Joy of Movement is a way to learn to understand the ideas and trends of contemporary dance on the field, to initiate a debate on choreography and on its sources of inspiration, to come into contact with the cultures of the world thanks to the master classes in the program.
 
Intended for professionals in the field, but also for a public of dance lovers who would like to further their understanding of contemporary dance, the programme includes cycles of master classes with the protagonists of the Festival, a unique opportunity to come into direct contact with the creative tools and processes of today’s masters: Virgilio Sieni, Cristiana Morganti from the Tanztheater Wuppertal, Rosa Barreto and Gilberto Baía of the Balé Teatro Castro Alves, Erna Ómarsdóttir, Wim Vandekeybus, Brock Labrenz from the Forsythe Company, and Koffi Kôkô.
