About the School Residency Tour
ŻfinMalta’s education and outreach programme is developed to motivate its participants by providing tailor-made experiences for individuals from all ages and backgrounds, with or without an existing relationship with movement. ŻfinMalta aims to spread/share the belief that dance is a means by which anyone can experience, explore and invest their thoughts and energy into creativity and imagination.
Anybody can dance, everybody is unique, and it is important for dance to create opportunities for participants to explore all the possibilities of their value & contribution to society. For those who have not been exposed to dance beforehand, ŻfinMalta provides experiences in which individuals actively engage with movement whether they are spectators or participants.
The ŻfinMalta School Residency Tour takes participants on a journey of self-development, self-discovery & self-learning whilst instilling curiosity and a love of learning, providing accessible, engaging and participatory creative movement workshops that lead up to a performance within the school setting itself. This performance at the end of the week of creative sessions, provides the opportunity for participants to share the stage with ŻfinMalta company dancers in front of their peers.
Creative movement experiences are led by ŻfinMalta’s highly skilled, versatile and experienced company dancers who, under the artistic direction of Paolo Mangiola, have invested time and research into developing a toolbox which well equips them to either introduce participants to the world of dance.
The School Residency Tour provides an excellent, enjoyable and high quality dance experience, encouraging participants to approach movement with honesty, imagination and curiosity. Stimulating participants’ creativity, ŻfinMalta’s company dancers nurture the idea of ownership, reflecting ŻfinMalta’s unique approach to the choreographic process therefore providing the adequate platform for participants to learn how to create movement.
