Dance Experimentation in Italy – by BEECOM

DANCE IS A SONG OF THE BODY. FOR US IS A SONG OF PEACE.

Dance is a song of the body, be it of joy or of punishment. (Martha Graham)

 

On October 23rd and 24th, with the collaboration of SPRAR Mugello, we carried out another of the In & Out projects, the one dedicated to dance and developed for the In & Out project by DUG, the Swedish partner who recently hosted us in Stockholm.

In the educational workshop of Borgo San Lorenzo we worked, on the first day, through games of knowledge on trust, to start working on the construction of the group, on self-esteem and well-being in the team. It was a useful and entertaining moment, in which the participants - 18 in total including 4 Italians and 14 SPRAR and CAS beneficiaries - really knew how to get involved.

On the second day the tutors started to teach the participants a series of basic steps for a hip-hop dance, in a relaxed atmosphere of fun, In which some of the brakes that often make us ashamed in an activity like dance. The group then found himself dancing to the rhythm and having fun.

While the dance does not belong to the Beecom experience, which has always worked on media education issues, we have discovered, together with the beneficiaries, the potential of this tool also in the educational field.

This is why we say thanks to DUG and the In & Out project!
