Project support

Continued education for professionals

Continuing education for professionals in the field of dance is organized every year. The form and content are often developed in consultation with professionals through Danscentrum Norr and additional direct contact with those not affiliated. The goal for Dans i Västerbotten’s efforts is for professionals to be stimulated for further development within their respective areas of knowledge.

Continuing education is organized annually in cooperation with the dance consultants in the northern counties to enable meetings between professionals in the north. Stay updated on upcoming continuing education and workshops via the calendar here on the website.

Residencies in Västerbotten

Being in residency means that the choreographer and dancers come and work for all or part of the work at a selected location that is not their home. The goal is for a learning and fruitful exchange to occur between both parties. Dans i Västerbotten has the opportunity to offer residencies annually in cooperation with other organizations. Contact Dans i Västerbotten if you are interested in obtaining a residency in Västerbotten.
