Rabalderdans offers creative dance and movement classes for preschool-aged children.
You can register on a weekly basis via Eventbrite.
Through guided improvisation and exercises, we explore different types of music, play with movement, and discover what we can do with our bodies. Movement and dance – “the language of the body” – are the focus of our play and interaction.
Children can wear their regular clothes, and it’s great if they can be barefoot. Adults are welcome to dance along with the children when there is space.
Rabalderdans is supported by the Culture Unit in Trondheim municipality and DansiT. It’s run by Ingeborg Dugstad Sanders, Betty Nilsen, and Svetlana Stokke in collaboration with a team of educators.
Tuesdays – 17.00 – 17.45

PRAXIS Trondheim is an initiative by and for dance artists based in Trondheim, inspired by PRAXIS Oslo. By sharing artistic practices through weekly classes and workshops, PRAXIS offers a platform for exchange, discussion, and movement exercises. PRAXIS is also open to experienced movement practitioners from disciplines other than dance.
PRAXIS Trondheim is organized by Karoline Bergh Ellingsen, Gunhild Løhre, Anna Thu Schmidt and Nina Wollny.
ImproDans Trondheim aims to offer an open, free, and safe space for movement and sound exploration based on dance, music, and contact improvisation for artists from all disciplines, as well as movement and sound enthusiasts in Trondheim. The project consists of three parts: ImproJam, ImproLab, and ImproStunt.
ImproJam is improvisational dance for adults, and no previous experience is required. Participants can dance as much as they want, and the class begins with a guided warm-up followed by jamming. Here, you can explore movements alone or with others. Different bodies with different experiences come together to dance, and we are inspired by each other’s creativity and love for dance.
ImproLab offers workshops in improvisational dance with a special focus on the intersection between movement and music, so that participants can move in and out of the roles of musicians and dancers. The events start with a guided workshop by Anna Thu Schmidt in collaboration with invited musicians, followed by an open jam.
ImproJam og ImproLab The course is taught in English/Norwegian by Anna Thu Schmidt. The events on DansiT is free
