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.
