Dance Program Class of 2018

The second year of the motion*s Dance Program Berlin, under the direction of Lia Pavlidis and Stella Caric.

This year is particularly special as, although a few have been training at motion*s for many years, the majority of the participants came from various European regions and met for the first time on the program. Nevertheless, the group has been “thick as thieves” from the beginning. Their openness towards each other and the closeness that resulted from it ensured that all the students began to develop their potential and grow together from the beginning. This was evident through their impressive and courageous performance at their first small show in front of family and friends in December 2017.
