In 1988 musician/composer Peter Lodwick and dancer/choreographer Marit Krogeide started the company Stage Productions. They changed name to Dans & Toner in 1996. Their basic idea of producing and performing  untraditional music- and danceperformances, is developed from Peter Lodwicks  company "Brobyggere" (1974).

Dans & Toner felt the need to embrace a wider audience than the established theatres and dance companies had hitherto reached. Because Norway does not have a long tradition in performing arts, it is of vital importance to create a public. Dans & Toner have therefore made a point of giving many of their performances in schools, thereby reaching people that would not normally have the opportunity to see dance theatre.

Dans & Toner have a reputation for making untraditional performances where the barriers between the different performing arts are broken down and combined in new and interesting ways. The performances are often made up of shorter ballets by different choreographers and in different dancestyles, with specially created music. Humour, drama, film, text, song and dialog with the public are some of the tools used to grip and hold the interest of the audience. We have an ambition to retain a high artistic quality, while at the same time engaging the audience. Our 13 productions has been  performed for hundreds of thousands of people over the whole of Norway. Se performances

We have co-operated with established Norwegian cultural organisations and have received financial support from various national artistic funding organisations. The value of the work done by Dans & Toner has been confirmed by the exceptionally good reviews from press, audience and arrangers.

We also offer courses in PilatesRhythm in Lodwicktechnique and Classisk ballet, advanced levels
