About me

My name is Thordis Björg Stefánsdóttir and I am an Icelandic dancer living in Stockholm. This is my digital portfolio.

I have been dancing ballet, contemporary dance and jazz in The Icelandic Art school of Dance and JSB Dance and Art school in Iceland from a young age. Now my main focus is to explore the different qualities in jazz dance and what it contains. Choreography and teaching has also been a big part in my dance process and right now I am studying the three years bachelor program in Dance pedagogy at the University of Dance and Circus in Stockholm.
