Seeds: A Contemporary Dance Educational Action to Egypt- Call for Applications

Posted on

The BA Arts Center in partnership with the British Council, Egypt, are launching SEEDS- a contemporary dance educational action to Egypt, with the support of the Delegation of the European Union to Egypt from April 2014 till January 2015.

This project was conceived out of the necessity to support and reinforce the role of artistic education in promoting social responsibility, social cohesion, cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue (UNESCO Seoul Agenda -2010).

Seeds provides a consistent extensive training for 20 dance teachers in Egypt, targeting dance community members combined with a large educational dance activity towards the civil society. The Project will accompany and support dancers in developing their leadership skills and education knowledge, expand their dance vocational activity and build their network of contacts within cultural field, cultural organizations and across the education sector. It will improve expertise and evaluation abilities for both dancers and cultural organizations collaborating in the project and spread dance as a regular educational activity in Egypt.

The participating dance teachers will follow 345 hours of theoretical and practical learning, conducted by dance learning teaching educators based in Europe (United Kingdom and France), and in the Arab World (Lebanon and Egypt). They will be held at Ezzat Ezzat Contemporary Dance Studio, in Giza, Cairo.

Applicants must be Egyptians and Egyptian residents, have at least a B1 level of English, over 22 years old, with at least 2 years of dance experience, and committed to all training sessions.

Completed application forms (in English or Arabic), along with C.V.s, should be sent to by Sunday 28 March 2014, 12:00 am Cairo time.
