With the production of an annual spectacle, the school offers to the professional the possibility of lifelong learning. Different teachers teach the repertoire of choreographies learned over the years and they create a multicultural tribe, located in many places of the world. These scenic compositions have a strong theatrical character that enables a creation and constant re-creation by the interpreter.
Also, the learning process taught by the director is quite peculiar and innovative within the context of ethnic dances, based on emotion transitions, breathing movement and development of the body spirals. The result is a work where the psychophysical unity is latent, and the spectator can feel the bark of the dancer’ soul.
