4.3 Local context and complementarity of the project with other regional, national and local policies/ measures/ programmes/ projects: 
In 2009, Albania was recommended as a candidate member in the European Union. However, they still do not reach the EU standard in several areas such as; the economic competitiveness, social inclusion, consolidation of the rule of law, environmental sustainability and physical infrastructures. Albania emerged from a communist rule 25 years ago as one of the poorest countries and most unstable in Europe. Until this day is among the poorest in Europe with a high unemployment rate. Based on the living standard survey, 18.5% of Albanians live below the poverty line, 77.7% of the Roma and 80% of the Egyptians community live below this poverty line. Poverty between the Roma and Egyptian minorities is the result of exclusion, discrimination and a condition to which these vulnerable and marginalised groups have been relegated without the ability to react. There is a lack of gender equality despite the considerable number of women’s NGOs, their political influence continues to be restricted and Equal rights are guaranteed under the Constitution but no reliable official data on minorities is available. Creating Society with Dance will focus on providing a creative platform to deliver professional dance classes and workshops by the lead Choreographers of Society Dance Team and be Supported by the Ministry of culture , The Palace of Sport, Tirana Municipality, University of Sports to access to facilities. This view will allow the culture perspective to facilitate the democratic generation through expression of society’s values and aspiration within creative participation. Focusing on breaking down stereotypical barriers and eliminating unlawful sex discrimination and promoting equality of opportunity between different communities. Giving girls and boys from all community groups’ access to public spaces will allow them to gather and enjoy freedom of expression, which will aim to address segregation and promote intercultural exchange in the area of culture diversity and differences on the daily basis. We will celebrate diversity and work to achieve the creative potential in all young people attending the dance classes and workshops by training and supporting each individual regardless of ethnicity, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation or religion. We ensure that these targeted groups are well informed by liaising with the local civil society and the educational institutions such as the State Agency for the Protection of Children’s Rights will ensure wide outreach to young people from minority communities and marginalised youth from vulnerable groups. To increase participation from all community and minority groups we will also be listing advertisement in the local, radio station and TV station to achieve maximum outreach from targeted groups.
One of the policies implemented In 2006 was the agreement to stabilise and improve its treatment of ethnic minorities in order to bring in line with the EU-wide standards. The Parliamentary Committee on European Integration monitored and held a public hearing on the government’s road map on the opening accession negotiations. It also exercised its oversight role through hearings with the Minister for European Integration. In 2010-2013 Four UN agencies UNDP, UNV, UNICEF and UNFPA have partnered up to implement the programme which aims to empower vulnerable communities in the regional areas of Albania. The aim was to support participation of vulnerable communities in local decision making –through identification of priorities and preparation of Community Development Plans. Following the development priorities identified through Community Based Organisations, the programme works closely with local governments to complete a number of community infrastructure projects, such as roads, health centres, kindergartens, community centres. its also focused on promoting policies and institutional strengthening for social inclusion of vulnerable communities through – capacity building and assistance to local and central government institutions and build capacities of Roma and Egyptian NGOs. The reason why these policies and programs goes hand in hand in supporting in the Creating Society with Dance project is because its already tackling one aspect of the mission we aim to achieve. the policy specifically supports the (Creating Society with Dance) as it has already begun to implement acceptance of help from other EU countries and charities to help support these minority groups. We believe this will support our mission as all minority communities will be more willing to participate in region project such as the Creating Society with Dance Project. This policy and program has already positively impacted the minorities. We will build upon on this by not only focusing on supporting minority groups but also by encouraging gender equality, social integration between all communities (not just minorities), create entrepreneurs and the help towards the development of dance in Albania.

Activity: 
ACTIVITY 2.1
Description: 
Hip Hop Workshop Hip-hop dance refers to street dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music or that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture. It includes a wide range of styles primarily breaking, locking, and popping which were created in the 1970s and made popular by dance crews in the United States. The television show Soul Train and the 1980s films Breakin', Beat Street, and Wild Style showcased these crews and dance styles in their early stages; therefore, giving hip-hop mainstream exposure. More than 40 years old, hip-hop dance became widely known after the first professional street-based dance crews formed in the 1970s in the United States. The most influential groups were Rock Steady Crew, New York City Breakers, The Lockers, and The Electric Boogaloos who are responsible for the spread of breaking, locking, and popping respectively. The Brooklyn-based dance style uprock influenced breaking early in its development. Boogaloo gained more exposure because it is the namesake of the Electric Boogaloos crew. Uprock, roboting, and boogaloo are respected dance styles but none of them are as mainstream or popular as breaking, locking, and popping. The evolution of hip-hop music, hip-hop social dancing emerged from breaking and the funk styles into different forms. Dances from the 1990s such as the Running Man, the Worm, and the Cabbage Patch entered the mainstream and became fad dances. After the millennium, newer social dances such as the Cha Cha Slide and the Dougie also caught on and became very popular.

Description: 
Locking Workshop The beginning of Locking can be traced to one man, Don Campbell. In the late 1960s he put together several fad dances adding moves of his own (known as the "Lock") when performing. The original lock was created by accident: Don Campbell couldn't do a move called the 'The Funky Chicken' and stopped at a particular point whilst moving his arms, creating a 'locking' effect. Locking (originally Campbellocking) is a style of funk dance, which is today also associated with hip hop. The name is based on the concept of locking movements, which basically means freezing from a fast movement and "locking" in a certain position, holding that position for a short while and then continuing in the same speed as before. It relies on fast and distinct arm and hand movements combined with more relaxed hips and legs. The movements are generally large and exaggerated, and often very rhythmic and tightly synced with the music. Locking is quite performance oriented, often interacting with the audience by smiling or giving them a high five, and some moves are quite comical in nature. A dancer who performs locking is called a locker.
