Young Talent Project

Talent development

On November 26, the Dutch government held a press conference in which new measures were announced to combat the spread of the coronavirus. It was announced that all sectors (including the culture sector) must close their doors from 5 PM to 5 AM from November 28 to December 18.

This means that we are forced to cancel the performances of the Young Talent Project.

As a ticket buyer you will be informed as soon as possible about the settlement of your purchase. We are currently looking for alternatives. You will find more information on the website soon, keep an eye on the theater’s announcements.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. We hope everyone remains safe.

Young Talent Project

Since 2013, Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) and the Royal Conservatoire (RC) have been working together on a unique project: Young Talent Project (YTP). YTP  is a two-way talent development project. On the one hand, YTP gives young dance students of the RC the opportunity to get in contact with the working method of NDT and to further develop their talent as a versatile dancer during the project. On the other hand, the project offers the possibility to (former) NDT dancers to develop themselves as a teacher, repetitor or choreographer within a professional dance institute. Young Talent Project goes beyond just teaching NDT repertoire; for three months, the students are involved in the process of creating a choreography at NDT on a daily basis.

Theater season 2021/2022

The Young Talent Project takes place in September till December. After  months of hard work, the final result is an inspiring presentation that will take place on 2, 3, 4 and 5 December 2021. Students show the NDT repertoire that they have learned and the new creation by Antonin Rioche, Christie Partelow and Paxton Ricketts.

Ticket sales for the presentations will start on Monday, November 8, 2021. Please note: the Blackbox studio is unfortunately not accessible with a wheelchair and more difficult to reach for audiences with walking difficulties. If you have any questions or would like more information about the presentations of the Young Talent Project, please send an email to

The new piece taught me a lot about the expectations of a company dancer and the process of creating a new work.
