Welcome on the website of

World Children Unity Dance!

nederlands nl english en frans fr

 

WCU-Dance = “We SEE You Dance”.  

The focus of our non-profit organisation is on DANCE for YOUTH & CHILDREN.

We like to discover and to SEE the unique dance that's in every youngster and child!

Our team of danceteachers facilitates educational danceworkshops in schools in Belgium.We bring the world of streetchildren and refugees into the classroom.

 

Every year (since 2010) we organise a dancecontest (see link contest).

All benefits go to a wonderful streetchildren project in India (and also Nepal and Peru).

 

Every year we organize in cocreation with youngsters a unique DanceTheatreMusical SEE (an inclusion project with and for youngsters, children, refugees)

in which our dancetheatergroup  is building towards a wonderful performance in which the youngsters and children are the stars, singing & dancing or playing musique.

 

...we support streetchildren in third world countries and refugee children...

...but also and not to forget "streetchildren" in our own country or neighborhood :

the children and youngsters that got stuck in 'a dead end street' and face major problems...

!give them a second Dance!

WCU-DANCE BUILDING BLOCKS:

the CHILD    -   the DANCE   -    the BODY   -    NATURE     -   the FAMILY     -    the SCHOOL

 

By dancing with the children, we build a world of multicultural global awareness and solidarity : "THE WORLD IS ONE LARGE VILLAGE" (statement by Minister of State Mark Eyskens, during his speech on October 17th 2011 at the University of Antwerp on the communicative world society)

Our keyword is Empowerment :

through DANCE and on a positive, gentle and fun way,

we let the children discover their center, core, strenght, self-esteem, abilities and dreams...

"dancing = dreaming with your feet and body "

 

a dancing child = a happy child

YOUNGSTER PROJECTS last years:

 

2015 : DANCETHEATREMUSICAL : "SEE"

 

In this inovatif inclusion project our group of danceteachers/actors/dancers, created together with a group of youngsters (youthcare in cooperation with De Wissel, Rizsas and Jeugddorp) and a group of children with special care (schools of Ter Bank Leuven, and Damiaan Tremelo) the professional performance SEE.

Do you SEE the face, the mask, the problem, the label of the child or youngster?

Or do you SEE... the wonderful Diamond deep inside?

The theater will give you the opportunity to see things from another perspective!

The performance was on sunday 7 (cc Den Bussel Keerbergen) and 14 june 2015 (cc OPEK Leuven)!
