When National Danish Performance Team start up Tour 2020-2021, it will be with a new executive leadership.
The preparations have started and it will be a strong team in charge. The first one hired was team manager Bie Andersen. Bie Andersen, has been part of the recruitment of the new management team, which will consist of 2 choreographers, physical counselor and communications officer.
In 2020-2021 National Danish Performance Team will be travelling with a new show called QUA. QUA will be the name of the show but the content is still at a very early stage. What we know is that the show will be powerful, graceful and spell-binding. The entirety and flow of the performance is supported by colourful costumes, music and expressions. A lot of preparations are already happening and team manager Bie Andersen, is looking forward to all the new tasks.
Behind the scenes
Movement, community and healthy living mean a lot to Bie and has been a driving force in her years as a gymnast, rowing and previous jobs. She looks forward to moving the world with some very dedicated gymnasts.
The dream comes true, where we get the opportunity to spread the message of Danish gymnastics and moving the world together with National Danish Performance Team.

Dinne Fredslund Andersen, Choreographer
Dinne was raised in Ollerup, where gymnastics and community always have been an important part of her life. Dinne was a gymnast on National Danish Performance Team in 2014-2015, which she remembers, as an amazing and very educational experience. Dinne would like to pass on these experiences to the gymnasts on to the team travelling in 2020-2021.
I want to give the gymnasts a sense that they each are important to the team and the show QUA.

Mads will be responsible for National Danish Performance Team's physique.
Mads works as a physiotherapist, and for the past 5 years he has worked with people on many levels, where he handles treatments and rehabilitation of sports-related injuries.
Mads is very interested in physiotherapy and his conviction is that prevention and rehabilitation not have to be 3x15 repetitions, but training can be made more fun, more exciting and challenging without losing the effect.
