In order to create the best possible framework for both children, the institution, and Dansehallerne’s artists, it is important for us to make each party’s role in the collaboration visible. On this page, you can also find a brief overview of the time range of the various KORA visits and price.
The Responsibility of Dansehallerne
Dansehallerne manages the overall operations of KORA. Dansehallerne selects the companies, produces the KORA performances, and is therefore responsible for the artistic, artisan, and communicative qualities as well as the relevance of the activities. Furthermore, Dansehallerne is responsible for PR material and all financial matters relating to the companies.
This responsibility includes:
- Administering the KORA scheme, including contracts and salaries.
- Contact with the dancers, including negotiation of agreements and contracts.
- Coordinating and paying for the transport and accommodation of dancers.
- Distributing posters and other informative material to contact persons at the schools/day-care centers, provided that the project coordinator has received relevant contact information for contact persons of the schools/child-care centers from the responsible contact person of the relevant municipality.
- Evaluating the KORA scheme in collaboration with the contact person of the municipality.
The Responsibility of the Municipality
The municipality must appoint a contact person who will be in charge of coordinating the municipality’s participation in KORA.
- Communicating the offer to relevant schools and child-care centers.
- Planning and coordinating the dance activities and workshop for participating school/child-care center personnel in collaboration with Dansehallerne.
- Ensuring that each participating school/child-care center has appointed a contact person.
- Being the central point of communication for the contact persons of the schools/child-care centers and handle the contact to and communication with the participating schools/child-care centers.
- Ensuring that the contact person of each school/child-care center is aware of his/her responsibilities – for further detail see “The responsibility of schools/child-care centers”.
- Participating actively in the evaluation of the KORA program, for example by ensuring that the schools/child-care centers evaluate the KORA visit.
The Responsibility of the Contact Person
Each school and/or child-care center visited by KORA must appoint a contact person.
The tasks of the contact person include:
- Communicating with the contact person of the municipality, and possibly also the coordinator of Dansehallerne, about the visit.
- Taking part in the communication with teachers/child-care staff together with a number of colleagues.
- Passing on preparatory material to relevant colleagues.
- Making sure that suitable facilities and sound equipment are available in accordance with the requirements of the company (flyer)
- Preparing the children for their participation in the performance.
- Receiving and greeting the dancers.
- Filling out the evaluation form after the visit.
Any outstanding issues with KODA/GRAMEX lie with the individual school.
