NDT Young Creatives


NDT Young Creatives puts you in the shoes of a dancer and choreographer. What inspires a choreographer? What choices are made? We zoom in on a choreography from NDT and, in addition to learning repertoire from the performance, learn what it is like to create dance yourself. How do you tell your story? How do you translate an idea into movement? Your creativity will be stimulated and developed!

You will get to work under the guidance of professional teachers and you will be guided in making artistic choices in order to discover new possibilities as a dancer and choreographer.

Young Creatives has been developed for young dance enthusiasts from 8 years old. This project is open to all young dancers and dance enthusiasts who want to create dance together during a workshop or an in-depth intensive.

Young Creatives consists of two programs: Young Creatives workshops & Young Creatives intensives. You can sign up for one or both programs. Below you will find more information about the difference between the two programs and on how to register.

Young Creatives workshops

On six Sundays you can participate in the Young Creatives workshops, each time linked to a different performance by a well-known choreographer or young creator. The Young Creatives workshops zoom in on all aspects of creating a performance, based on the current program of NDT. Each workshop is concluded with a short presentation. These workshops can be booked separately, also seperately from the intensive.
