European projects

A recent 4-year Creative Europe-co-funded endeavour is the DANCE ON PASS ON DREAM ON project (2016–2019) led by the Diehl+Ritter NGO from Germany. It is focused on the artistic excellence of the mature, older dancer. The partners of the project – next to the Nomad Dance Academy Slovenia – come from the Republic of Serbia, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK.

The project aimed to develop a model for a sustainable artistic career, stimulate new educational and artistic methods and strive for a change in perception of age through new formats of audience participation of senior citizens.

The next Creative Europe co-funded project was Life Long Burning – Towards a sustainable Eco-System for Contemporary Dance in Europe (2018–2022).

In 2020, the project "(NON)ALIGNED MOVEMENTS Strengthening contemporary dance in Western Balkans" was selected on the Creative Europe special Western Balkans call. Nomad Dance Academy Slovenia will join partners Lokomotiva (MK), Nomad Dance Academy Bulgaria (BG), Tanzfabrik Kreuzberg GUG (DE) and project leader Station Service for Contemporary Dance (RS) in the effort to infuse the Western Balkans region with a stronger contemporary dance scene.
