From 20 to 25 April 2015 the dance department of the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp organized an intensive study program about ‘Inclusion dance’. The week is part of an Erasmus+ project, which was initiated by partners in higher education: Fontys (Tilburg), Duncan Centre Conservatoire (Prague) and Royal Conservatoire Antwerp (AP College). ‘Rethinking Bodies’ is a project aiming to redefine the vision of the body in contemporary dance and exploring new insights in dance education. The intensive study program includes workshops, debates, lectures and performances and connects to the content and programming of Antwerp’s ENTER festival.
Goele Van Dijck (BE) founded her own dance organization NAT GRAS (2002). In collaboration with Kabinet K, they became one of the pioneers in the field of dance for children in Flanders. Next to her artistic work, she teaches inclusive dance workshops for dancers with mixed abilities in Belgium and internationally.
