Summer Intensive was very successful!

15 Aug 2012

The last two weeks the Summer Intensive took place; a summer course for 60 talented young dancers from around the world, selected from nearly 400 submissions. In the studios of the Lucent Dance Theatre, the participants got lessons in technique, repertory and composition, from (ex-) dancers of NDT.

Everyone worked hard towards the Open Evening. The audience saw three beautiful new works, by choreographers Natalia Horečna, Lesley Telford and Menghan Lou along and made with the students​​.

There has been lots of laughter, there have been tears, many questions, intensive discussions, moments of pure meditation and new friendships have blossomed. Beautiful moments we shared through dance and NDT.

The Open Evening reflected the time spent together for the last two weeks and showed what the participants have worked on, under guidance of NDT's artistic staff. The activities took place in several areas in Theater aan het Spui, and with a full theatre during the end-presentation of Summer Intensive.
