Urban Moves - Time for Change!

The festival aims to reflect society as it is today, and we acknowledge the need for change. We need to re-think and we need your help!

With this being said, we invite YOU to help us re-think the name of the festival, the content & also the structures.

Let’s build for the next decade together!
Thank you!

Urban Moves is a key festival in Norway, focusing on dance styles that arose from urban cultures. The festival has been part of the program of Dansens Hus Oslo since 2011. The festival is a platform for jamsessions, battles, talks, workshops, conversations and performances. Working together with curators from the Norwegian hiphop and streetdance scene, the festival has developed into an important voice for artists working within styles such as breaking, hiphop freestyle, locking, popping and house. The festival aims to reflect society as it is today!

The festival will be streamed on zoom. See below for details.
