Once again this year, Dansa Metropolitana aims to make dance and the arts of movement more accessible to students in secondary and post-secodary schools in the cities taking part, through free training and activities that in some cases include educational material to bring the world of dance to young people in a cross-cutting way. A way of generating debate and of understanding this artistic discipline, and also as a space for expression and reflection, criticism and protest.
The programme includes attendance at open rehearsals of artists and companies scheduled to perform at the festival and specific workshops with professionals, with a view to encouraging the practice of dance.
Brodas Bros, Kernel Dance Theatre, Marina Pravkina, Vero Cendoya, Roseland Musical and Gaston Core are some of the names that we find in the educational project, in collaboration again EN RESiDÈNCiA. Creators in secondary schools, the opening up of the creative processes behind the pieces that Alessandra Garcia, Rosa Romero and Adrián Vega will be presenting in this edition.
In all, there will be some 40 activities on offer in Badalona, Barcelona, Cornellà, Esplugues, Granollers, Hospitalet, el Prat, Sabadell, Sant Cugat, Santa Coloma, Terrassa and Viladecans.
An excellent opportunity for pupils to discover dance, and experience it for themselves in an active way.
