Scuola internazionale delle Arti e della Cultura italiana

AEF Accademia Europea Firenze

The term Hip Hop not only refers to a dance but also to an actual culture. Originally from Africa, the Hip Hop culture spread to the United States at the end of the seventies through Street Dance as a form of social protest. It then became very widespread, being declined in different styles (Popping, Locking, Hype, New Style, and House) and accompanied by various kinds of music.

The Hip Hop course is held by a teacher and choreographer known for using the Hip Hop language in a more modern key and who is able to translate this language in all the expressive forms typical of the dance. The lessons foresee the study of the basic techniques of contraction, waving, sliding steps, and specific exercises for increasing the speed of execution in feet and legs. In the second part of the course a choreographic piece is studied and then presented at the end of the course. 

Teacher: Gigi Nieddu

FLORENCE DANCE FESTIVAL

For 25 years now, the Florence Dance Festival has represented a focal point of great importance for international dance in Florence. The events of the Festival have been, and are, still held in the most beautiful spots of the city: the Cascine Park, the Roman Amphitheatre of Fiesole, Piazza SS. Annunziata, the Boboli Gardens, the Uffizi Gallery, Piazzale Michelangelo, and Forte Belvedere, to name just a few. In its numerous editions, the greatest names in the world of dance have been guests at the Festival: Merce Cunningham, Maurice Béjart, Antonio Gades, José Limon, Carolyn Carlson, Trisha Brown, Igor Mossiev, Cristina Hoyos, David Parsons, Stephen Petronio, Boris Eiffman, Pasquale Rioult, Alessandra Ferri, Julio Bocca, Isabelle Gueren, Laurence Hillaire, Marga Nativo, and Carla Fracci as well as the leading companies worldwide. Since 2009 the Festival has been held in the National Bargello Museum: the privilege of being able to exploit such a magnificent courtyard for the performances offers an incredible opportunity of students of the European Academy of Florence. In fact, during the summer courses they are regularly involved in the productions and the unforgettable experience of holding a performance in a single site. What does it take to become a choreographer? How do you learn to give shape to ideas through movement and music? Our workshop is divided into three parts: dance, choreographic design and the final performance. Through this course, students have a complete experience in choreography under the guidance of an expert teacher acclaimed internationally.
