Since the early years, innovation has been the only constant factor at NDT. With the arrival of Emily Molnar, Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) is treading new paths in creating the dance company of the future. With a new era, new leadership and a new building, new questions are therefore posed about what dance means today: why do we dance? The creation and presentation of (new) work play a major role in this, but education is also given a more central place under Molnar’s leadership. Since August 2020, Eva Monen has been leading the Talent Development & Education department, which, in close collaboration with her team, develops a new vision on the importance, form and diversity of dance education in which imagination in dance is central. In this article you will gain more insight into the vision and goals set by this ambitious department within NDT.
