The "GC PROJECT"
is a dance concept that was created and developed by the association "GROWING CULTURE (GC)." "Growing Culture has developed and created events since 2008. The experience in the field of dance and the organization is not likely to miss. For the beginning of the "GC PROJECT" we plan to work by means of a dance school, "GC SCHOOL" followed by the international festival of urban dance the "GC BATTLES".
1. Educational Aspects.
By offering the training sessions the "GC SCHOOL" differs in its method of learning compared to other dance schools.
The "GC SCHOOL" allows to the dancers a more creative and social work. During dance sessions dancers are forced to focus on their own development while inspiring others. The exchange between dancers will allow more intensive learning in an artistic and communicative level. The dancers will also be asked to learn to share the room, music and ideas. Links and projects will be easier to create and achieve. The sense of an artistic environment will be emphasized.
The "GC SCHOOL" is primarily a positive atmosphere, a place of inspiration, a chance to tell your story through your body and a chance to discover your authenticity by your own dance.
The objective of the "GC SCHOOL" is to provide a place for national dancers and neighboring countries, often knowing that they have a lack to find places where they could gather to express their creativity and talent or a lack of financial conditions and logistic inaccessibility.
The "GC SCHOOL" final objective is to train professional dancers and mentor them in their journey of teachers, trainers, artists or competitors.
