Hello honesty. It was my pleasure to travel to France (Toulous) with 1 other Czech member on the 12th November. We were really excited about the project “Dance Your ability” that ended on the 22th November. There were 5 members in each group country and 2 minimum people from country: the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic, Romania a six from the hosting country: France.
Thanks to the perfect preparation and organization of our leader – Martin and we were able to create a wonderful team without any single mistake! During a lot of activities we got to know each other better and better and thanks to many group works, we were able to cooperate quite easily. We were dealing, for example with environmental problems of each of us, possibilities of saving money / clean by our self /, how we imagine the future world as well as with trying to find solutions for every task. Presentation of our results allowed us to practice English and move our level a little bit higher!
Moreover, we experienced quite a lot from France vital culture – Traditional dance in premiere we were practiced it, great France food, drinks and we had a lot of opportunities to explore the market and had picnic to amazing caves.
Considering it all in all, this project had something special in itself. Everything was so calm, pretty and amazing, like somewhere in the dream. What is glorious is the cooperation between nations, realizing that the character problems are basically the same and the most important thing is the fact that every individual can do something to make the situation better. During the project, each team have created the programs to taught another team to improved the materials of dance movement therapy. For all of us this was only the beginning. Now, when we are back home we can try to realize our ideas to heal peoples soul and be happy if any of them will come true. We can start with creating a lot of beautiful things or we can use movement as the most powerful weapon to change the world, because I belive that dance to heal the soul. Everything is up to us!
To sum it up, if there is no Erasmus as the great group allowing a lot of people to do amazing things Erasmus would have to be invented! Thank a lot every single person allowing these projects to happen!
