CYPRUS NEW MOVEMENT
OF DANCE GROUPS,
DANCERS AND CHOREOGRAPHERS
Cyprus New Movement of dance groups, dancers and choreographers was created in 2004 as a non-profit organisation representing the majority of professional dancers and choreographers in Cyprus. It supports and connects professional dancers and choreographers, while aiming towards a wide-ranging promotion of the art of contemporary dance and of Cypriot artists locally as well as abroad, through dance creation in various forms.
Amongst others, New Movement created the Summer Dance Festival, unique in its kind in Cyprus, sponsored annually by the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture.
Cyprus New Movement constantly promotes the art of dance to a wider public, consisting of diverse levels of today’s society. A society that is a part of a European family of open borders, within which constant exchange of arts amongst countries takes place.
As New Movement we aim to create the conditions that allow for Cyprus to become another destination for new Cypriot and European contemporary dance artists, to present their work and share their knowledge. We have a vision of creating new festivals and promoting the educational nature of dance, aiming for innovative ideas to support the professional dance scene of the island.
The committee of New Movement is elected every two years. The current committee consists of Eleana Alexandrou, Chloe Melidou, Arianna Marcoulides, Petros Konnaris and Milena Ugren Koulas.
