Contemporary Dance Association


The Contemporary Dance Association was established in 2007 by 25 Lithuanian contemporary dancers and choreographers, who felt the need to organise themselves in order to represent the contemporary dance community and to defend their social and artistic interests.

The mission of the association is to influence cultural policy, thus to ensure and improve working conditions for professional dancers and choreographers, as well as promote contemporary dance in Lithuania. One of the main goals of the Contemporary Dance Association is to collaborate with international cultural institutions, dance organisations, and artists.

Since 2008, it organizes professional dancers’ training, dance workshops, as well as member visits to dance seminars and workshops abroad.
