Qiajuk Studios is Greenland’s only dance studio located in the capital Nuuk.

We offer classes in ballet, contemporary, jazz, urban styles and vertical dance. We have a Performance group comprised of young dance artists creating dance experiences at different events.
Greenland is in many ways a country which is hard to get to – a small population and enormous distances makes it expensive to reach, and to find a place to stay in.
