From the International Dance Council/UNESCO:

21st World Congress on Dance Research

"Dancers without frontiers"

Athens, Greece, 5-9 September 2007

This is the largest gathering of dance specialists world-wide, the best opportunity to showcase one's work to a wide audience of practitioners, dance teachers, choreographers, researchers, journalists and organizers.

Last year, 700 specialists from 65 countries took part.

All forms of dance are represented. Strictly non-profit. Not to be confused with festivals, workshops, competitions or open conferences.

Under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Education, the Municipality of Athens and the National UNESCO Commission.

The congress is organized by the Dora Stratou Dance Theater and the Greek Section IOFA, in collaboration with the International Dance Council CID. Its theme is in accordance with the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions adopted by the UNESCO General Conference.

The program includes:

  • Presentation and discussion of original research reports (papers)

  • Classes, lecture-demonstrations, video projections

  • Performances by dance companies, duos or solos

  • Exhibitions and sale of books, records, pictures, costumes, accessories etc.

  • Visits to places of special interest, such as dance schools, museums, sites etc.

  • Evenings where members can discuss in a relaxed setting.

While intended primarily for professionals, it is at the same time a trade fair and a participatory event, facilitating contacts with colleagues, informal discussions and individual initiative.

Submitting a presentation (research report, lecture-demonstration, class, performance, exhibition, projection) is optional. For each presentation a text must be sent before 30 July 2007.

Absentee delegates can register also; their presentations will appear in the printed program and will be included in the proceedings.

To apply for a visa and/or financial assistance, registered participants receive an official certificate of registration signed by the President of CID. Please make arrangements as early as possible.
