Bronze Age dance
In 1999 dancer Anni Brøgger visited The National Museum. As a professional dancer, she was fascinated by the Egtved Girl’s costume, and she believed that the suit, the cord skirt and belt plate, was extremely well suited for dancing. The Bronze Age has performed a variety of ritual dances. In many rock carvings, especially from Bohuslän in western Sweden, we see images that can only be understood as representations of ritual dance where movement was important.
