In Norway, the International Dance Day has been celebrated since 1999, and numerous events take place in Oslo, as well as other cities.
The Norwegian Embassy in India supports two projects in the field of dance. The first one is Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts based in Bangalore. The second project supported by the Embassy is the Gati Dance Forum. Based in New Delhi, The Gati Dance Forum is a pioneering arts initiative that works in the field of contemporary dance. Founded in 2007, in response to the glaring absence of opportunities and infrastructure for independent dance in India, Gati has consistently searched for avenues to create a sustainable environment for the development of contemporary dance practice in the country. Through such efforts, the embassy hopes to work towards a sustainable model for dance instutions in the years to come. in 1992, Attakkalari is a registered, public charitable trust formed by artistes from different disciplines to help create contexts for contemporary movement arts.
