Rom for Dans

Rom for Dans (RfD) is a venue for dance art, or a meeting place for professionals, students, children, youth and others who work with the art of dance.

Rom for dans is most of all an activity centre for dance, with its main emphasis on education, training and production. But RfD also arranges performances, mostly as a showing and meeting point for those working with dance art projects in the house.

RfD is a competence centre, a venue for production and performance of professional dance art. Research and artistic development are managed, with a particular emphasis on children and youth, who are put on equal footing with professional performers in the work process and onstage.

RfD rents out spaces for independent companies, projects etc, and is a host for Skolen for Samtidsdans (literally: The School for Contemporary Dance), a two year long education option.
