Founded in 1982 by the publicist Pedro Bianco, Dançar Publishing emerged with the creation of Dançar Magazine – the first Brazilian publication dedicated to dance, which won prestige among critics and professionals in the field.
With a commitment to disseminate dance and its aspects, Dançar Publishing had a pioneering role, by enabling great meetings between professionals and amateurs of dance, not only in Brazil but also in the whole world, among which we can highlight: the creation of the Joinville Festival, Encontro Nacional de Dança (National Dance Meeting), Oficina Contemporânea da Bahia (Contemporary Workshop of Bahia) and Ciclo de Dança de Recife (Dance Cycle of Recife), besides the promotion of memorable tours of national and international companies.
The magazine worked for 10 years, bringing opinions, criticisms and profiles of influential personalities from the world of dance. During the period from 1982 to 1992, more than 2 million copies were produced, with over 10,000 subscribers and distribution throughout Brazil, Portugal and Latin America.

The recognition of its quality led the company to expand its performance for the implementation of some of the most important events in this environment, promoting culture and disseminating professionals, artists and their productions.
With the growth of its representativeness in the cultural scene, the company expanded its activities, becoming curator and director of festivals, tours, exhibitions and tailor-made/proprietary projects. It created in Brazil the concept of sponsorship/co-sponsorships and tailor-made projects platforms, consolidating its activities with the company of cigarettes Souza Cruz and its projects Carlton Dance Festival, Free Jazz Festival and Hollywood Rock.
