BAILAR LA RESILIENCIA
El laboratorio de flamenco inclusivo propone una nueva didáctica que fomenta la participación, la diversión y la armonía entre los participantes, haciendo frente de esta forma a las dificultades que surgen durante la clase.
Los límites toman diferentes formas, algunos son más visibles, otros menos, pero nos unen con el otro porque son algo común a todos y que nos hacen más humanos. Más información sobre el ciclo de flamenco inclusivo aquí.
