SpinnVäxa – inclusive dance groups for children, youth and adults with and without disabilities.
From 2014 to 2018, the education project SpinnVäxa was run in collaboration with Studieförbundet Bilda and funded by Allmänna Arvsfonden. Since Spring 2018, the work with inclusive dance classes for children, youth and adults is run by Dansutbildningen Språng and the collaboration with Danskompaniet Spinn will continue in various forms.
About the education
”In SpinnVäxa, the dancers meet on equal terms in dance groups of different ages. We work from each individual’s unique capabilities, evolving both as individuals and as a group. Our approach towards dance education is simple, and we let curiosity and exploration guide our work forward. We strive for a participatory approach in our classes and we regard the participants as co-creators. We learn to cooperate and be part of a group, while simultaneously training movement, strength, concentration, balance, artistic expression and much more. Our dance technique comes from natural movement patterns and we explore different dance styles, using a wide variety of music. SpinnVäxa is an inclusive dance education where there’s room for all types of bodies and people with and without disabilities. Our aim is that everybody should be able to develop within the art of dance.“
