NDT Summer Intensive
NDT Summer Intensive 2014
A two week summercourse for (pre)professional dancers.
Registration for NDT Summer Intensive 2014 closed as of 7 April.
NDT Summer Intensive is a unique experience which takes place in the atmosphere and surroundings of our company’s home. In our studios you will take part in an intensive training program comprised of our company repertoire, workshops new composition and classes focused on dance technique. We offer a professional training program aimed at developing yourself as a versatile contemporary dancer, which will be overseen by our international artistic team of choreographers and teachers. The repertoire of NDT’s resident and associate choreographers forms the basis of this two weeks course. In this edition we will be focusing on the repertoire by Paul Lightfoot & Sol León and Crystal Pite. This will be combined with your participation in the creation of a new work by an NDT-affiliated choreographer. The program is completed with ballet classes, Ohad Naharin’s Gaga technique classes and improvisation workshops, creating a structure very similar to the training of our own dancers. Ultimately this will be an exclusive opportunity for a select group of dancers to experience the knowledge, inspiration and passion of our artistic team as well as working side by side with our dancers.
Next to the daily classes, NDT Summer Intensive offers a special auxiliary program including for example master classes or various discussion topics. All extra activities are related to NDT and/or its history within the field of contemporary dance. This additional aspect of our program will provide you with more in-depth knowledge and, we are certain, will challenge you to further investigate the many layers and perceptions of contemporary dance.

The two week program is especially created for (pre)professional dancers aged 14 till 30 years old. There is a limited amount of 60 places available for the Summer Intensive. NDT’s artistic staff selects the participants based on technical development and creativity.
Because the deadline of 7 April has passed, it is no longer possible to register to audition for NDT Summer Intensive 2014.
We advise everyone who is currently in the audition process to read the terms&conditions and audition procedure carefully. The information will help you during the audition procedure and we will apply the rules as stated in these documents at any stage.
The selected participants for ‘Nederlands Dans Theater Summer Intensive’ will be divided by the artistic staff into three groups: group A, B and C. This division will be made based on age. The choice of content for the classes and the selected repertoire is based on age and level of the participants in each group.

NDT Summer Intensive offers affordable accommodation in The Hague, that is centrally located and within walking distance of our theatre. If you book through NDT for the full two week period (fourteen nights), there is a special discount price that includes a shared room and a shared bathroom. You will share your room with other participants of the NDT Summer Intensive. Check the document 'Accommodation' for more information about the housing possibilities.
NDT offers Scholarships for young talented dancers who need help to finance their participation in the Summer Intensive. To fund these scholarships, NDT works together with sponsors and guest families who generously offer to help by funding the course fee or by opening up their home to accommodate participants during the course.
Unfortunately, we can only offer a limited amount of scholarships. Therefore, if your participation in the course depends on the extra funding, we highly recommend you to also apply for a scholarship elsewhere. We are happy to help you with the application and will offer all the information you need.
A scholarship from NDT funds (part of) the course fee and/or offers housing in a guest home. The scholarships will be appointed by a committee of members of NDT’s artistic staff. The applications will be judged on talent and financial need. Only participants who fulfill both criteria will be considered for a scholarship.
