Dans in Trøndelag is a regional competence center for dance.
Dans in Trøndelag conveys and develops projects within the spectrum of professional dance. Our vision is to expand the boundaries of dance art in the district, through quality experiences and creative activities. We have for several years developed, presented and disseminated dance in the northern part of Trøndelag. Dans in Trøndelag also participates to national and international cooperation. Our two biggest projects are “Kortreist Dansefestival”, an annual festival which presents dance for children and youth, and the “IN-AIR (Innherred artist in residence)” residency program which focuses on the creation of a dance production for children and young people.

For Dans i Trøndelag, quality in the residence program IN AIR means: to offer the dancers a professional support mechanism for their productions and artistic practices, according to needs - with predictability, follow-up, good frameworks and professional premises throughout the whole process.
For Dans i Trøndelag, quality in a co-production means: To be a personal, safe and accessible support mechanism which follows up the production at all the phases and areas that have been agreed, but also when the unforeseen happens. To create a good dialogue between dance artists, Turnéteatret in Trøndelag and other relevant partners and show arenas. To contribute to highlighting and communication of the uniqueness of each project.
For Dans i Trøndelag, quality in audience development means: To offer the regional audience with performing arts which they can relate to, to create meetings, and to challenge the public in dialogue and participation.
