Project: Circle Dance with Teenagers Deprived of Freedom - The Possibility of a New Approach
(ADMINISTRATION | PRINT VERSION)
SUMMARY
CIRCLE DANCE WITH TEENAGERS DEPRIVED OF FREEDOM - THE POSSIBILITY OF A NEW APPROACH

This work is done with youngsters in conflict with law and that did effectively transgress the social official laws. In their life story a "permissivity" to violate ethical and moral values was somehow experienced.
Being deprived of freedom appears as an obstacle in their life, but maybe signifies the only possibility they have to reflect upon their choices and actions without all the external influences of their regular life.
But arriving in this instituition, this youngster doesn't believe this, so we need to offer them the possibility of a new form to relationship with themselves, the other, the world.
How can we significantly reach and touch them ?
CIRCLE DANCE, more then just dancing, offers the opportunity to share and be together, using dance and music as tools, as well as the contact with different cultures and traditions, different ways of seeing and living the world ( other paradigmes), oppening the space for the magic that may lead to reflection.
As I "live with" and share, my values emerge and I can rebuild them, throug victories and failures .
The possibility of a new approach towards oneself and the world.
