The Dance Enthusiasts

Improv for Dance Enthusiasts is a dance collective, on the one hand, organizing weekly dance classes in improvisation, contact improvisation, and partnering, as well as dance jams with live music by local musicians, and on the other hand, working project-based with funding to research the possibilities of improvisation.

We stand for inclusivity and transparency towards our participants and create an open learning environment for both beginners and experienced dance enthusiasts to share their passion for dance.

The collective was formed in 2020 and is run by four foreign artists living in Iceland: Janosch Bela Kratz, Linde Hanna Rongen, Magdalena Tworek, and Yelena Arakelow. We occasionally work with an extended circle of dance facilitators to ensure diversity in teaching.
