FLORENCE DANCE CENTER

Il Florence Dance Center è stato fondato nel 1987 da Marga Nativo, già prima ballerina étoilé del Teatro Comunale di Firenze e da Keith Ferrone.

Il Florence Dance Center è nato nel 1987 con l’obiettivo di creare e far vivere l’esperienza completa di un centro polivalente per l’arte della danza aperto a un vasto pubblico, offrendo inoltre un punto di riferimento socio-culturale. Alla base di un programma completo e aperto a tutti, si trovano, da un lato i valori della tradizione dell’arte della danza che tendono alla conservazione della disciplina della danza classica accademica, e dall’altro quelli, altrettanto importanti, dell’efficace insegnamento della danza contemporanea come linguaggio di oggi. La costante contaminazione con le altre arti, come la musica, la pittura, la fotografia, la scultura e la prosa, offre ai nostri frequentatori e visitatori la possibilità di sentire che la tradizione delle arti è protetta e che, allo stesso tempo, la contemporaneità è effervescente.
