The YE “Soul Conection” is a project dealing with dance choreography as a tool for expression of one’s opinion on a given matter.The aim of this youth exchange would be to draw a choreography picture about how young people see poverty and marginalized groups in their countries and how they see their inclusion in the mainstream society. Participants would use dances from national popular cultures as ICL methods to present the gravity of how people in poverty and in excluded social groups live in their countries and how they understand poverty and social excluded groups through dance. Using dance as a tool, it will challenge assumptions about gender, ethnic identity, political, religious and cultural context in which lives are lived in the global European society. The participants would have the opportunity to perform the dances for inclusion during the projects in front of the audience.The youth exchange will be from 10-18 April 2013 and will include 54 youngsters from 6 countries from Europe and Eastern Partnership: Georgia, Armenia, Ukraine, Lithuania, Bulgaria and Czech Republic.
