Skånes Dansteater is a repertory dance company based in Malmö, Sweden. We are Sweden´s largest dance institution and we are funded by the Municipality of Skåne and the City of Malmö. Our main aims and objectives is to promote, strengthen and develop dance as an artform within the region. Principally this is achieved through the work of and performances by the company of professional dancers but also through participation projects which seek to engage the wider population of Skåne, southern Sweden. Skånes Dansteater strives above all for high artistic quality in both the work of its professional company of dancers and the community outreach projects that work in parallel with performances.
Skånes Dansteater have been running Dance for Parkinson workshops since January 2016. The workshops started from an initiative from the SDT dancers Patrick Bragdell and Laura Lohi. In January 2016 David Leventhal from Dance for PD at Mark Morris Dance Group was invited to lead a Dance for PD teacher training course for dancers at Skånes Dansteater. The Dance for Parkinson workshops have been running twice a month with participating numbers steadily growing.
