As part of the professional membership, you help to strengthen the industry and build a strong community, where we can benefit from each other’s experience and knowledge and together shape the national dance field – both in front of and behind the scenes.
The professional membership opens up a wide range of offers and benefits, which make your participation in Dansehallerne’s activities more advantageous, and which strengthen your profile, and provide opportunities for professional development.
For DKK 100 / month or DKK 1000 / year, you get the following as a member:
Possibility of free tickets to all the Dansehallerne’s performances
For each performance, several tickets are reserved for our members, and thus you always have the opportunity to experience Dansehallerne’s program. Tickets are booked on a first-come, first-served basis and we will send out an email as soon as the tickets are released. You can reserve a maximum of one ticket per performance.
Free daily training/teaching

How to become a member
We are always open to new members and it just requires a professional profile. You can apply for membership if you meet one of the following criteria:
- You have a professional education in dance and choreography.
- You work with dance and choreography as a profession.
- You have an equivalent background and can strengthen this through merits and experiences.
We want to ensure that professional practitioners can train at a high level within the framework of their expression. Anyone who cannot demonstrate professional practice or who cannot maintain the right level of class can be denied the right to daily training or participation in specific workshops and classes.
If you can nod yes to one of the above, apply by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV and any other relevant information. Please mark the subject field “Professional membership”. You can add jpeg, word documents, and pdf’s in the form. After the signup, we evaluate your application and will let you know how to purchase and get access to your membership card, and how to get started with the membership deal, benefits, etc. We usually respond quickly, but there may be a response time of around 1 week during busy periods.
