BACKGROUND


The BIWD was founded in February 26th, 2016 in Washington DC in United States, when no global system regulated the world dance industry, the investment, and the business relationships of the industrial sector of dance.

Without waiting for participation of governments, the founders of the BIWD acted on their conviction that the private sector is the best qualified to establish global standards for cultural business.

We call ourselves as “The industrialists of peace”
