Report on the visit of the Fini Dance Festival in Villapiana 2018 from ACD-president Tatjana Christelbauer:

Civilian actors in motion for Sustainable Development Goals SDGs!

This year, I have been invited as a guest of honor to join the Fini Dance Festival and to announce the ACD-Ambassador Award for Antonio Fini within the festival ceremony in Altomonte, Calabria/IT. 
The Fini Festival has been initiated in 2010 by Antonio Fini, my colleague from Martha Graham Contemporary Dance School in NYC.
The ambitious endeavor of Antonio Fini brought students and professional dancers and teachers from the European countries, the US, Japan, to spend summer holidays in his homeplace located on the picturesque coast in Villapiana, Calabria /It. 
Enjoying the sea, summer spirits, healthy fruits, domestic culinary, and nature around, the students (starting from elementary level, participating with their parents) had the opportunity to enjoy their holidays, to learn, and also to show their progress on the final Gala events.
This summer, the final Gala event took part in a neighborhood, in the ancient theatre at the ancient hill town Altomonte. Antonio Fini has widened the local cooperation and has established partnerships not only for the purpose of art but also for tourism and cultural exchange. 
I had the opportunity to take part as one of the jury members and enjoy the variety of professionally composed and performed artistic expressions. 
The event was fulfilled with impressive energy, vitality, and joyful experiences shared by dancers, their teachers, organizers, and audiences who came to join the Festival ceremony from various regions and countries.
The program was composed of performances led by children, youth, and adult professionals. In a variety of dance styles, creations of youngsters, Antonio Fini performed with the Michel Mao Dance Company as a principal dancer. 
The local press has announced and reflected on the Festival as one of the most attractive international meetings in the region.

During the ceremony in Altomonte, I have received an Award of Honour for engagement in the field of dance arts for Peace, for my engagement and advocacy for dance arts in the field of cultural Diplomacy.
Within the three days visit to Villapiana (July 20th-23rd 2018), I had the opportunity to meet students from Italy, Bulgaria, Romania, the USA, Albania, Slovenia, ... and to work with them in two-hour composition classes on modern dance syllabus, phonetic exercises, and movement translations. Best impressions and responses have been shared and documented in short videos, by foto images and written letters.
