Philippe Magdelijns

Junior Company

Philippe Magdelijns (18) born in Laguna Hills, California, USA in 2001. Philippe started taking ballet classes when he was 4 years old. His inspiration came from watching his mom in her ballet classes and his love for classical music. He trained at ‘The Professional Ballet School’ in Belmont, CA for 2 years before he moved with his family to the Netherlands where he trained at ballet school ‘Liesbeth Hagenaar’ in ‘s- Hertogenbosch. After a few years of training he was scouted and invited to audition at the Dutch National Ballet Academy in Amsterdam. He was accepted and continued his ballet education at the Dutch National Ballet for 8 years after which he was admitted to the Bachelor program. He is currently in his second year of this program. In 2018, Philippe got awarded a scholarship from Dansersfonds ’79. Throughout his education at the Dutch National Ballet Academy, Philippe performed in many of the Dutch National Ballet productions, such as Cinderella, Romeo and Juliet , Swan Lake and The Nutcracker. Philippe also attended ‘Stage Andrey Klemm’ in France and the ‘Intensive Summer Ballet Workshop’ in Amsterdam. Philippe is really looking forward to joining the Junior Company and continue to grow as a dancer.
