This year the traditional Codarts Introduction Days took place from Monday 21 august till Thursday 24 August. All first year music, dance and circus students were given a warm welcome on Monday by the Executive board, Wilma Franchimon (president) and Samuel Wuersten (member). After that they explored (a part) of the city and visited the information market about housing, insurances and much more.
On Tuesday the students gathered at the Fenixloods II, the circus location of Codarts at Katendrecht. Head of Student Life Stephanie Keizer and Head of Codarts Research Janine Stubbe gave a presentation about Student Life and the Student Life Monitor. At 11 o’clock it was time for action! Tai Chi teacher warmed the students up with a balanced work-out. In the afternoon Carlo Balemans and Annemiek Wijers started the cross-over project: small groups with music, dance and circus students make a multi disciplinary performance which they present the next day at the WMDC (the jazz, pop and world music location of Codarts). The performances were great and divers! (see the photos below).
On Thursday students met their fellow classmates and staff.
