Ta’ fat om dansen
The conference springs from Dansehallerne’s nationwide project “Ta’ Fat Om Dansen” (Make Dance Matter) supported by the Nordea Foundation. This project has brought community dance activities to thousands of people in Denmark from 2014 to 2017. A number of these cases will be presented during the conference.
