DNAWORKS has been working on a multi-year collaboration with the Regional English Language Office of the US Embassy in Budapest. In addition to drama and self-expression workshops at the Roma and Friends Camp in Balatonlelle, DNAWORKS facilitated pedagogy workshops with the teachers of the campers, Artist Roundtable conversations in Budapest, and arts and dialogue sessions at the Lauder/Joint International Jewish Youth Camp in Szarvas. Adam McKinney also taught dance classes for the Bozsik Yvette Dance Company and Mozdulatmuvészeti Stúdio.
Roma and Friends Camp
For three years, DNAWORKS has led drama and self-expression workshops at the Roma and Friends Camp in Balatonlelle, based on the Hip Hop Theatre Initiative methodology. For the past two years, DNAWORKS has also led an annual teacher training workshop with the teachers of the campers, based in critical pedagogy and alternative modes of engaging youth in the classroom.
Dance Classes with Adam McKinney
In Budapest, Adam taught classical ballet company classes for Bozsik Yvette Dance Company, one of Hungary's top contemporary companies. Classes emphasized strong technique through musicality, expressiveness, and developing one's own unique movement quality. Adam also taught Horton dance technique & repertory classes at Mozdulatmuvészeti Stúdio (The Art of Movement Studio) in Budapest.
Artist Roundtable and Lauder/Joint Camp
In 2009 and 2010, Adam and Daniel led Roundtable discussions with local artists in Budapest to discuss the state of performing arts in the US and Hungary. They also led their arts and dialogue programming at the Lauder/Joint International Jewish Youth Camp in Szarvas, "Belonging Everywhere" in 2009 and HaMapah/The Map in 2010.
