Jan Zetterberg passed away

1 post in this topic

The director of Dansens Hus (House of Dance) in Stockholm, Sweden, Mr. Jan Zetterberg has passed away after an illness, only 63 years old.

Mr. Zetterberg's own career as a dancer was very short, and an injury put a stop to further dancing. In stead he got involved with Dansens Hus and worked tirelessly as an administrator, teacher, director and mentor. He invited the great international choreographers and companies.

European posters might remember him as the tall man with glasses who used to preside over the jury when the European Broadcasting Union's bi-annual ballet competition was held.

A great loss to the dance scene, both modern and classical, in Sweden and it will not be easy to find another person of such quality and integrity.
