Centre for choreographic development SE.S.TA has been interested in the development of contemporary dance and the related art genres for a long-time. Since 1999 it has been hosting activities not only for professionals but also for the general public including children. The main aim of the organisation is to support contemporary dance in joining the international sphere and starting interdisciplinary cooperation and discussion. SE.S.TA provides the artists with a wide range of projects whose common features are meetings, meetings of different disciplines with different ways of thinking and creating, with other cultures. Thanks to SE.S.TA, many choreographers on the Czech dance scene and also dancers-artists have found their places in the foreign dance groups.
