About the program
“Dance Energy” is a great cultural project that promoted and supported the talents of the students of the choreography high school Floria Capsali in Bucharest, initiated by the PRAIS Foundation, with Razvan Mazilu in February 2007.
The program aimed at raising awareness among the public with regard to the poor material condition of choreography high-schools and raising funds for their endowment with teaching materials meant to create better learning conditions for the pupils. Furthermore, the project aimed at promoting contemporary dance and the young talents who study this art in the Romanian schools.
The project started with the Extraordinary Contemporary Dance Performance, ”Razvan Mazilu and Friends”, which took place on March 12th, 2007 on the stage of the Romanian Opera House.
Razvan Mazilu’s guests included: Talia Paz dancers from Israel, Claudia Martins and Rafael Carriço from Portugal, Monica Petrica and Adrian Stoian from Romania, soprano Felicia Filip, actress Maia Morgenstern, Johnny Raducanu, A.G.Weinberger and Mihaela Radulescu, as presenter.
DANCE ENERGY was possible due to the involvement of Bucharest National Opera House and sponsors: Prigat, Vodafone and Volvo, which decided to support this cause. The event benefited from the support of JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel.
