Tanz die Toleranz (TdT) / Caritas Wien

Name of the N-arts activity: Youth Dance 

To discover contemporary dance as a medium to communicate with others and to develop a meaningful relationship with their bodies through the experience of movement, both as a learning process and as a tool for self-expression.

Intention

TdT’s concept of Adult Education

The experience of participating in a dance project in adulthood help in the lifelong development of individual identity, a help that stimulates and enhances the cognitive, social and moral development of individual competencies. Our goal is to stimulate lifelong learning and to set impulses which, in the ideal case, lead to individual processes being set in motion and continued. 

The impact indicators of the N-arts activity "Youth Dance" on learners were gained through qualitative interviews with the participants. The key findings were then related to the to the dynamic action model "5 Ways to Wellbeing" (by New Economics Foundation NEF).
