About DWS

What is DWS?


With the rapid changes taking place in world cultures, a lot of humankind´s  cultural patrimony is getting lost.  Hundreds of longstanding, traditional dances and the music that goes along with them, connected with specific ways of life, are now in danger of extinction.

Dances of the World Society is a network of individuals and organizations that support Puela Lunaris’ work in Saving  Dances and Music in Danger of Extinction by documenting them in their natural environment, through audio-visual media and new technologies.

Dances of the World Society’s purpose also includes a commitment to celebrate and support cultural diversity, in order to facilitate intercultural respect and understanding among people.
