ORGANIZATION OF EVENTS AND DANCE TRAINING
Why is culture the engine of development?
According to Nod's philosophy, who invests and bets in the wealth of this country is providing a public service.
We think that investing in culture generates new resources. During difficult times, in times of economic crisis, which in our opinion is becoming an identity crisis and a loss of a sense of belonging, culture is the key element with which we can rebuild ourselves.
When we think of culture as an engine for development, we believe that investing in the arts, tourism, and in opportunities that this country has to offer is the key for supporting this country’s development.
is to promote excellence in Dance in Italy: we strive to incorporate a wide range of Artist bringing their up to date contemporary dance technique repertory from the international dance scene with 360 dance training .

From September to June some of the biggest names have been gathered.
