Dance for You
Dance for You by Dans & Toner (1993) was a music and dance concept for youth.
At the webpage of Dans & Toner the following, among other things, is written about Dance for You:
"Dance for You, until now seen by more than 50 000 young people, is a 'concept performance': By that we mean that it is continuously changing - a 'live' performance in the double meaning of the term. The frame is stable, but the choreographies and music within the frame change according to contemporary themes.
Today's version emphasises the theme 'identity'. So this version of the production is different from the one we performed four years ago. The basic idea is to convey dance as an artistic expression to especially composed music with different dance styles. (…)
The composer is the piece's 'maestro', using humour and joy in the interaction with the audience. He improvises a musical piece onsite, based on four notes given him by the audience."

Bjørg Irene Hovde, date unknown, Romsdals Budstikke:
"They conveyed joy, love, passion, frustration, vulnerability and strength. All through dance and music. An impressive, humorous performance giving something to each and every one with its playful concept, good dancers and a convincing Peter Lodwick."
Karianne Jensen, date unknown, Harstad Tidende [Harstad]:
"Beautiful music and enchanting dance from Dans & Toner!"
Åsgeir Størdal, date unknown, Drammens Tidende [Drammen]:
"Spellbound the school pupils! The trio from Dans & Toner spellbound the pupils of the upper secondary school of Åssiden. Not a sound in the auditorium during the performance. This was an expressive and direct performance, communicating with the audience."
