The European Project Oportunidance - ”Dance your way to other cultures" was released on January 23rd 2016 at 9 p.m. in a room filled with warmth and pure joy. A long and beautiful journey began that evening for Academia de Studii Economice, Scoala de Dans Oportunidad (Asociatia Club Vertical), Université Libre de Bruxelles, Universidade de Lisboa si Escola Oficial d'Idiomes de Barcelona.
Around one hundred people attended the event, offered us their support and cheerfulness and joined us on the magical dancefloor. A short but comprehensive speech delivered by Roxana Barlea (initiator and main coordinator of the project), two artistic moments performed by Oportunidad Dance School, effervescence and delight coming from the audience – all of these were the ingredients of a lovely evening opening the two-year path of the project.
The participants learned everything about the projects’s objectives as well as its stages of implementation with emphasis on the opportunities they may benefit from. Recognizing the importance of socializing in a European, multicultural environment, they were inquisitive and asked questions, made comments, showed interest in the projects’ activities and expressed their intentions and wish to be actively involved in the activities developed by Oportunidance – ”Dance your way to other cultures".
