Meet me

Ann Kathrin Røsvik Granhus

is a Norwegian dance artist.

I am from and currently based in Verdal North in Trøndelag, Norway. I have a BA in contemporary dance from Amsterdam School of the Arts, and PPU (practical pedagogical education) from The University of Stavanger, Norway. I have been a freelancer since 2014, working both internationally, nationally, and regionally.

As a performer for others I have so far toured internationally with Don.Gnu Physical Theater - N.A.R.G (DK) and Follow the Vikings Project (GB). In Norway I have worked for Yggdrasil Theater, and Vasen Vasiliev/DansiT. As a pedagogue I have taught all ages from 5 to 15 in different styles and levels in culture/evening schools in Rogaland and Trøndelag Norway.

As a dancer I am active with my own creation and performing them ever since my BA. I have shown my creations at open stages in different regions of Norway. In 21 and 22 I created two full length productions with own creations in my hometown, Verdal, Trøndelag.

Then I am active with film and photo, and have more than 40 photoshoots behind me. I edits all my videos myself.

My perforing, creating and teaching sides of my artistery fuels and strengthens eachother. I see myself as creative soul with many plans and ideas. Always looking for ways to learn develop and share my passion for the art of dance and movement.
