S.T.A.DY DANCE is focused on the development of alternative training methods and approaches stimulating the (re)-integration of diverse groups of trainees with various backgrounds (professionals, beginners, disadvantaged, amateurs, dance students, seniors, children, disabled etc.) into dance training. Through the exchange of practices, teachers’ training in various dances (classical, contemporary, multicultural etc.) and pilot implementation of training students we aim to create a common model of improved educational techniques that will reinforce the educational profile of dance trainers and enhance their employability. Our aim is to foster the preparation of the education and training of professionals for equity, diversity and inclusion challenges in the learning environment. Consequently individual and collective experience among all stakeholders will be utilized in order to provide dance trainers with training tools applicable to a variety of diverse trainees both in formal and non-formal education. The project based transnational collaboration will respectively facilitate the access of diverse groups of learners to high quality education and training. Furthermore the partnership will increase synergies and links among dance training providers (dance companies, institutions of vocational training, cultural centers, dance schools, colleges) and therefore promote interaction between practice and research in strengthening key competences in VET curricula.
