The International Contemporary Dance Festival, “Dance Days Chania” is investing in the people, body, dancer, creator and reminding us that dance is everywhere and concerns us all. Dance is embedded in every big or small movement, in sounds, in music and in silence; in every habit and every desire of our daily lives, of the difficulty as well as the simplicity that is enclosed in actions and thoughts. The festival focuses on the development of diversity, innovation and pluralism.

Emphasis is also given to active community participation and the integration and development of its urban fabric, with site-specific projects, performances and events which take place at various points in the city and comprising its elements.

Dance Days Chania is organized by the “Syn-Kinisi” association of expressive dance, with volunteer work from its members, since 2011, having the Municipality of Chania as co-organizer. In some festivals until today contributed as co-organizers the District of Crete –Region of Chania and KEPPEDICH-CAM. The last years the Festival is supported by national and international foundations and institutions (J.F.Costopoulos Foundation, Fluxum Foundation-Flux Laboratory, American Dance Abroad, e.t.c.) as well as Foreign Embassies. In 2017 the Stavros Niarchos Foundation was Major Sponsor.
DDC has received the EFFE label 2017-2018 and 2019-2020 from the European Organization EFA.

The festival’s program includes performances, workshops, site-specific projects, a video dance section, the section “New creators in the city”, lectures e.t.c.
