Dance goes beyond creativity and expression. The dancing experience offers a space where different types of bonding and relations happen: friendships, enterprises, loves, families, movements can be started and raised when people get together to dance. Communities created through this experience are, at the same time, highly influenced and inspired by dynamics belonging to the cultural roots where everything originated and by new challenges in a society facing continuous transformations. This panel gives a chance to look at street and traditional dance styles from a unique perspective, discussing aggregation, families and community building showing the power carried by this form of expression.
