Meeting and expanding your knowledge with the Nordic dance community

What is Stretch?

The encounter is built on the experience and community that was built during the keðja encounters from 2008 to 2015. STRETCH expands the idea and themes of keðja by stretching skills, the workfield and its structures.

The Nordic dance community expands its professional networks by inviting colleague organisations and professionals from Baltic and European countries to participate.
