NDT Friends

In these times especially, with all measures to combat Covid 19 currently at hand, you make an indispensable contribution to NDT as a Friend. At the same time it is also an interesting moment to be more involved with the company. With the arrival of Emily Molnar, our new artistic director, NDT is moving towards a new artistic direction. Which does justice to the innovative and challenging spirit on which the company is built. An ambitious course, too, with which NDT takes on a significant role in nurturing the future of international contemporary dance for the 21st century with a contemporary approach to dance, research and development of dance artists and a diverse audience. Your help is needed for that. Together with enthusiastic donors and companies and funds, NDT is also making it happen in this unprecedented time. Will you join us?

Starting at € 60 a year, one person can become a Friend. Would you rather become friends as a couple? Starting at € 100 a year, two people can become friends.


  • We regularly digitally show you behind the scenes at NDT, sometimes live with an opportunity for questions, sometimes filmed in advance.
  • In Close Up Magazine you can read inspiring perspectives and in-depth stories about the dance art, dance makers and dancers of NDT (three times a year).
  • We will keep you informed of the live streams of performances and the new season with short updates.


You receive the benefits that come with the friendship you choose. You can find them below.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I become a NDT Friend?

You can already become a Friend starting € 60 per year (NDT Friend duo € 100) or you can donate a higher amount. You can also donate with a gift deed, which gives you a tax benefit. We have set up the Fonds Nederlands Dans Theater for donations of € 1000 or more. More information

Where can I find information about upcoming Friend activities?

Friends will receive invitations to Friend activities by e-mail. Friend activities will also be announced on this website, as well as in the Friend newsletter.

Is my Friend contribution tax-deductible?

Yes, the tax authorities consider your Friend contribution to be a gift. Furthermore, due to the Giving Act, you are also eligible for extra tax benefits by making donations to cultural institutions. Single donations are tax-deductible if the sum of them each year is higher than 1% of your aggregate income with a minimum of 60 euros. There is also a maximum amount; the total amounts of your gifts may not exceed 10% of your aggregate income.

If you wish to reap the maximum benefit of the fiscal advantages, then we suggest that you register your gift as a periodic donation. Periodic donations do not have a fixed minimum or maximum amount. However, there is a condition that states that you must donate the same amount each consecutive year for a period of at least 5 years, and you must register your gift in a donation agreement. Since 2014, it is possible to do so without a notary. The agreement is available for download here. Do you prefer a notarial deed? The mandate is available here. NDT will reimburse you for notarial fees for donations higher than 250 euros.

You can calculate your tax advantage yourself here. You can find more information at www.belastingdienst.nl
