"The Rhythms of Nature"


The implementation of the "Rhythms of nature" project stems from the willingness to exchange knowledge and experience in the field of dance pedagogy and dance composition in conjunction with issues related to environmental protection, which constitute an important topic of social discussion around the world. We want to learn about the working methods of teachers and choreographers from European countries and the challenges they encounter in their pedagogical and creative work. We would also like to share our knowledge and professional experience with them, which is the result of many years of pedagogical work. The project will be an opportunity for a creative discussion on the selection of methods and techniques used to work with dancers. During the project, we want to develop new methods that will be a result of conducted dance laboratories, discussions, and observations together with partners.
