The Kraków Dance Theatre (Krakowski Teatr Tańca) is a dance theatre that evolved in 2008 from the GRUPAboso Dance Theatre (founded in 1996) and works under the artistic direction of Eryk Makohon at the Nowa Huta Centre of Culture in Kraków, Poland.

In 2008 the Krakowski Teatr Tańca GRUPAboso Association was established, whose aim is to support the artistic and educational activities of the Theatre.

In 2010 the METAphysical Laboratory was established as the source of new dancers. The students-dancers of the Laboratory have become the guest dancers of the Theatre and they have an opportunity to create their own choreographies with a professional support.

Some of the company's awards were won at: the Tychy Theatre Meetings (2007, 2009), the Polish Contemporary Dance Confrontation in Konin (2009), the Polish edition of the Solo & Duo Dance Festival (2009 and 2010). Additionally, the company represented Poland at the 13th Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean, which took place in May 2008 in Bari (Italy).
