A NEW GENERATION OF DANCEMAKERS

Like to meet the choreographers of the future? The annual New Moves programme gives the Dutch National Ballet dancers the opportunity to develop their choreographic talent and present their creations to an inquisitive and adventurous audience. Let us surprise you!

FESTIVE SEASON CLOSE

Enthusiasm among the dancers to contribute to New Moves is always high. Support these up-and-coming Dutch National Ballet choreographers by attending New Moves and join them and the participating dancers with a festive close to the season. Experience the upbeat, virtuosic, comic, serene and moving new ballets. Some are performed by our regular soloists, but also by young Dutch National Ballet dancers who make their first foray into the role of soloist.

New blood
The art of dance cannot survive without new blood. Alongside generations of dancers, new generations of choreographers are needed for the art to develop and flourish. ‘Investing in new choreographic talent is a must’, says Dutch National Ballet artistic director Ted Brandsen.
