Kylián Dance Center and Library - Prague From the outset, the Foundation was very aware of the disparity between the dance-developments in the countries of the “Communist block” and the “Western part” of Europe. This realization lead to the establishment of the “Kylián Video Library” in Prague in 1991. Within this library there are many recordings of contemporary choreographies created by some of the most interesting internationally renowned personalities. Their works are either digitally recorded, or digitally re-mastered and available to be viewed free of charge. This gave a unique opportunity to the dancers, teachers, choreographers, theoreticians, and critics from this part of Europe to see and experience the latest developments of dance taking place on the other side of the “Iron Curtain”. The Foundation financially supports the Video Library in Prague so that exchange of information between students/teachers of dance and music within the Czech Republic remains possible.
