from springboard to independent division of young dancers
Originally brought to life with the purpose of feeding the first company with young talent, NDT 2 was founded in 1978. It has, however, shaped itself into an entirely independent division throughout the decades, attracting renowned choreographers from all over the world that come to create especially for NDT 2 to contribute to its extensive, own repertoire. What hasn’t changed is the company’s focus on the development of the artistic personality of its young dancers.
In a time span of three years, NDT 2 prepares nineteen classically trained dancers by offering a varied repertoire consisting of works. This season, those will be made by established choreographers as well as a new generation of talents. One of the objectives of NDT 2, is to acquaint the dancers with a lexicon of dance languages. Working together with diverse creators, provides the dancers with the opportunity to learn to react quickly to different dance languages, techniques and working methods.
