Aims & objectives

General aim was to gather 30 volunteers from 30 different countries for developing cooperation between youngsters by organizing and international event together. By 4 weeks of time period, volunteers took part in dance activities, introduction seminars on Erasmus+ programs. Apart of these, they were asked to create a choreography of dance show that was performed on the opening ceremony of Bodrum Dance Festival.
First 3 weeks, volunteers were learning a dance choreography and while they were practising, they were also shooting short movie about preparations. This short movie was shown before the performance as a good tool for visibility of Erasmus+ program and European Commission youth programs.
• Volunteers visited 9 villages of Bodrum and worked at stands and did promotion of Dance festival and they will give information about Erasmus+ program and EVS program.
• Everyday one volunteer worked in EVS office and we expect from volunteer to find similar cultural events those are taken place in his/her own city our country and create a contact list of possible future partners for following years.
• During the Dance Festival, volunteers did guide dancers and care about their possible needs by working in coordination with organizing committee.
