Events and venue hire

Dansens Hus can be hired for large or small events.

We are in a fantastic location, as close to the Akerselva river as you can get, and right next door to Mathallen in the Vulkan district. We have a beautiful and functional foyer with a bar, the Main Stage for large events and the more intimate Studio Stage. All these rooms can be hired either individually or as a package. We are happy to help create artistic touches if you would like us to.

Our unique network of Norwegian dance artists will make your event a distinctive one.

Do you have something to celebrate, or would you like to hold a small meeting or a launch? 
You can hire the foyer for a party or small event on evenings when there is no performance. We have DJ equipment, easy-to-use microphone system, and the bartender can mix your favourite drinks. You can order from outside caterers who can deliver to the door. Finger-food works best, as we have no kitchen facilities or tableware for you to use.

- It was a magical celebration on Saturday. The team was amazing! Friendly, cool, nothing was too much trouble. They really were a huge plus!
