Twice every season, NDT stages a performance featuring beautiful and humorous highlights from NDT 2 performance. These performances are created especially for students in the upper years of primary school (Years 5, 6, 7 and 8 in the Dutch education system, or the international equivalent depending on your country).  Prior to the theatre visit all children participate in an NDT dance workshop taught at the school.
