Dear guests of NDT Summer Intensive,

Developing talented dancers, by exposing them to the artistic core and work ethic of Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT), and confronting, enriching and engaging aspiring professionals is not only a wonderful opportunity for these sixty hungry artists, but also a joy and shared responsibility for our NDT family and its network.

The NDT Summer Intensive has grown into a significant moment/event of each NDT season where dancers, choreographers, instructors and teachers come together to sink back into the roots of the nature and character of the company to learn from one another and collectively create this evening you are about to be a part of.

We would like to express our appreciation and gratitude to the Education & Talent Development team, financial sponsors, hosts and moral supporters who are big contributors to facilitating this project.

Finally, we hope that for all the participants this has been a time of their lives to remember passionately, and we hope these past two weeks have sparked you even more to keep pushing further to find your expression through the art of dance.

Toi Toi Toi!

Paul Lightfoot
