"The Rhythms of Nature"


Rhythms of rain sessions:

Let´s rain workshops


Engaging in celebration of the European Day of Languages & the UN Global Week to act 4 SDGs with ArtManifesto, poster action

The implementation of the "The Rhythm 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.

Connecting dance arts & education with sustainable development, in particular with environmental education and ecology, through a creative ecology approach that puts diversity and collaboration at the center of all activities; dance arts-based environmental education: developing transversal skills through arts-based methods; introducing theories, concepts, and methods for guidance to ecosomatic approaches, as a source to improve the human-human, humans-environment relations, thus enabling more responsible acting toward and within the social & natural environment; exploring the rhythms of nature as a source for the improvement of the relational cultures and leaving conditions, and as inspiration in arts for creation of the innovative methods for inquiry-based learning, choreographing, engaging in sustainable development projects, improving health-care cultures with ecosomatic approach to resilience.


Furthermore, the project connects dance arts education with environmental and cognitive humanities, cultural diplomacy, and sustainable development politics, which makes a unique move toward more comprehensive studies and widens perspectives for further collaborations among dance arts students and teachers with scientists for the engagement toward the realization of the sustainable development goals as our common value compass and a main source for cultural diplomacy activities through dance arts practices and education
