The fourth Danceschoolways Festival conducted by the Isadora & Raymond Duncan Dance Research Center with the kind support of the J. F. Costopoulos Foundation ended at the end of April. It was held online, due to the pandemic, and attended by students from professional dance schools based in Athens, Thessaloniki, Ioannina and Larissa. It included educational sessions by Sofia Mavragani on choreography, development of choreographic ideas and their conversion into performing material, as well as sessions by Chrysanthi Badeka on filming, digital presentation and evolution of choreographic elements, using a camera as the key tool. Through this two-month programme of short dance works, the students learnt ways of utilizing the creative performance of their work and their artistic identity in video format, which is nowadays an important instrument to ascertain their progress through educational institutions, choreographic centres and festivals.
