NDT Summer Intensive
NDT Summer Intensive 2015
A two week summercourse for (pre)professional dancers.
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. 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 specially 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.
