PROGRAM

Over seven days, we will dive into movement training and artistic research with the intent to help all participants to develop their technique and explore the process of combining, Art and Skill to widen their range of movement, enrich their performance, grow in confidence, and have lots of fun!
Each day, there will be simultaneous Floorwork, Contemporary Dance, Acrobatics, Handstands, and Partner Acrobatics classes.
For each discipline, the students will be divided into Intermediate and Advanced groups so that each one will get tasks that fit better with their level.
We desire to create a safe environment and a committed and multidisciplinary space where each participant can grow and improve individually moreover in a community.
The program also includes Morning Yoga Flow and Thai Bodywork classes to nourish body and mind and prevent injuries.

 

 

LEVEL

Int / Adv

We designed the program for enthusiastic movers (with at least two years of experience),

pre-professional and professional circus, and dance artists. Each of them can get the best out of it. The level we require in general goes from intermediate to advanced.

If someone does not have experience in some of the subjects that we offer, it´s not a problem as long as there is a strong motivation to learn :)

LOCATION

The venue that will host the second edition of CDL is an ex monastery of the Franciscans friars.

Once convents were industrious laboratories of ideas and knowledge. 

Today, Ex Convento is a cultural organization based in southern Italy

that organizes and supports events, productions, festivals, and educational projects.

Placed on top of a hill and surrounded by a scented Mediterranean nature,

Ex Convento meets all our needs: an indoor space equipped for our practices, a large citrus grove, a big kitchen, an area to come together, and a beautiful shaded outdoor gym.

ACCOMMODATION

and a 15-minute walk away from the medieval historical center of Belmonte Calabro.
