MTP Movement is a dance movement that started during the pandemic with the aim of connecting dancers from all over the world through online dance classes. With this, we wanted to get closer to the atmosphere and energy to make it as “normal” as possible in these strange times. MTP stands for Matevž Česen, Tian Ćehić and Petra Ravbar - choreographers, dancers and founders of the movement. Each letter also has a meaning: M - movement, T - technique and P - passion. These are the qualities that should define every dancer. And this is exactly the purpose of the movement - to bring dancers closer to different qualities of movement, through great technique and through telling a story with our passion and love for dance.
