Modern Dance Studio Art Design has its own activities in the halls of Culture Palace “Asim Vokshi” in Gjakova.

Modern Dance Studio Art Design has its own activities in the halls of Culture Palace “Asim Vokshi” in Gjakova, on the former pioneer hall located in the basement.

This school, has proven its quality during the past two decades through the territory of Kosova and beyond. This activity is the only cultural activity of this nature in Kosovo.


The situation of this hall requires intervention in many dimensions: Ceiling, walls, entrance, lighting podium as well as some additional requirements listed below, as well as working conditions, which have fallen below each level, walls have been partially demolished, as well as the ceiling has been damaged.



Modern dance school "Art Design" started its operations in 1995 Studio "Art Design" and except that it served as a place where young people will be entertained and educated in the spirit of modern art, it also brought a new spirit in Kosovo culture, that along the years got stretched across the country.

Art design studio for 20 years became the carrier of all major cultural manifestations in Kosovo and beyond, and made a great impact on the entire public.

The Dance Studio is located at the basement part of the facility of Culture Palace "Asim Vokshi" which is a property of the municipality of Gjakova. The culture palace gave us permission to use this space so we can practice the dance studio activities inside the institutional object since the first year after the Kosovo war. 

All what has been required from us is to keep these activities inside the Culture house and to create working conditions by ourselves and also it is our responsibility to take care of any maintenance that the place requires.

The space is part of the Culture palace and it belongs to Gjakova municipality.  We don't pay rent for the space but we provide different dances when it is needed on special occasions. 

The agreement is between the Dance Studio leader and the municipality and as reimbursement we are required to cover with dancing performances all municipality manifestation during the year, for example on the Independence Day, spring Day, Liberation Day, Christmas, Children's Day etcThe contract (agreement) is not limited, with in other words as long as the school exists. This contract has been done after the war and has been kept that way in order to take care of its continuity.

We are three people responsible for diligence of the place: myself, Jeton Vorfi as a Studio leader, my assistant Dani Thaqi and Alma V. Lama as an assistant coordinator who will observe the work of the project.



We are two standard teams, the children's team and the adult team that continually practice for public performances and do this on voluntary basis. The dance studio is an open place for all children and youth who want to be a part of it. 

Since the Modern Studio is not financed by the municipality we are obliged to provide funds on our own to maintain the place and also to take care of dancing costumes for public performances. 

The funds that are provided from these two groups have been used to maintain the Studio, pay its utility and provide the costumes and shoes needed for any performances. The problem we are facing with the studio at the moment is bigger and we can't cover it with the funds accessible from our dancers since the maintenance expenses are much higher than our budget allows us. 




The purpose of this project is to create the necessary conditions for the development of this cultural activity for all the activists who exploit this space.

We are proud and willing to keep this activity, extend it and further advance, but we need your help.

Great Campaign Art Design Gjakova


Muzika është një prej detajeve më të rëndësishme të jetes tonë. Vallëzimi mund të shpalosë gjithçka misterioze që fshihet në muzikë, dhe e ka meritën shtesë që është njerëzor dhe i prekshëm. “Vallëzimi është një poemë ku çdo lëvizje është një fjalë. “

Artan Kepuska

Life is better when you dance. Dancing is like dreaming with your feet. Great campaign.
