This was exactly the same emotional transport we experienced as spectators of the original and colorful choreography of the ballet group of the students of the “Liceo Classico G. Perticari”, protagonists of the recent edition of the ”Olimpiadi della Danza", which were held in Bologna on Sunday 16 April. Under the skilful direction of Alessia Verdini and with the coordination of Maria Cristina Mazzaferri, the girls of Liceo Perticari conquered a well-deserved first place away in a wide competition, which saw the participation of about thirty high schools in Italy. Authentic and contagious was the joy for the result coming from patient exercises and tests within the School's Dance Laboratory, which is an example of the stimulating expansion of the training offer.
The spectators, both in presence and from home, were led into the dreamlike atmosphere of the fairy tale with a happy ending, which makes the puppeteer and the puppets protagonists of the metaphor of redemption from the constraint and awe of the lack of free will and the ability to self-determination: an awareness, a backlash that overturns the homogenization and schematism of actions in a breath of freedom and recovery of one's individuality. Or maybe the black puppeteer with the black threads that imprison his victims are the gloomy fears that grip each of us and from which everyone can finally find redemption?
In any way you read it, the choreography of the Liceo Perticari leads the viewer for a few moments into a poetic aura, which combines the technique and skill of the dancers with moments of lyrical imagination and confident optimism in human resources. The excellent result achieved at the Olimpiadi della Danza crowns a school year of passion and commitment on the part of the students, which led them to try their hand at regional and national tests, in the various disciplinary fields, as proof of the uniqueness of the culture and the enchancing potential method of the acquisition and reprocessing.
