Up2Dance 637x232

Companhia de Dança de Almada is currently involved in the Up2DANCE project, whose main objective is to promote the collaboration exchange of good practices at EU level, in particular regarding the development of specific skills for today and tomorrow contemporary dance professions. This project is the result of a collaboration between Balletto di Roma (Italy), Derida Dance Centre (Bulgaria), Magenta Consultoria (Spain), Polish Dance Theatre (Poland), ICK (Holand) and Companhia de Dança de Almada (Portugal).

Contemporary Dance is going through a time of enormous vitality, with the emergence and implantation of many innovative and remarkable projects in the European artistic environment, standing out in the most diverse stages and driven by social networks and some media more attentive to cultural activities. However, the recognition of professional figures linked to this area is still scarce and fragmented, with negative consequences for the employability of professionals. At European level, there is no uniformity in training or in the recognition of the necessary skills and characteristics of each profession, or in the definition of the respective profiles, which can hamper the movement of professionals in the sector.

The Up2DANCE project aims to survey the situation at European level, in order to support the modernization of education and training systems, in particular through better use of EU transparency and recognition tools and the exchange of good practices related to dance industry at European level, in order to boost the process of harmonizing and updating the curricula of professional profiles according to the requirements of the contemporary scenario.

As a starting point, the main activity to be carried out will be the organization of round tables with local, regional or national stakeholders, with the aim of detecting the state of the art in recognizing professional occupations, discussing skills and the type of training at different levels, looking for existing gaps and ways to overcome them.

 

The Up2DANCE project is co-financed by the European Union's programme Erasmus+, ID 2019-1-IT01-KA202-007609.
