For Municipalities and Organizers

KORA provides your municipality with a unique opportunity of exposing children and young people to dance as an art form – as you would present theatre, music, visual arts, and movies. In other words, you can now add dance to the agenda of your cultural strategy, your policies for children and young people, or perhaps even as a strategy for strengthening dance in your municipality.

In KORA, Dansehallerne presents interactive dance performances to children in daycares and to pupils up to age 16. Experiencing the performances, the children will gain a unique perspective on dance as a performative art form and become part of an artistic process in which they are co-creators, discovering new ways for social interaction, and experiencing new forms of expression.

We select skilled Danish and international choreographers to create interactive performances. For the 2022/2023 season, we have 11 companies in the KORA program – with a total of 12 performances for daycares and schools.

“It was amazingly organized. The dancers were highly professional. They succeeded in telling the story and include the students along the way without ever turning it into something similar to classroom teaching. Storytelling at a very high level. For the students, it was a good balance between acting as audience and participating actively in the show. Fun, exciting, and unexpected.”
– Middle school teacher, Hellebækskolen, Helsingør.

In Dansehallerne, we speak of dance as an art form, which contains a multitude of different forms and expressions within an artistic framework. Through this framework, we can express our actions, thoughts, feelings, and consciousness. Artists often work with choreography as a framework concept – as a composition of movement within time and space. Choreography provides tools from which to create movement, and for the analysis of dance.
