Dear friends,

Today we have received our Eurodance Trophy and our children are very excited about this.

Once again I would like to express my congratulations to all participating schools for their wonderful performances. All the school have represented their culture through their dances and brought our countries closer. It was really an exciting project and we are looking forward to be continued next year…

Some teachers and students were involved in this project,we have worked as a team and here's the result.
Although it's still so cold outside in Lithuania, we are dreaming about our summer holidays :) Dancing, good mood, new ideas, being together shortens the time :)

Dear friends,
We have finally managed to publish our videos after some problems that we managed to solve. Many of you present a few dances in one video, and your videos are fabulous. We didn't manage to join all our videos together, so we present three separate ones but each is quite short. I hope it's OK. We would like to present you our students performing three Polish and one Ukrainian dance. We hope you are going to enjoy watching our kids dancing :). Good luck to all of you! Greetings from Bielsko-Biała, Poland.

Istituto Comprensivo "Socrate" Italy Tarantella.wmv

Hello! I'm Roberta and I'm in the class 1h. I have been very happy to take part in this adventure,because I think that nothing unites more than music, dance and culture. These three universal values are at the basis of this project, that represents an exciting way to feel united beyond ideological, religious and rational barriers. With eTwinning something magic happened before us: we saw a moltitude of friends of ours, ready to know about us and to let us know all the details about them. In a word, with eTwinning our classrooms have widened, as if by magic, until they have touched and linked with the ones in all the European schools that have joined this project.

We are very happy to show you a little part of our culture. To do that, we have dug in our traditions to learn what "Tarantella" represented for Naples in the last centuries and how it was danced. At the end, with all the material and the support of all our teachers, we have realized this video. Besides the dance, here is our love, the joy to communicate and the certainty we have had a unique and unforgettable experience!

We hope you enjoy our "Tarantella". Thanks to you all ! :)))

Here is the Norwegian entry. We danced at Tomb, an old estate close to our school. Today it serves as an agricultural school. We really enjoyed practising for the dance, and watching the videos from all our partner schools as they kept comming on the blog.
Our first dance is a traditional Norwegian song dance, called "Lasse går i ringen". The dancers tease the person in the circle, because he has no partner. The second dance is an old folk dance, called "Rugen". We whish you all the best of luck, and hope you enjoy our film. Tomorrow we will celebrate the 17th of May in Norway. We will dress up in our national costumes and there will be parades all over Norway, since this is our Constitution Day. We will post some pictures and information about this on the blog later this week. Hope you will celebrate with us, by watching our beautiful pupils all dressed up, just for you!
