Interview with Lenna Schouten, dance teacher at NDT
The Talent Development & Education department is committed to organizing events and activities that focus on experiencing dance in all possible ways. The Uitblinkers! project offers its participants, young talents of dance between seven and twelve years of age, the opportunity to discover their own unique talents and to develop them, placing emphasis on creativity, imagination, corporeal awareness, or musicality.
During each season, the participants get together at NDT once a month on Saturdays for project mornings, for which dance workshops and in-person meetings with dancers and other members of the company are organized. The participants and their families also visit a NDT performance each season. Uitblinkers! offers young talents a special opportunity to further deepen their development. The project focuses on personalized attention and coaching.
