Ballroom – Workshops and Performance

ŻfinMalta - National Dance Company, under the artistic direction of Paolo Mangiola, in collaboration with Valletta2018, are looking for three performers aged 13 – 18 and three 40+ movers and shakers in order to take part in 2 workshops, leading up to the performance 'Ballroom' for the Valletta 2018 Closing.

Young dreamers, wishful dancers, curious explorers, don't miss the BALLROOM workshops by Chiara Frigo, on the 10th & 11th December 2018 at Żfinmalta Studios.

Are you 13-18 years old or over 40 and interested in dance and theatre? Do you want to participate in a dance theatre performance in Malta's centre of dance production? If you believe time and space don't matter when you dance, you are in the right place.

Chiara Frigo will host a workshop at ŻfinMalta Studios, MCC, Valletta on the 10th and 11th December 2018 based on her performance Ballroom. The workshop will close with a big performance night on the 15th December for the Valletta 2018 closing ceremony. Come and share this experience with Chiara and ŻfinMalta company dancers.

We'll dive into the atmosphere of a ballroom, enriched by pop and contemporary elements and by references to the world of speed dating. Love, passion and desires will be in the air, while whispered words will evoke fond memories, of events that marked everyone's life.

ŻfinMalta - National Dance Company are looking for full availability for 2 full day workshops (10am - 6pm) happening on the 10th and 11th December 2018, as well as full availability on the 14th December (dress rehearsal) and the 15th December (Ballroom performance)

This experience is being offered for free on a first come first served basis. In order to sign up and for further information, send us an email on
