Museum of Movement


Welcome to Dansmuseet

Dansmuseet – Museum of Movement is dedicated to world dance, theatre, art and photography from across the globe. The unique collection is based on the life of Rolf de Maré (1888-1964) and his extensive travels. Temporary exhibitions are put on every year. The museum also has a French bistro and a shop with a large selection of dance DVD’s, books and gifts.

The Museum is located on Drottninggatan 17 in Stockholm, near Sergels Torg. Find us

Streetdance performance

November 27th 18:00

Welcome to TUGG, a visually inspiring journey where five street dancers explore the mechanical versus the organic. Inspiration has been drawn from the street styles popping, hip hop, house and modern dance, which brings together the dancers in an interesting and innovating body language. A piece with a lot of community, individuality and movement!
