Our goal is to keep alive the interest for classical ballet, for the repertoire and for the important history and culture related to it.

In our fast-moving times' which promote impatience, teaching to the young generation values such as study, commitment, perseverance is clearly difficult.
That's why we rely on the professionalism and the example of great artists and Teachers that thanks to their own commitment and perseverance obtained great results over the years.

We are very keen on this project wich, beyond his cultural importance, not only in the means of deepening the knowledge of dance but also as an opportunity for students to interact with each other and their different habits, cultures, religions, etc..., is offered at a very affordable price, unusual in the dance world.

Costs are very low thanks to the generosity of the artists engaged. Everything has made the project less heavy for the families of students that each year participate to the project.

"There are more than 7 billion people in the world. 3 billion reside in urban areas and produce 1.3 billion tons of solid waste every year.
In 2025, waste production will rise to 2.2 billion tons per year.
125 million tons of plastics are produced annually. 80% become waste. 80% of plastic waste reaches the sea through rivers, the rest by boats. Due to the currents, there are 5 large islands of waste in the oceans. The satellites do not detect the plastic islands due to the smallness of the debris. No state recognizes waste as its own and does not take care of removing it. "
