Summer Program – São Paulo and Belo Horizonte
The Mostra Dança Summer Program – Russian Method happens every January and includes national and international teachers in an intensive teaching for 10 days in São Paulo and 5 days in Belo Horizonte, where many dance techniques are developed, with a unique and innovative class structure, as well as a method course for teachers. With an increasing number of participants: 2011 - 60 students, 2012 - 100 students, 2013 - 140 students, 2014 - 180 students and as of 2015, we have reached the sum of 250 students. The course takes place at a different location every year and students come from all over Brazil and from abroad, for instance, Angola, Cuba, France, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay. In 2015, the course spread its horizons and started an extension in Belo Horizonte, already a success of audience in its first year with more than 100 participants. The advantage of the Holiday Course Mostra Dança, aside from not having the montage of a spectacular, what allows the focus to stay really in the learning process during classes, is that every student is treated individually, with respect and attention to their specific needs so that the development can be achieved in the best possible way, even in a short period of time.
