Thursday October 28 in the frame of the Visioni Festival 2021 at the Testoni Ragazzi theater
in Bologna there will be a day of meetings and conversations between delegates, artists and
presenters focused on dance for children.

The meeting is organized by the Assitej Young Dance Network in collaboration with the Festival “Visions of the future, visions of theater 2021”, organized by La Baracca-Testoni Ragazzi of Bologna with the patronage of the International Small-size Network.
