The official message for Dance Day by CID

29 April 2023

Same as theater, music and plastic arts, dance has its own global organization. In 2023 CID celebrates its 50th anniversary. Rather than describe what CID does, I use the opportunity to say what it does not.

The main difference with all other dance organizations is that CID is not linked to a particular country. It was founded within the UNESCO headquarters, that is on diplomatic grounds where no government has jurisdiction. Thus members are secure that policy will not reflect a single nationality or culture or approach to dance.

CID does not provide dance education, does not organize events, does not sell anything, so it does not compete with its members - it promotes their work and helps them upgrade it.

CID does not have a permanent leadership, it holds elections every four years where all members vote.

It has no representatives, its members are equal and are linked directly to headquarters.

Such unique features constitute the power of CID, it treats dance professionals as real members, not customers.

Our great family will continue to grow in the next 50 years, making you proud and successful.

Prof. Dr. Alkis Raftis

President of the International Dance Council

Borucki's Body Centred Psychotherapy


The body keeps the track

The body records the experiences of a lifetime. From conception on, the body's ability to feel is highly developed. It is the way life unfolds in every living system. Body sensitivity is the basis of cognition of any living being and guarantees its adaptation to the environment. In psychotherapy and Kun Dance we use these sensitive registers to come into contact also with...
