The public institute Centre of Contemporary Dance Arts (CCDA) was established in Slovenia in 2011, whose purpose was the strategic expanding of rehearsal infrastructure, the final institutionalisation of contemporary dance and the promotion of its international visibility. Despite noble work from Igor Teršinar and Matjaž Farič as acting managers, the CCDA struggled to address the multitude of problems facing contemporary dance in Slovenia. In 2012, the right-wing government led by Janez Janša abolished CCDA on the grounds of the reducing budgetary expenses. Nevertheless, hope still remains for the revival of the Centre of Contemporary Dance Arts in Slovenia, and the preservation of Slovenia's cultural history.
