Skapa dans (Create Dance) is an annual national choreography contest for young persons between the age 14–22. The competition consists of regional finals, at for example Skånes Dansteater, where the winning choreography goes on to the national final in Stockholm. The competitions take place live on stage with an audience. The competition's jury consists of choreographers and dance professionals from all over Sweden.

The purpose of the competition is to encourage the creation of dance and present the creativity and ability within the younger non-professional community involved in dance of various genres and levels. Since the focus is on choreography and not technique all genres and styles are welcome to compete. Skapa Dans is an opportunity for young dance talents to share and connect with the community devoted to dance.
