Educational projects Stichting VET

We want the children not only by our performance hit and start thinking, but also that we inspire them to go dancing. For each performance we develop also a preparatory dvd for in the classroom, and is there a lesson scheme. It is in a playful way to bid where the presentation is about and how it is made. So get the schools on a simple way a lot of information about the performance and the theme. The dvd is sent free to all school classes who have registered.

VET Foundation provides educational projects for young people. These projects are flexible in nature: they are tailored to the needs of the school or institution that they posted. However, the basis is always the same: young people follow workshops in a variety of disciplines; that may be street dance, modern dance, Rap-techniques, theatre expression, breakdance, martial arts, etc. Of course there is also room for disciplines that provide the young people themselves. In addition, the focus is on workshops around Theatre disciplines which are behind the scenes, including technique (light and sound) and camera.

With the knowledge and skills that young people gather at the workshops eventually, under the guidance of the VET teachers, a presentation produced. The starting point of fat is that the young people themselves are responsible for the creative and production implementation of the presentation: both for the content of the presentation (choice of the theme, dance, games, music, text) as for the disciplines of behind the scenes: the Organization and publicity, the light, the sound and the decor. The BOLD crew is there to accompany.

At the end of the project is experiencing the presentation its premiere: can that at school, but also in a real Theatre in the environment. For this version can local residents, friends and family are invited. Also the requisite publicity and recruitment measures young people themselves. The duration of the project can be tailored to the needs of the school or institution. The educational project can be organized both at home and school.

The most important aspect of the educational projects is that young people are busy with their own identity and talents. They make the show, or take part in a workshop in which their own passion and culture emerges. And that’s just the beginning. By the end of a presentation with each other to make they develop confidence and discipline, responsibility, it develops a sense of respect for each other and it promotes the social and cultural integration.
