Partners involved in the project

Dance sport club KREATOR Dens

We are a dancing club that promotes latin and standard dances as sport discipline. Not many people know that ballroom dancing is recognized as Dance Sport. Putting the beauty of dance into a competitive format nurtures young people’s sense of achievement and teaches them valuable life lessons in self-discipline, commitment, breaking down barriers, self-expression and teamwork. Our role in the project is to promote skills development through Dance Sport and raise awareness of the work in this area, promote the discipline to various stakeholders, establish cooperation with different local sport clubs and networking. As a club, we have hosted 2 international projects (within the previous Youth in Action) and we are coordinating this international small collaborative partnership.
