DANCE AGAINST BULLYING AT SCHOOL

Since 2019 Fabio and Antonino have been working on the development of a dance programme that can contribute to the FIGHT AGAINST BULLYING.
 
This is intended as a complementary tool to what the state and institutions are putting in place in schools, colleges and lycées, such as the PHARE PROGRAMME.
 
This desire began with the European project DAB – DANCE AGAINST BULLYING, through which we developed a free online training course for anyone working with young people. 
 
Today, our work is expanding throughout the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, with the workshops we have designed being constantly adapted to suit the target audience.

WORKSHOPS

Fabio and Antonino are now offering a programme of 5 to 6 workshops for schools and colleges in Marseille and the surrounding area :
 
  1. PREPARATION WORKSHOP (optional)
  2. WORKSHOP ON THE PASSIVE OBSERVER
  3. WORKSHOP ON THE PERSON BULLIED
  4. WORKSHOP ON THE ACTIVE OBSERVER
  5. WORKSHOP ON THE BULLY
  6. WORKSHOP ON CREATING A CHOREOGRAPHY TO RESOLVE A BULLYING SCENE

PERFORMANCE & RESTITUTION

The choreographers will create a short dance performance with professional dancers to be presented at the end of the last workshop and following the students’ performance.
 
It will be a very light form, adaptable in terms of space and technical tools used.
 
The aim is to :
 
  1. enable the students to share the ‘stage’ with dance professionals ;
  2. depper raise their public awareness of this art form in a complementary way; 
  3. raise their awareness of the profession of the performing artists and answer their questions.

OBJECTIVES

  • Using a prevention method to combat bullying and harassment among young people;
  • Make young people aware of the roles involved in a bullying situation;
