SpinnUnga is an internship and dance education for young dancers with and without disabilities.
Between 2014 and 2018, the education project SpinnUnga was run in collaboration with Studieförbundet Bilda and funded by Allmänna Arvsfonden. Since Spring 2018, the internship and higher dance education for disabled and non-disabled young dancers is run by Dansutbildningen Språng and the collaboration with Danskompaniet Spinn will continue in various forms.
”SpinnUnga is an internship and a higher dance education for disabled and non-disabled young dancers with previous dance experience. Our foundation is contemporary dance, but the participants also come in contact with other dance styles through guest teachers. Our starting point in the classes is who we are as individuals, where everyone learns different tools for working artistically in an integrated group. With SpinnUnga we challenge what an artistic education can be by breaking the norms regarding the dancing body. The SpinnUnga dancers are also offered mentoring by dancers from Danskompaniet Spinn as a way of aiding them in their continued development.“
