The festival has helped develop and nurture contemporary dance by highlighting the creativeness of choreographers and the talent of highly gifted artists. It is held throughout the month of June traces its history to the summer of 1989 when a few dance performances were held at the Prague Cultural Summer by the PKS Agency (Prague Cultural Centre) mainly to entertain tourists. The Ministry of Culture and the Prague Municipal Authority helped Tanec Praha in preserving the dance form. Every passing year had brilliant and unforgettable performances by gifted dancers.
