From May to October 2023, the OWN YOUR BLOCK dance session took place every Wednesday in the pavilion of Dammweg 216!
The weekly dance sessions were for the community:
Free of charge and accompanied every week by professional dancers who were on hand to help participants with questions and tips.
Over months, we were able to offer young people a valuable space to dance together and engage in creative exchange. We have seen many faces – both old and new- sharing the their talent, time and energy!
Some of our highlights of the project were our free dance battles, where dancers could show off their skills, and the OWN YOUR BLOCK summer camp – a week long dance camp in outskirts of Berlin- which we were able to offer to a group of young people free of charge.
At OWN YOUR BLOCK Summercamp the participants danced together every day and made a video at the end of the week to sum up their activities. There were also many other leisure activities such as swimming, badminton, dance films, board games and more.
