DansiS is an association with members. It is registered in The Brønnøysund Register Centre. DansiS is led by the board, which is the highest authority between the annual assemblies. Work to get an administration in place during 2011 is under way.

DansiS is to facilitate promoting of professional dance art and dance artists in the region, and to facilitate interaction with the audience through workshops, open performances of works in progress, and discussions related to dance art. DansiS aims to be a supportive production apparatus, but shall not take part in producing or coproducing. Instead it will facilitate increased production through offering rehearsal studios for dance and to work for collaboration with other institutions in the region. Eventually DansiS wants to provide residences for visiting artists and companies.

The tasks of DansiS are supporting and strengthening the field of dance art in Stavanger and the rest of the county of Rogaland through:

-        Being an arena for networking

-       Being an impulse contributing to diversity and collaboration within performing dance arts in Rogaland

-       Doing information work

-       Building competence through classes, courses and workshops

-       Being a supportive production apparatus for choreographers and companies, and working for increased production of performances

-       Working to realise a rehearsal studio/venue for dance, including an office and a residence, plus administrating the above when it becomes a reality

-       Coordinating Proda Stavanger (professional dance training)
