Dance Schools On Stage -concept has been a part of Kuopio Dance Festival’s programme since 2011. The dance school groups selected based on the applications will perform for the festival audience. Both Finnish and international dance schools will be selected to participate. 

Dance Schools on Stage -concept is not a competition, but the purpose is to offer the participating dance schools and the audience a peek into the levels and dance styles of different dance schools. The groups will receive feedback on their performances from the artistic director Riku Lehtopolku and the representative of the Finnish Association of Dance Schools STOPP ry. 

The concept is organized in cooperation with The Association of Dance Institutes in Finland STOPP ry. The association was founded in 1982 to be the nationwide link between Finnish dance schools and to pursue the common interests of them. It has over 80 member institutes, which have more than 40 000 young dancers as students. 

Dance Schools On Stage is hosted by Atte Kilpinen, who is a dancer of Finnish National Ballet.
