DEAR FRIENDS

Katja Dance Company (KDC) is a Slovenian amateur dance company founded in October 2016 by Mrs. Katja Vidmar as artistic director (high school professor, author, dancer, choreograph) and Albert Podrekar as executive director and producer. 

KDC is following three main non-profit drivers:

  • Using the media of dance art to raise awareness on important areas of everyday lives, which seriously impact our social and living environment;•    

  • Provide infrastructure to artists, who seek to live and develop their art and expression in the dancing domain on the stage while offering to theatres / stages and the audience a qualitative performing content;

  • To donate income from ticket sales to humanitarian organisations and causes

 

Let us join forces! We are inviting you to become a part of our memorable family.
