Federation of International Dance Festivals (FIDAF) Malaysia has set its roots as a regulatory body for arts and culture in Malaysia. The director of FIDAF Malaysia and FIDAF ASIA, Mohamed Noor Rosli Baharom has envisioned great things about FIDAF Malaysia. However, in order to formally introduce this new organization, Mohamed Noor Rosli needs a platform to call out performing arts group from all over the country to join hands. What better way than to announce it at the prestigious Festival of Colours of the World (FESCO) 2016. FESCO is a national dancing competition held by the Co-Curriculum Unit (Arts & Culture ) of Student Support Services Department Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS since 2008 and still going strong. Dance groups from public to private universities and even schools around Malaysia have participated in this dance competition and this year would be the ninth FESCO.

During a FESCO Seminar on the 15th of April 2016, 18 institutions agreed to be members under FIDAF Malaysia, and FIDAF Malaysia was officiated during FESCO 2016 opening remarks on 16th April 2016 at Chancellor Hall, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS.
