For two years, Ulrika Bergmark, assistant professor at Luleå University of Technology, has worked as a flexite scientist at Piteå municipality. A form of collaboration where the university's research is moved out into society with the aim of building bridges between academia and school activity.
Although research shows that dance strengthens children's communication, empathy and self-esteem, it is often not a prioritized learning process in schools and educational institutions. With this background, parts of the teacher training courses at Luleå University of Technology now choose to invest in dance as an educational tool.
