DansVariation in English

DansVariation is a project run by Studieförbundet Vuxenskolan in collaboration with Teater Sláva and funded by Allmänna Arvsfonden.

Our goal is for people with learning disabilities to have opportunities for development and work within the dance and culture sector.

The project creates 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.

DansVariation collaborates with Teater Sláva in order to develop courses in dance and leadership for people with learning disabilities. We are passionate about everyone's right to express themselves artistically and develop their creative abilities.

Joy, self- development, artistic quality and inclusion are core values ​​in our practice.

In the City of Stockholm, people in LSS are one of the priority target groups and the need for physical activities is great, especially among people living in group housing. A survey conducted by the City of Stockholm shows this.

DansVariation aims to promote wider health and wellbeing by offering more 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.

We work with adults and young people from the age of 16.

The project is running until 31 march 2021.
