Equilibrio Dinamico Ensemble is a training project ideated by Roberta Ferrara, choreographer, teacher and artistic director of the Equilibrio Dinamico Company, and associated artistic director at Odyssey Dance Theater, Singapore.

In 2021 Equilibrio Dinamico has been recognised by the Ministry of Culture – General Directorate of Performing Arts as an UNDER 35 dance production reality and is supported by the city of Bari.

Now in its eighth edition, the project was born within the company Equilibrio Dinamico, a repertoire company based in Bari (Puglia). The choreographer and artistic director give birth to this project out of the need to provide young dancers with a place to find themselves, experiment, deepen their skills, discover their strengths, gain knowledge and awareness of their body through study and various experiences with professionals.

«My goal is to provide opportunities – says Roberta Ferrara – whoever enters Ensemble has to come out of it enriched from a human and artistic perspective, hence trust and respect are necessary. I worry about young people’s knowledge because I want them to be able to choose».

Quality and Versatility, Knowledge and Opportunity: these are the project keywords, which aims to be about inclusion and sharing. Ensemble makes it possible for young dancers to develop intimate and personal poetics, offering individual training while at the same time encouraging teamwork and continuous exchange.

The mission is to inform young dancers through curious and stimulating research on both physical and mental levels. An intensive programme based on sharing and aimed at personal fulfilment. Each year Ensemble becomes a crossroads of international study meetings.

Ensemble work doesn’t stop at the training, but it becomes a necessary bridge between training and work. Ensemble gives constant support to its young dancers to fulfil themself, improve awareness of their body, and build a career. The self-fulfilment of its participants is a fixed objective of our training programme.

We guide our dancers in the process of choosing and building their future and career through a personalised study plan and an auditions schedule tailored to their skills. Thanks to Ensemble, young dancers have had the opportunity to start working for dance companies and get accepted into universities or international professional centres.

Who is Ensemble intended for?

The training project Equilibrio Dinamico Ensemble was born out of the need to provide information and update. Therefore, it is aimed at those who have an awareness of movement and an aptitude for research and experimentation.

Essential is the predisposition to teamwork, discussion, exchange, and curiosity. The target audience is young dancers aged 16 and over.

Meetings and teachers:

The project will run from October to December 2021, offering:

→ Four intensive workshops

→ Three artistic residencies. The residencies will converge in a closing performance created by guests of international standing. The participants will be the protagonists of a closing show where they will have the opportunity to dance choreographies created especially for them during an evening designed as a showcase of the current scenario of contemporary dance. The sharing will be accompanied by the creations of several guest artists.

→ Creation of a Dance Movie.
