DansVariation in English


DansVariation is inclusive dance and leadership. 

Studieförbundet Vuxenskolan Stockholm runs DansVariation which is aimed at people with intellectual disabilities.

We offer dance activities, courses and workshops held by our dance leaders with disabilities.

During the years 2018 -2021 DansVariation was a project with funding from Allmänna Arvsfonden  that Studieförbundet Vuxenskolan run in collaboration with Teater Sláva.

The project created a platform for dancers with disabilities to develop their dance skills as well as gain leadership skills in order to teach others. These dance leaders create new role models, which can empower people, promote self-confidence and a greater independence.

In a health perspective DansVariation offers opportunities for physical activity based on joy, body awareness and expression. We also raise the question of norm and inclusion in dance and the arts and challenge stereotypes about what dance is and who can dance.
