We are focused to ensure that as many children as possible will be given the opportunity to see great dance!
In 1999 Lisa Spets founded ZebraDans, the first dance venue for kids and a production company created for dance performances exclusively for children and youths.
Our mission is to give the young audiences as good supply of dance as the adult viewers.
ZebraDans produce, initiate, arrange, tours and make knowledge-sharing ”assignments”. Our target groups range from infants to teenagers and we reach them through their families, preschools and schools.
ZebraDans has a stage in central Stockholm and ”Pop-up” venues at various locations in the suburbs of Stockholm. We offer a wide range of qualitative dance performances with many different scenic expressions. 2014 we had about 110 performances at our stage and reached about 5200 children and youths in the area of Stockholm.
We produce our own shows and have been working together with the best Swedish choreographers, dancers, musicians and set designers in our field of work. We produce 1 – 3 performances a year. We make it possible for choreographers and dance groups to meet their audience, create contact surfaces between different art forms, and we work for a stable creative environment.
Every year we tour in Stockholm, Sweden and world wide. During the last couple of years we have been visiting various festivals and markets in many different countries such as for example Italy, Russia, Canada, South Korea and many more. 2015 we will attend a Nordic – Baltic festival in Latvia and some other festivals.
We always work on a wide rang of projects and are always interested in both national and international collaborations, that´s how we develop and that´s how we can get new fresh ideas for the future. 2014 and 2015 we are working together with a School for disabled kids in Stockholm and developing a rather big collaboration financed by the Creative Europe.
