Hi, from Spain!

Hello, we're here, again!
Our school is in a small village in Valencia, Spain. Maybe you know the "fallas", it's a typical Valencian festival when we celebrated the spring. Valencia is on the coast, we can swim in the mediterranean sea every summer and our city is lovely, we invite you to come to Valencia, you would love it!
This year my pupils are 8 & 9 years old and are in 3rd class.
We love dancing, but we're not professional dancers, we're fun people who want to know you, your customs and maybe become friends.
Good luck and let the party begin.

Istituto Statale E.Montale III ALT


This is our class. Here we are in our school garden.









In our school we study many foreign languages, and we love getting in touch with other students all over the world.

We are twenty seventeen-year-old students: fifteen girls and five boys. We love taking part in projects and international initiatives. We have recently taken part in a beautiful Comenius meeting with students coming from eight different countries and we have had a great time with them. Our school is located in Pontedera a small town in the centre of Italy, between Pisa and Florence.

The leaning tower in Pisa is one of our best known symbols.





Our region is really beautiful and we love it very much. It is full of art and lovely landscapes. We decided to take part in this interesting project together with our Ph E. teacher and we are rehearsing very seriously.

Traditional dances however are not really popular among young people in Pontedera. We will send our video to the local authorities too, so we hope to be able to contribute to the revival of traditional dances in Tuscany

"Malhão" (JI Tojais)


Our dance is a popular and simple dance in the north of Portugal.The name "Malhão" probably had its origin in some agricultural instrument and it danced a special choreography, men and women had queude up, face to face. They're approaching and turn away and beat the rhythm with their feet. The end of the dance is when they closed all the wheel and jumped together.

Primary School of R.S. Mouries - Greece

Dear Friends,

Our school is a small school with 85 pupils. The children are 6-12 years old. Also students come from the neighboring villages.

The school is located in the village of Mouries Kilkis. The village is located 50 kilometers from Thessaloniki.

The school building consists of 2 small pieces, which are housed in each of 3 classes but the yard is too big where the kids can play football and basketball. Also there is a computer room in the school.

The dance that will compete is called chasaposervikos. This is a dance, which starts slowly but becomes quicker. Preferred festivals and celebrations, as it is very easy to learn. Face and gait are distinguished for their speed and their flamboyance. Also is directly related with Balkan's dances.
