Dansens Hus is Norway’s national stage for dance. We present productions covering a broad spectrum of dance, from productions for babies to appearances by major international guest artists, from new Norwegian choreographers to well-established ones. Workshops, master classes, talks by artists, debates and exhibitions are some of what we often offer alongside the productions. We also organise the Urban moves street dance festival, and hip hop courses for children and young people.  We work with other national and international dance companies and organisations.

Major national and international names that have appeared at Dansens Hus in recent years include: Ingun Bjørnsgaard Prosjekt, Zero Visibility/Ina Christel Johannessen, Jo Strømgren Kompani, Hooman Sharifi, WEE, Carte Blanche, Alan Lucien Øyen/Winterguests, Carte Blanche, Oslo Dance Ensemble, GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, CullbergBalletten,Vim Vandekeybus/Ultima Vez, Peeping Tom, Akram Kahn Company, DV8 Physical Theatre, Meg Stuart, Les Ballets C de la B, to name but a few.

Dansens Hus is in the Vulkan area of Oslo, a former industrial district beside the Akerselva river. The building is one of the finest and most modern stage venues in Oslo, with top quality technical equipment. Our main stage can seat an audience of 334, and our studio stage has a maximum capacity of 150. The public areas also include a welcoming and distinctive foyer, and a spacious outdoor area in front of the building’s main entrance. Our neighbours include Mathallen and several attractive hotels, bars and restaurants.
