement and body expression for YOUTH

Big image


It was a KA1 youth exchange project about dance, body expression and movement for young people to rediscover their body, learn form and about it and develop a new and healthy attitude towards it.

The participants enjoyed different approaches for body work, dance and theatre and at the end of the youth exchange created a performance together that was performed in the town of Caravaca in a public event.


The aim of this youth exchange was:

To promote dance, body expression and choreographic theatre as a way to break social stereotypes or prejudices about refugees or migrants

Our specific objectives were:

- To create a safe space for exchange, mutual learning, and intercultural interaction among young people through artistic approaches and non formal education activities.

- To raise awareness of young people about the healthy benefits of dance, choreographic theatre and body expression.

- To develop young people's knowledge, skills and attitudes regarding the current refugees' crisis in Europe.

- To foster young people creativity and spontaneity so that they find new ways for self expression.

- To explore and learn how to create dance or choreographic theatre plays for breaking prejudices and stereotypes about migrants or refugees.


Target Group

Young people aged between 18 and 25 years old with high interest in dance, theatre and body expression as well as intercultural learning.

We are inviting partners from EU countries and Associated Countries (Armenia, Belarus, Serbia, etc.)
