ABOUT THE PROJECT

The project DAB-Dance against Bullying is supported by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ programme, Key Action 2- Strategic partnership for youth. The project has the main aim of tackling the phenomenon of bullying among young people, using the tools of contemporary dance and nurturing an innovative methodology. Bullying has been raising concerns of local authorities and youth workers in the last decade for its vicious effects on those affected and as a sign of social unease by those practicing it. The DAB-Dance Against Bullying project aims at integrating the good practices already existing within a new approach based on dance workshops, bringing together youth workers and young people in the fight against bullying, especially when words are difficult to express. Indeed, along with the positive effects that music and movements have on the development of young people, dance is a great tool to work for the empowerment and resilience against violence and abuses. The project improves the skills of youth workers to support young people on overcoming specific problems related to bullying by the means of activities of integration, team building, creativity, and self -empowerment. With a choreographer/trainer/expert on dance and using our methodology, youth workers are able to work with young people as to develop the stages of the contemporary dance workshops, which include : sessions of non-formal education aimed at analysing the phenomenon of bullying (from the viewpoint of the bullied, the bullies and passive and active observers; situations where bullying behaviours emerge; role-plays focused on the main actors of a bullying scenario). Dance workshops have been filmed and analysed by the DAB consortium through the explanation of methods, progresses and results. You can find both videos and results on this platform and share the project’s outcomes to all the stakeholders wishing to realize similar projects. The project’s duration has been of 30 months, from July 2019 to December 2021.
