At the beginning of October, the National Dance Centre Bucharest launched the second edition of a unique project in Romania. Dance and Performance Academy. The only programme in the country that trains professional dancers in the area of contemporary dance and performing arts and supports young people to have access to the European art system. During these months you have met some of the Academy’s students and teachers at Dance Diary. Some, with their expectations, emotions and experiences lived in the classroom, others, with new perspectives and diverse international experience.
For this year’s last Dance diary episode, Luana Pleșea’s guests are Ana Papadima, who is in charge of the CNDB’s education and training department and, by extension, the Academy of Dance and Performance, and Mihai Mihalcea, director of programmes and projects at the CNDB.
