Brief description of the project:
The objective of the project was a cultural exchange between dancing groups that perform popular and traditional dances from different European and Asian countries. The dancers presented and showed to the others the basic of their popular and original culture. The objective of the project was to get to know each other and through discussion, international cooperation, integration and training raise up the attitude of tolerance and open-mindedness. The exchange lasted eleven days and eight of those days were dedicated to dancing activities presented by each country so that each country was the “host country” of the activities, workshops and the international evening for the rest of participants. The international cooperation and creativity brought about a successful outcome, a performance shown in the Cultural Centre of Lublin, attended by representatives of the Lublin local community.
