The 32nd International World Congress on Dance Research will take place in San Marino, at the heart of Italy from 27 June to 1 July 2012.


This year organisers expect the CID-UNESCO World Congress will bring together around 500 delegates from 40 nations.  While intended primarily for professionals, it is at the same time a trade fair and a participatory event, facilitating contacts among colleagues in view of international cooperation projects.

The programme 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.

The International Dance Coucil was founded within the UNESCO headquarters in 1973 and is the official umbrella organisation for all forms of dance in all countries of the world.  CID represents the art of dance in general and advises the UNESCO, national and local government agencies, international organisations and institutions.
