History of the Dance section

An autonomous section since 1999

The Dance section of the Venice Biennale was established in 1998, as a result of the reform law of the Biennale that year. The American dancer and choreographer Carolyn Carlson was appointed director for the four-year period 1999 - 2002. Before 1998, dance performances presented at the Venice Biennale were part of the Music program.
