The Art to Dance Community

The Singing Body

At the interface of art, therapy, and social work, this strategic partnership brings together organizations from Germany, France, Portugal and Croatia to exchange good practices and develop innovative methods. Co-founded by the European Union, we will explore the potential of dance and music as a tool to promote social inclusion by merging African musical traditions, contemporary art, and holistic pedagogy. Within the intercultural approach, the physical body becomes the “common ground” on which diversity and transformation can not only be experienced but celebrated!

Under the title „The singing Body- physical empowerment for European values“, organizations in artistic, social and intercultural spheres of activity located in Germany, Portugal, Bulgaria, Spain and Italy are partnering, to establish together a interdisciplinary project in the dance pedagogy for empowerment. The transnational intercultural project plan wants to give artists a place of exchanging practices in dance and pedagogy and to expand their network. Innovative methods will help to deepen together the artistic practice.
