Aims & objectives

‘Dance with Me’ is a 10-day training course for active youth workers who will explore the opportunities to use contemporary dance as innovative learner-centred approach in activities involving youth. It is a training course on beginner level in contemporary dance and performance-creation, combined with action-based coaching, video and team coaching to facilitate group work in performance creation.

The purpose of the training is to explore contemporary dance as a tool in youth work by personal experience, practice and physical training. The training offers a practical, easy to follow process promoting social inclusion, healthy lifestyle and active European citizenship on individual and community level. Main focus is development of creativity and entrepreneurial skills.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

Young people active in society and youth workers. Countries: Bulgaria, Hungary, Holland, Israel, Croatia, Greece, Lativa.

Training methods used & main activities

All the training is based on personal experience and learning by doing. More specificly all the activities include movement, contemporary dance, theatre and coaching.

Outcomes of the activity

Most of the participants get more self-aware, more confident, more in peace with themselves. Some went to pursue art and performance carriers as an outcome. The Erasmus+ KA1 projet "Expanding Routes" is a direct outcome of this project, with nearly the same countries and NGO-s participating in it.

Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

Coach of the participants. Most of the coaching happened in a group form, and there were also occasions of one-on-one coaching.

I worked on this training for 10 days as a full time trainer.
