Danish Dance Theatre was founded in 1981 and is the foremost and largest contemporary dance company in Denmark. Since 2018, Pontus Lidberg has been the company’s Artistic Director. The company is composed of dancers from all over the world.
The repertoire spans from large stage productions at The Royal Danish Theatre to more intimate productions at smaller venues, as well as open-air events such as Copenhagen Summer Dance in the middle of the Copenhagen Harbour. Danish Dance Theatre also tours both extensively in Denmark and internationally.
Danish Dance Theatre receives funding from the Ministry of Culture. In addition, individual performances receive support from private and public foundations.
