Danshappening on the red line when the network for dance development in the Stockholm region celebrates Dance Day

By on April 26, 2019

To celebrate Dance Day, Dance on the red line arranges a mobile dance event on April 29, which starts at Liljeholmens galleria, on to Skärholmens torg, Vårby Gård with a finish in Hallunda. Performance Company ReAct! will meet up and guide the audience along the way. During the dance trip with the metro, travelers will have to meet different kinds of dance with examples such as jazz, indian, afrobeat, contemporary and street.

The audience can go all the way or choose to stop at the different places on their own. The dance trip is free but a valid SL ticket is required.

Both professional actors such as ReAct !, and Jelnek participate. Dancers from the Fryshuset, DOCH, the Stockholm Cultural School, the Dansprogrammet, DANSA / SNACKA, Botkyrka Kulturskola, Saraswathy Kalakendra – Usha Balasundaram, the Indian Dance Academy, the Mosaic Theater, Empire Dancers from the Association Expose and Stockholm’s Aesthetic Gymnasium are participating.

Dance on the red line is a network consisting of a number of organizations that work with dance development along the red line of the metro. The idea is to make the dance already visible and make it more accessible to young people in particular. Here you can read more about which parties are included:

The dance day is celebrated internationally every year on April 29th. It was established in 1982 by the International Dance Committee, ITI-UNESCO. The date is Jean-Georges Noverre’s birthday. Noverres was a regenerator of ballet art. The initiative to celebrate Dance Day in Sweden was taken by the Swedish Danish Committee for the Capital of Culture year 1998.
