Hurja Piruetti wish Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


Hurja Piruetti is part of the international network and representing basic art education in dance and young dancers in this project together with young dancers from Listaskoli RO - Iceland.

"DanceMe UP is a project based on audience development via digital means which aims to build an international production-oriented network of ten innovative European organizations based in Italy, Germany, Finland, France and Iceland (plus one Associated Partner from Switzerland).
The word “UP” refers to the digital instrument of the APP of DanceMe which represents the important evolution of the web site danceme.org; DanceMe represents a virtual space where artists present their own research to the audience, discuss and  debate with each other by using texts, images, videos and music, helping the artists working with greater ease and more speed towards the creation of the final live performance. And to broaden UP the EU cultural scenario (“UP for Europe!”) deepening the levels of engagement between artists, cultural organizations and audiences in Europe both on line (by using the App) and off line (by specific workshops, the residencies and the live shows).

Coming together from the edges of the world. The meeting of three countries and three youth dance companies in the unique milieu of Tasmania. The goal of this project was to provide a platform for young dancers to explore issues important to them and their community. Stompin Company hosted this dance adventure on the East Coast of Tasmania for the visiting dancers from Finland and Denmark. Alongside Stompin Company the participants were immersed in a camp style program of dance classes and choreographic development with focus on cultural exchange and sitespecific movement and choreography. We hope that this project will be the start of a continued exchange and long-lasting dance network.
