Throughout this week (week 40), students, lectures and coordinators from Holland and Sweden are visiting the Academy in Aarhus.
Throughout week 40, 2nd to 6th of October, students, teachers and coordinators from three countries meet at the Aarhus Conservatory of Music in Aarhus for an intensive week’s work and dance. It takes place as part of the cross-disciplinary project Next Move, which will improve the quality and relevance of conservatory education in dance and music. The project will result in a collection of methods, experiences, examples, etc., which will be freely available and provide new perspectives and knowledge in the field.
The 3-year project is now in its final phase and ends this summer in Arnhem, Holland with a large conference on dance and music dactics. Here is the work of spreading the dissemination of dance and music to other target groups than the usual ones presented. The work will also be published in an online idea bank and a joint teaching module between the three partner institutions of 7.5 ECTS.
Next Move has been developed in collaboration between DJM, Stockholm University (DOCH -Dans and Cirkus School of Sweden) and ArtEZ Hogeschool voor de kunst (The Netherlands).
Wednesday evening, guests visit the Next Move meeting in Aarhus Bora Bora’s interactive dance show “Dance Your Neighbor” in Skjød Assembly Hall, where there are no performers and audiences – only participants; everyone is on the floor.
DJM’s own students and teachers are invited to talk to the guests at the canteen – or to join Skjød Forsamlingshus (between Hammel and Hadsten) Wednesday at. 18:30 to participate in the performance “Dance your neighbor”. (Registration required: email@example.com)
