A special edition
The Young Talent Project , a unique collaboration between the Dance Department of the Royal Conservatoire (RC) and Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT), had its eight edition this year. With the Young Talent Project, NDT and RC attempt to make a valuble contribution to the bridging period between being a dance student and a professional dancer. Getting a grip on creative processes, the collaboration between choreographer and dancer, and the various movement languages within a company require a certain understanding and empathy. It is therefore essential that in addition to the further development of technical dance skills, the professional development of dance students is guided too. The Young Talent Project plays an important role in providing that information and experience.
We are proud of the collaboration between the Royal Conservatoire and Nederlands Dans Theater and of this process that inspires the students and provides an extra drive for artistic growth. Our thanks go to all – both in front of and behind the scenes – who contributed to this.
Despite the fact that the performances are not open to the public this year, we still want to share the story of this special edition of 2020 with you in this way. On this page you can read what the students worked on during the project, how they experienced this and you will find photos of the project. We hope you enjoy!
