The Academy of Music and Dance was founded in 1964, initially as an affiliate of the Bulgarian State Conservatory in Sofia. The idea for an outpost in Plovdiv was put forward by the eminent Bulgarian musician Prof. Assen Diamandiev and was met with enthusiastic support by Prof. Vladimir Avramov and Prof. Alexander Neinski, Rectors of the Bulgarian State Conservatory. In the next eight years the Plovdiv outpost grew substantially and 1972 became an independent institution under the name of Higher Institute of Music and Music Pedagogy. In the same year, degrees in Bulgarian folklore music were introduced into the curriculum, making the Institute the first and only school of higher learning in Bulgaria to offer such degrees. Prof. Assen Diamandiev was appointed as the Institute’s first Rector.Training in Bulgarian folklore choreography was introduced in 1975, but it took twenty years before in 1995 the Institute was formally renamed to Academy of Music and Dance. Visual arts were introduced in the mid-90-ies completing the range of art degrees offered. Prof. Nedyalcho Todorov (1979-83), Prof. Gheorghi Kunev (1983-89, 1997-99) and Prof. Ivan Spassov (1989-96) succeeded Prof. Assen Diamandiev as Rectors. Prof. Anastas Slavchev has been the Academy’s Rector since 1999. Following the political and social changes in 1989, the Academy of Music and Dance was one of the first Bulgarian institutions of higher learning to receive full state accreditation (1998). Since 1964 more than 5 000 students have graduated from the Academy.
