The integrated dance workshop was given at the Inclusive Dance Event in Tilburg (NL). This event marks the closing of the 3 years Erasmus+ project ‘The Transferable skills of the dance artist’. A project developed by an international consortium formed by Fontys Dance Academy in Tilburg (NL), Royal Conservatoire Antwerp – Artesis Plantijn University College (BE) and Duncan Centre Conservatory in Prague (CZ), in co-operation with their respective partners DEMOS Antwerp, Parkinson Help vs. Prague and Tilburg Dansstad/ DansBrabant.
The project ‘ Transferable skills of the dance artist’ aims to redefine dance education, contribute to career development and the positioning of dance in society from an inclusive approach. How dancers can diversify and pro-actively create their own job opportunities, not only as performers but to expand the benefits of dance in society.
At the Royal Conservatoire in Antwerp we focused on the theme ‘Re-thinking bodies‘ in new and existing dance practices , national and international, accessible for dancers with and without disabilities that are interested in movement and dance being inclusive for dancers with a variety of physical and mental disabilities.
‘Rethinking Bodies’ is a project/intensive study program aiming to redefine the vision of the body in contemporary dance and exploring new insights in dance education.
