THE STORY

THE STORY

Choreography Department is a dynamic ecosystem, which acts as a platform for production, presentation and contextualization of dance in contemporary arts.

MANIFESTO

We believe dance is a conscious expression of our human experience, vital to the evolution and transformation of free societies. It’s both an impressive force for good, and a catalyst of innovative spirits. Dance and its artists are the lifeblood of our ethos and the inspiration behind our journey.

THE STORY

Choreography Department Association was launched in 2011 by a team of young Romanian choreographers, whose main purpose was to promote emerging dance artists to larger audiences. Its extended portfolio of activities reached and involved more than 150 artists, 70 dance performances and thousands of local and international dance audiences.

Since then, the organization has evolved constantly, due to the creative energies of its members.

Choreography Department is now a dynamic ecosystem, which acts as a platform for production, presentation and contextualization of dance in contemporary arts. Be it for existing or new, local or global audiences. Regardless of age, sex, nationality, cultural background, skills and training.

Stand up from the bench

Education as the basis of professionalization and evolution. This thought enlivened our dance education program, tailored for students from professional ballet high schools and children from state’s schools.

In the first phase, we worked with 32 dance students from the Choreography High School “Floria Capsali” – Bucharest and Arts HighSchool “Octavian Stroia” – Cluj to create a contemporary dance performance: “Collide”.
