The first ICE HOT Nordic Dance Platform was arranged in Stockholm, Sweden, December 1st–4th, 2010, as a pilot project.
The aim was to create grounds for future collaboration for joint international promotion and export of Nordic dance.

Encouraged by the positive feedback, the second platform was arranged in Helsinki, Finland,  December 12th-15th, 2012. The platform was then decided to be organized every other year, moving between the Nordic countries.

The third ICE HOT Nordic Dance Platform was in Oslo, Norway December 10th-14th, 2014.

The last platform was hosted and organized by Dansehallerne in Copenhagen, Denmark November 30th – December 4th 2016.

The next ICE HOT Nordic Dance Platform will take place in Reykjavik, Iceland December 12th -16th in 2018.


The joint Nordic platform has proved to be successful, which convinced the partners to develop and expand the collaboration concept further.

The unique cooperation model of the five organizations from five different countries with different missions, financial models and structures has raised wide international interest and become an inspiration to other countries in other parts of the world to try and create something similar.
