Fonds Nederlands Dans Theater

NDT established the Fonds Nederlands Dans Theater in April 2016. The related objective is to safeguard the company’s two pillars – talent and creation – now and in the future. The only way for NDT to reconfirm, strengthen and further develop its leading position in the national and international dance world is through continual investment. This is why we are delighted to invite you to enter into a long-term relationship with NDT. It will give you the opportunity to get to know the company, the dancers and the choreographers personally and to be part of a dynamic dance community!

Support specific projects
Participating in the Fonds Nederlands Dans Theater enables you to support specific projects in the field of talent and artistic creation. This gives up-and-coming dance talents, the young dancers of NDT 2 and young choreographers the opportunity to further develop their talent and bring it to full fruition. Supporting artistic creation projects makes it possible for our house choreographers and a new generation of dance makers to create groundbreaking choreographies and cross-disciplinary projects.

Caroline Wynaendts-André de la Porte, Member of the Board of Museum Beelden aan Zee::

‘Contributing to the fund ensures continuity and guarantees that young people can continue to develop their talent. I wholeheartedly back this initiative and hope many others will join me in supporting it.’

Involved with the company
You can support a project through a contribution from €1,000.00 a year. The decision is yours as to which project you would like to invest in and the manner in which you wish to be involved with NDT. We offer you a diverse range of possibilities for shaping your involvement as you wish in a way that corresponds with your contribution*.
You can, for example, receive invitations to after-parties at premieres in The Hague attended by the management, dancers and choreographers, join NDT on an away performance, attend rehearsals at NDT’s dance studios, have lunch or dinner with the management, attend presentations of new plans and the results achieved, have your name stated on the NDT website and in the annual report and enjoy personalised ticket booking in the Netherlands or abroad.

(*) The amount of your donation determines your level of involvement in the project of your choice.
Jan Taminiau, fashion designer:

‘Both in the field of fashion and art, passing on knowledge and experience to the next generation gives them the opportunity to, in turn, do things differently. So it is incredibly important to invest in NDT.’

Make an appointment
Our main priority is that your involvement in the Fonds Nederlands Dans Theater matches your wishes. This is why we would like to discuss this with you in person.

Josien Damen, Damen Shipyards Group:

'I believe it’s very important for NDT to be given the opportunity to continually search for new and young talent so it can keep developing new artistic creations. This will enable NDT to continue to exist at the same level tomorrow that it has today and make it possible for people around the world to carry on enjoying their productions.’
