GODINA : 2017 ( projection )
Complexity of dance expression and social value of dance in modern society has a very special meaning. Today's youth lives in time of high tech gadgets and digital era, always sitting down. This way of life reflects badly on health and proper development.
We want to point the fact that dance significantly improves health and forms many social values, giving sense of freedom, artistic development and has numerous educational values in forming habits and new motoric stereotypes, thus increasing culture. Dance in it's complexity connects art and sport, education and upbringing, contributes to artistic, musical and esthetic development and has a positive effect on motoric space and organizational abilities as well as maintaining speed, strength, flexibility and endurance.
Modern dance has a significant influence on general motoric abilities, balance, coordination, body transformation and gives opportunity for a high level of socialisation.
DANCE FEST NOVI SAD was first time organized on November 8th 2009 without the support of commercial media and sponsors, with high level of enthusiasm and wish to:
- Help develop physically and mentally healthy kids that will have a postive image about themselves and the world that surrounds them
- Create and implement program that will promote and popularize dance, constantly upgrading, educating, connecting everything to a wider audience.
DANCE FEST NOVI SAD has started as a regional festival and in just two years it has become not only important festival in Europe, but in the world.
As an indicator of festival growth, we can take an increasing interest of professional community for participating in festival, so this year we have a jury which consists of international dance experts, which names will be published later on.
DANCE FEST NOVI SAD will be held nine years in a row in sports-recreational center "Vojvodina" (SPENS). The right to participate have all dance studios, schools, groups, or individuals, no matter what country or what dance league or association they come from. This festival welcomes all people of goodwill and positive energy.
