DansiT is a regional center for dance in Trondheim and Mid-Norway. The center is set in the city of Trondheim, more precisely in the area called «Svartlamon», near the city center.
DansiT’s main goal is to strengthen and develop the professional dance field in the region, and establish contact between regional, national and international artists and organizations/institutions.
DansiT offers a production space, a residency program, co-productions and various workshops/seminars for dance artists. The DansiT-administration also offers application- and choreographic/dramaturgical consultancy to artists in production.
In addition DansiT promotes, offers and delivers a range of dance-related activities, such as national and international guest performances, touring network, Multiplié dance festival and other public events.
DansiT also focuses on dance film through being the Norwegian partner in the international dance competition 60secondsdance, as well as curating a dance film program as a part of Minimalen Short Film Festival in Trondheim.

Husly Artist Residency is an ecological art project made by the artist Vigdis Haugtrø and Jan de Gier, and could be described as a simple «city-cabin». It’s situated next to the production facilities of DansiT at Svartlamon in Trondheim, with a grocery store and the cafe Ramp Pub & Spiseri nearby. The house is wood-fired and the water is collected inside DansiT, where you also can use the bathroom and laundry facilities. In addition Husly has a small bathroom with a bio toilet and a sink, a living room and a small kitchen in an open space, and a mezzanine with a twin-size bed.
Plié is one of the best known terms in the dance vocabulary. Translated from French to English it means «to bend». By choosing the name Multiplié, we wish to highlight the festival as an arena for bending the art of dance into new and different forms.
Multiplié dance festival challenges preconceptions of what dance can be and of who can perform and choreograph dance. The goal of Multiplié is to create an arena that brings people together, breaks barriers, challenges and surprises, and to build bridges between communities, cultures, bodies and age groups.
Multiplié dance festival is organised by DansiT. The next festival will be held in week 17 – April 2020.

There will not be an open call in 2019, as the partners have taken a year to develop the project and plan the way ahead for 60secondsdance. har partnerne et planleggingsår for å videreutvikle prosjektet og planlegge veien videre for 60secondsdance.
