About

The Regional Dance Centre of Ostrobothnia

The Regional Dance Centre of Ostrobothnia has since its inauguration in 2010 been operating in three Ostrobothnian regions,  Ostrobothnia, Southern Ostrobothnia and Central Ostrobothnia. The Dance Centre is bilingual and works equally in Swedish and Finnish. 

 

The Association Pohjanmaa tanssi ry, Dans i Österbotten rf manages the Dance Centre with the aim to develop dance art, improve employment opportunities for professional dance artists and make dance art accessible. 

 

The Regional Dance Centre arranges performances, touring performances , seminars, workshops, acts as a regional expert of dance and supplier of dance services and activities. The aim is to make dance art more accessible, to offer art and culture experiences equally to all inhabitants in the three Ostrobothnian regions regardless of place of residence or socioeconomic status, to promote well-being through dance and that dance as an experience reaches a wider audience.

 

The Regional Dance Centre collaborates closely in the region with dance professionals and other dance organisations, the regional councils and the cities and the cultural institutions and organisations.
