The program of International Contemporary Dance Festival - New Baltic Dance consists both of well established companies with famous productions and new young companies/choreographers with experimental works.

One of the principles of the festival is to present the newest productions (usually not more than 12 months old), thus the event is open for premieres, post-premieres, pre-premieres. The festival also provides the possibility for Lithuanian choreographers to show their newest creations (mostly premieres).
