Viksjöforsbaletten is a voluntary cultural organisation in the northern countryside of Sweden. The area is at risk of being abandoned (brain drain) and more girls than boys tend to leave due to freetime possibilities (lot of hunting, fishing, forestry hobbies, nature and motor sports, less of possible activies within the arts).
Viksjöforsbaletten focus on physical training (dance), aestethic expression (the art of dance) and inclusion.
In the two past years Viksjöforsbaletten has been involved with integrating newly arrived pupils (up to 40% in Viksjöfors school). When refugee/immigrant children joined classes without spoken words our dance teachers joined the introduction of lessons and after offered the alternative of dancing the curricular subject. So the development of learning Swedish was via bodylanguage. The result of this piloting is very good and now a model in all municipality.
The organisation is a member of Svenska Gymnastikförbundet.
