Power of Movement In Youth Work

Training Course

16-24 July 2023 | Zlata Idka, Slovak Republic

Training course for youth workers that combines blues (one of the main African-American vernacular dance choreography), community dance methodology and specific creative uses of dance movement therapy for working with young people.

What are we going to do:

  • Learn basic blues movements
  • Work on  kinesthetic awareness (in order to know and control the position and state of the body),developed awareness of space, a strong sense of rhythm, and an appreciation of music. 
  • Discover the social and historical significance of the blues music and dance as expression of community and solidarity which fueled social movements of African American and inspired youth and cultural minorities globally

Participants’ profile:

  • comfortable with self-directed and experiential learning and non-formal methodologies with a participant-centred approach
  • curious about discovering blues dance and the possibility of self-expression through body movement
  • interested in using community dance techniques as tools for supporting target groups in discovering their collective power
  • keen on meeting youth workers from different organisations and expanding professional network
  • committed to participate in all the training’s activities and eager to share and implement acquired skills with colleagues and through activities in home organisation.

Please note that this TC will be physically demanding (around 3,5 hours of physically activities are planned per day).
