European projet - MAP TO THE STARS

EUROPEAN PROJET

The project MAP TO THE STARS is an educational project, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, that aims at giving young generations the opportunity to rediscover dance and movement, stimulating creativity of pupils and providing a digital toolkit, to school teachers to integrate dance and movement in their curriculum.

As leader of the project from 2017 to 2019, Ballet National de Marseille (BNM), in cooperation with 3 other European partners, ICK Amsterdam (Amsterdam, The Netherlands), Mercat de les Flors - Casa de la Dansa (Barcelona, Spain) and Explora - Il Museo dei bambini di Roma (Rome, Italy), created a a digital toolkit for school teachers and their pupils, with a focus on primary education, i.e. 8-12 years old children.
 
Under the artistic direction of choreographer Eric Minh Cuong Castaing (Cie Shonen) and in collaboration with the digital developer Manuvo, and teams of dancers and teachers from each country, they developed a mobile application: MAP TO THE STARS (available on Apple/android since June, 2019).

The app MAP TO THE STARS provides interactive and pedagogic resources for teachers without any dance skills to enable them to conduct adapted workshops, thanks to 30 lesson plans published in six languages : English, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Catalan.
Ordered by objectives, with connections to other curricular, all the lesson plans permit children to create individual and collective choreographies as well as creative challenges with other European schools.
