Talent Development ballet
The Dutch National Ballet and the Dutch National Ballet Academy of the The Amsterdam School of Arts are collaborating on talent development.
Ted Brandsen, the director of The Dutch National Ballet: ‘It’s important that talent development happens at a young age. Our involvement and encouragement can help parents make the choice to send their child to a ballet school. It’s important to note that the Gerrit van der Veen College and Basisschool Olympia in Amsterdam provide schooling, which is tailored to individual needs.’
The Junior Company is the most visible form of the collaboration between the two organisations. Want to know more about the Junior Company, the stepping stone to the Dutch National Ballet?
