“My goal is to provide opportunities. Those who enter the Ensemble must come out enriched under the human and artistic profile, for this they must trust and have esteem. I worry about the knowledge of the guys because I want them to be able to choose”
Roberta Ferrara – artistic director EQUILIBRIO DINAMICO COMPANY and training project EQUILIBRIO DINAMICO ENSEMBLE, associated artistic director ODYSSEY DANCE THEATER. Choreographer, teacher and freelance judge.

Equilibrio Dinamico Ensemble is the training project born from an idea of Roberta Ferrara, now in its seventh edition.
The project was born within the Equilibrio Dinamico Company, a repertoire company with operational headquarters in Bari (Puglia). A need for the choreographer and artistic director to offer an environment for young dancers where to recognize, experiment, deepen their skills, discover their strengths, gain knowledge and awareness of their body through the study and the different experiences with numerous professionals.

Quality and Versatility, Information and Opportunities are the keywords of the project, which wants to be of inclusion and sharing. The Ensemble allows you to develop an intimate and personal poetics, offering individual training and at the same time promoting teamwork, a continuous comparison.

The mission is to inform young dancers through a curious and stimulating research from a physical and mental point of view. An immersion in sharing for the purpose of personal fulfillment. Each year Ensemble becomes a crossroads for international study meetings.

The work that takes place in the Ensemble starts from the training but does not stop there.
Ensemble becomes a necessary bridge between training and work. The young people who enter the Ensemble find constant support that aims at self-realization, awareness of their body and also of a profession. The realization of its participants is a constant goal in the training process offered.

The dancers are guided in the choice of their future, programming a personalized study plan and a calendar of auditions similar to their skills. Thanks to the Ensemble young dancers had the opportunity to join and work in dance companies and enter universities or international professional centers after hearing.

Who is it for?

This training project was born with the need to provide information and updates, therefore it is aimed at those who have an awareness of the movement with aptitudes for research and experimentation.
