Summer Intensive

10 Jan 2012

Approximately  60 selected (pre)professional dancers in the age-range of 14 - 30 years will
visit our company from July 30th until August 11th 2012. Throughout two intensive weeks they will have the opportunity to develop and fine-tune their skills as dance artists. The course is structured upon our artistic vision and objectives as a contemporary dance company. Ultimately this will be an exclusive opportunity for a select group of dancers to experience the knowledge, inspiration and passion of our artistic team as well as working side by side with our dancers.

Nederlands Dans Theater Summer Intensive is a unique experience which will take place in the atmosphere and surroundings of our company’s home. In our studios the participants will take part in a professional and rigorous training program. This program is aimed at the development towards a complete and versatile contemporary dancer and will be overseen by our international artistic team of choreographers and teachers. The repertoire of Nederlands Dans Theater’s resident and associate choreographers form the basis of this two weeks course. This will be combined with the creation of a new work by one of our upcoming Nederlands Dans Theater-affiliated choreographers. The program is completed with ballet classes, Ohad Naharin’s Gaga technique classes and improvisation workshops, creating a structure very similar to the training of our dancers.

To create an even more complete experience, Nederlands Dans Theater Summer Intensive also offers a special auxiliary program including master classes and various discussion topics. All extra activities are related to Nederlands Dans Theater and its history within the field of contemporary dance.
