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.

Practical information
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 pascale.price@ndt.nl.

Educational material before a performance
For our performances we can supply digital teaching materials on request. The teaching materials consist of a digital instruction manual for teachers and a hand-out for pupils. To request the teaching materials please send an e-mail to movein@ndt.nl.

Educational combination
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.
Dates /  On request  
Location / At NDT
Suitable for / Higher general secondary education and pre-university education

NDT 2 danst - To the performance
You are sitting on the edge of your seat, then the lights go down. The curtain goes up and you wait with bated breath. You hear the audience laugh at the oddities performed by the dancers, cheers during the soaring jumps and a loud 'whooo' when two dancers embrace each other passionately. Perhaps you will even shine yourself on stage for a moment… There are two performances for  primary schools in The Hague on 8 October 2013 and performances for schools near The Hague on 17 and 18 March 2014. Each school that comes to a performance will be prepared for the visit with a digital lesson. It is also possible to extend the project with a tour behind-the-scenes and a dance workshop at school.

Danswerk - A visit to NDT
During a dance performance the dancers are in the spotlight. But there are plenty of other people who are working hard to put a dance performance on the stage. For example, who takes care of that special lighting on stage? Where does the music you hear in the theatre come from? And where do the dancers get those beautiful outfits? During ‘Dancewerk’ pupils experience how much concentration, strength and body awareness it takes to be able to dance, but above all the joy that dance can give you. In addition we pay attention to the various professions in a dance company such as the choreographer, costume designer or lighting technician. We offer the following activities: a dance workshop in our studios, a tour of our theatre and/or an interview with an NDT employee.
Dates / On request
Location / At NDT
Duration / 2-2,5 hours  
Suitable for / Grades 3 through 6, the activity is adapted to the size and level of the group
Prices / €90 per group for the total package (individual tours are €2 per pupil)
