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.
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.
The enthusiasm of the young ballet dancers and new choreographic talent exploded. Cheers rose regularly in the packed auditorium of the National Opera & Ballet building. It was contagious. The auditorium vibrated with positivism'.

"The surprising choreographies and intimate character make New Moves a special experience."
Additionally, New Moves offers company members the chance to explore and develop other talents within the field, such as decor, costume and lighting design, production, technics, marketing and publicity.
In recent years a large number of current and former Dutch National Ballet dancers have, thanks in part to New Moves, made a name for themselves as choreographers. Juanjo Arqués, Daniela Cardim, Monique Duurvoort, Peter Leung, Ernst Meisner, Milena Sidorova and Remi Wörtmeyer have garnered attention with eyecatching new works.
