The European Dancehouse Network is the umbrella organization for 17 of the 20 modul-dance project partners. All the dancehouses cooperate through this project, funded by the European Commission through its Culture Programme, to support development, mobility and exchange for dance artists.
In the framework of the project, the festivals present various selected artists participating in the program, at one venue, by one of the project partners.
Since the beginning of the project in 2010, 8 dancehouses organised modul-dance festivals being, each of them, a unique model. We present you 3 of them.
