Teacher Inger Damsholt has since 2007 been part of the international research group 'Dance in Nordic Spaces', which has made studies that show how dance has developed in the north and how it is influenced by dance outside.

The course is divided into:
- Intimacy Dance of contemporaries
- Scenic dance contemporaries

- Dance and Cultural Theory
- Dance Management with improvisation and choreography

Inger Damsholt focuses on two things in education as the main projects. Togetherness Dance in Denmark and the Nordic region after 1950 and Koreomusikalske relationships.
