Make your move is an 9-days international training course for youth workers and educators to explore the opportunities of using contemporary dance as an innovative, learner-centered approach in activities involving youth. The project aims to focus on individuals’ potential by recognizing the strong link between the mind and body. It seeks to leverage the body as a resilient resource, especially when the mind faces challenges. Through exploring transferable skills, the project aims to show that proficiency in presenting, training, coaching, and conveying impactful messages can be cultivated through the body.



Working with individuals and groups, the project aims to encourage active participation, stimulate creativity, and initiate competencies expressed through non-verbal communication and body language. Looking ahead, a key goal is to incorporate contemporary dance as an innovative, learner-centered approach in youth activities, enhancing the development of these interconnected skills.
