Global Friends

Friends from all over the world make an essential impact on NDT’s global presence. With more than 70 performances worldwide – from Madrid to Melbourne, New York to Hong Kong, Stuttgart to Singapore - NDT shares its artistry as well as talent development programs with people around the world.

As one of the world’s leading modern ballet (dance) companies, international support is dedicated to ensuring the continuation of breathtaking performances at international festivals and cultural capitals across the globe while at the same time providing students the opportunity to unlock their creative potential through specialised master classes and outreach programs.

By becoming a Global Friend you help make NDTs international tours a reality, now and into the future.

“If you see only one live performance this year, Nederlands Dans Theater is the one to see."

- New York Times

Global Friends receive invitations to selected performances with a pre-show dinner and reception in major cities across the globe; a unique opportunity to meet the extra-ordinary dancers, NDT directors Paul Lightfoot and Janine Dijkmeijer and fellow Global Friends. If wished so, prominent recognition at NDT’s website, season book and yearly report is offered.
