Students from around the world will compete for the chance to be noticed by a world-renowned panel of judges and to win amazing prizes. Besides several cash prizes, The World Dance Movement International Dance Competition (July 13) will award prestigious scholarships for international dance studios such as Broadway Dance Center (NYC), Peridance Capezio Center (NYC) and Studio Harmonic (Paris) as well as for Complexions Contemporary Ballet‘s Summer Workshop co-directed by dance superstar Desmond Richardson, who will also teach at WDM Italy.

World Dance Movement began with an idea to give dancers around the world a forum through which they can learn from and inspire each other both artistically and culturally.  World Dance Movement – The International Workshop – builds connections between dance and diverse cultures that inspire and transform dancers around the world. Our focus is to present dancers with an opportunity where they receive one-on-one training and attention in a noncompetitive atmosphere. The curriculum challenges dancers of all levels through a comprehensive study-vacation model.

“I wanted to bring together all the dancers and cultures I had worked with all over the world under one umbrella,” said Michèle Assaf, Founder and Artistic Director – World Dance Movement.  “I was so inspired when I traveled to different countries and was able to see the way dancers trained, the class etiquette, the passion each one had. The idea to create World Dance Movement was to allow them all to share their artistry with each other.”

 “’World Dance Movement’ is just that, master teachers and dancers from all over the world, uniting through dance and collectively learning from one another. It is an experience not to be missed, an opportunity to get out of your comfort zone and learn about different cultures and investing oneself for ultimate growth,” says Desmond Richardson, Co-Founder/Artistic Director of Complexions Ballet & WDM faculty member

“Forget the super-crowded hotel-based conventions and come to World Dance Movement,” says Belinda Wagner, WDM Parent.  “Super fabulous dancing, fun socializing with dancers and choreographers from all over the world, scenic towns and beaches, and of course… gelati and other delicious delicacies at the signature event in Italy!”

Nato con l’obiettivo di creare un’occasione di contatto per i ballerini di tutto il mondo, il World Dance Movement si è caratterizzato sin dall’inizio per l’attenzione individuale riservata a ciascun allievo, per l’atmosfera non competitiva ma di altissimo livello professionale, per lo scambio costante tra tutti i partecipanti non solo sul fronte della danza ma anche a livello culturale. Perché la creazione di un legame tra la danza e le molteplici culture che confluiscono nel WDM ispira e trasforma i ballerini, rendendoli professionisti migliori, più sensibili e consapevoli.

“Volevo unire tutti i ballerini e culture con i quali avevo lavorato in giro per il mondo – spiega Michele Assaf – Ero così ispirata quando viaggiavo in paesi diversi e avevo la possibilità di vedere come i ballerini studiavano, si comportavano in sala e la passione che ognuno di loro aveva. L’idea di creare il World Dance Movement è venuta dal desiderio di permettere a tutti i ballerini di condividere le loro abilità artistiche con gli altri”.  

Il ‘World Dance Movement’ è semplicemente questo – aggiunge  Desmond Richardson, Co-­‐fondatore, direttore Artistico del Complexions Contemporary Ballet ed insegnate del WDM – grandi insegnanti e ballerini provenienti da ogni parte del mondo che imparano uno dall’altro, uniti dalla danza. È un’esperienza da non perdere, un’opportunità per fare qualcosa in più e conoscere culture diverse investendo nella propria crescita professionale”.
