CDAS Association

Društvo za sodobni ples (DSPS)
The Contemporary Dance Association Slovenia (CDAS)

The first initiatives for the foundation of such an association appeared already in the mid-1980s, but the Contemporary Dance Association Slovenia was not founded until May 1994. The Association operates as a professional association of active contemporary dance professionals at the national level; for a long time, it operated as an association in public interest in the field of culture.

The Contemporary Dance Association Slovenia (CDAS) is a voluntary association of professionals in the field of contemporary dance in Slovenia (dancers, choreographers, pedagogues, theoreticians and critics) whose aim is to form and realise their professional interests: the establishment of a space for communication, raising awareness, building a tradition of contemporary dance in Slovenia and an all-round development of the area of contemporary dance and the conditions for professional creative activities in Slovenia.
