The Dance House Lefkosia and Marilena Kyriacou invite you to a series of workshops for teenagers where identity, independence and self-understanding will be at the core of our experience. Teenagers will be encouraged to explore their place in society and the world at large by exploring concepts such as empathy, respect and consent. The aim is to create a safe environment where young people can develop skills and strengthen their personal autonomy. Non-formal learning activities and various art forms such as theatre, film, dance, music, etc. will be used.
