From September 2020 to June 2021, there will be no classes.
A contemporary dance class with improvisation features that gives adolescents the opportunity to get inspired, supported and expressed with their body.
In the end of the school year and if they wish, children will experience the whole process of composing, rehearsing and producing (backdrops, costumes, lights, make up, live music etc) and they will have the opportunity to cooperate with the professional artists of Kinitiras dance spectacle during the whole process of creating a dance piece.
Our purpose is that the class and the rehearsal process will act as a healing factor in our daily life. In this way, the social benefits of the arts directly affects the everyday life of the local community.
