Cultural encounters The young Danish gymnasts are great ambassadors and staying with local host families is highly valued and educational for the team members, the hosts and the community involved. Cultural exchange with local youth at classroom visits is always a great learning experience.

Briefly about the team The team consists of 28 selected and highly skilled gymnasts from all over Denmark. The athletes are 19-28 years old and they participate as volunteers. Several gymnasts have just graduated high school, several work as gymnastic teachers, and many are studying. Being selected to NDPT is a life dream for the gymnasts, who have worked determinedly for many years in order to improve their gymnastic skills and obtain experience as instructors in their local clubs.

Gymnastics in Denmark is mainly a team sport, practiced at all levels for all ages. Gymnastics is one of the major sports in Denmark, and working out of a 150-year tradition you will find community based clubs in every town and city.

We move the world The DGI ambitions reach far beyond Danish borders. National Danish Performance Team (NDPT) contributes to a healthy lifestyle, joy of life and understanding throughout the world. Through our shows and workshops, we want to entertain and inspire to an active lifestyle and strengthen a healthy way of life. An up-to-date tradition National Danish Performance Team originates from a tradition of 80 years of a national gymnastics tour team. The first DGI team started their world tour in 1994, but since then at least 2 million people in more than 70 countries have watched the show. Very special ordinary people The Danish athletes are not professionals, but exceptionally gifted amateurs on an important mission and having the greatest experience of their life. They have grown up with the importance of a healthy diet, exercise and physical activity so that they - more than anybody - are the right people to spread the important message to people of their own age as well as everybody else. They ARE the message. All together They play an important role in their local clubs and other communities on a voluntary basis. They all know the importance of bringing the local community together to celebrate the joy and energy brought about by movement, exercise and activity and that a healthy lifestyle can be fun. Danish when it is best With our performance, we would like to show you the best of Danish gymnastics. We will seek and provide challenges in order to achieve competence and development and we want to create communities in order to obtain cultural and human understanding. We want to be ambassadors for an inclusive, democratic and dynamic sport culture. We speak body language We move the world, and regardless of religion, country, and culture, the benefit from sport and exercise will always be improved health. This is why National Danish Performance Team is today a unique advocate of a health-related message.

Today was an amazing day! The performance this morning was better than my wildest dreams, and workshops throughout the day were inspiring and fun for adults and kids alike. I felt like the whole school lit up by the grace and mastery they displayed in the performance. As we left the gym we were happy, touched and better than when we started – Beauty does this to us”, Lorie Heald, Dance Teacher, Sct. Gregory College Preparatory School, Tucson.
