Dansmuseet – Museum of Movement



Dansmuseet is the world’s first museum of dance and movement. The founder Rolf de Maré (1888–1964), travelled all over the world collecting artefacts and documenting dance in all its various forms. Dansmuseet houses this unique collection of authentic costumes, instruments, sculpture, puppets, photographs and masks from the dance cultures of Asia, Africa and North America. Also included is a rich collection of items from the Ballets Suédois, a Swedish dance ensemble in Paris directed by de Maré in the 1920s.
