Visit NDT with your school - activities for secondary education
‘Move in’ organizes a combination of activities for pupils of secondary schools that focus on modern dance and NDT. The goal of all the activities is to acquaint pupils with the art of dance. The point of departure is: to experience dance not only by looking at it and talking about it, but also by moving and creating dance.
Take a look at our programmes for secondary schools and feel free to contact us. We are open to discuss new ideas and suggestions with you. For more information about our activities for secondary schools please contact our school Education representative: Pascale Price +31 - 70 - 88 00 146 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In consultation with ‘Move in’, secondary school teachers are able to put together a custom-made educational programme attuned to the (long-term) curriculum of the school. Every combination of activities is developed for the level of the participating year and the educational aim of the teacher. A combination is always linked to our latest productions and can include the following activities:
*A look inside NDT's home
Welcome to our home! What does our living room look like, and do the dancers really have their own swimming pool? Pupils are escorted through the various spaces of our theatre and they can see what daily life is like at Nederlands Dans Theater.
*A visit to a rehearsal or class on stage or in the studio
One by one the dancers come on stage. To stretch, warm up their muscles, rehearse the steps. The choreographer gives instructions and the concentration is palpable. Quietly take a seat in the otherwise empty theatre and experience the last phase of the creation of a dance piece.
*Meet an employee of NDT
Do our dancers get nervous sometimes too? What is it like to work in the costume department? How do the dancers become so muscular? How large is the stage really? Meet an employee of NDT who can answer all the questions pupils may have about the company.
*A dance workshop
To be a dancer you have to work very hard. It requires discipline, concentration, body awareness, strength, creativity and, above all, enormous willpower and passion. In our workshop you will experience this as you sweat in the studio trying to make combinations with the most beautiful moves. You will also discover that dance can be fun and, above all, will bring you joy.
*Experiencing a dance performance
You take your seat in the theatre, slowly the murmurs around you fade away and you are surrounded by an expectant silence... Be inspired by the dancers on stage and enjoy the power, concentration and technique on display. Pupils prepare at school for their visit to the theatre with the available teaching materials. A school group visit to a performance can only be included via ‘Move in’, in combination with one or more of the activities mentioned above.

A series of lessons at school
Maths, language, geography. There is so much to learn in school! And then you also have a dance class every now and then, you learn a lot from that as well. For instance about working together, listening to each other, and different languages and cultures. Something very different from solving math problems!
Based on the themes ‘Look at me dance’ (kindergarten), ‘Dance languages’ (grades 1 through 3) and ‘World orientation’ (grades 4 through 6), pupils learn in a series of lessons about dancing themselves, creating, observing and making presentations. The series of lessons takes into account the educational aims for primary schools and the development stages of children in the different classes/school levels.
Dates / On request
Location / At school (we need a large, clean space equipped with a TV and a DVD & CD player)
Duration Series of lessons with a minimum of three, and a maximum of five lessons, adapted to the level or year. The series ends with a presentation.
Suitable for / Kindergarten and grades 1 through 6; separate courses for kindergarten, grades 1 through 3, and grades 4 through 6
