Take a look behind the scenes


In NDT Now magazine, we invite you to meet a large number of colleagues and take a generous look behind the scenes of the various activities and departments of our special company. The magazine is filled with beautiful photos and interesting interviews. This webpage complements these stories with videos or other information.

Talent development & Education

Watch various videos related to several Talent Development & Education activities organised by NDT below.

NDT Young Creatives

Through NDT Young Creatives, young dance fans become dancers and creators. Under the guidance of dance teachers, they learn how NDT creates a dance performance, what inspires a choreographer and how dance can tell a story. Dance experience is not required for this programme.

Young Talent Project

In 2021, NDT 1 dancer Paxton Ricketts created a new creation with students from Royal Conservatoire Dance. Together with two students, he talked about the process in this video:

NDT Summer Intensive

Laura Mendes showed us what a day at the NDT Summer Intensive 2022 looked like.

Costume department

Normally, the costumes worn by NDT dancers can only be seen from a distance on a stage. Now we zoom in on the smallest details and bring the costumes up close. This way, the craft of the NDT master tailors can be seen even better.

Two troupes

“The performers of Nederlands Dans Theater fuse exacting execution and creative ambition to create grotesque, haunting, and sublime images” klonk de openingszin van Broadway World’s recensie in maart 2020, een dag na de eerste voorstelling van NDT 1 in New York City Center.

Get to know all the dancers below, read their biography and self-written texts for the audience:
