Hankkeen kesto

01.09.2019 - 31.12.2020



NYSTEP is a dance pedagogic project which aims to utilize dance to promote youth co-creation in cultural productions. The project approaches dance pedagogy from a socio-cultural viewpoint and encourages communal sharing of knowledge in accordance to the pedagogic philosophy adopted by Hip Hop called “Each One Teach One”. Dance forms in NYSTEP will be based on Hip Hop and possibly other closely related street dance forms.

In the light of the current global situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been changes made to the implementation of the project. Restrictions to travelling across national borders has made our network of mentors more significant than originally imagined. Neither university student nor mentors will be travelling overseas but each university will have a local camp week that is in tight connection to the other universities through shared online content. Content will be streamed from all three universities and participation will be interactive.
