End-of-year production by the Dutch National Ballet Academy
For several years now, the Dutch National Ballet Academy’s end-of-year performance has been an exciting, must-see closing event to the ballet season. Under the title Dancers of Tomorrow, the leading international classical ballet academy - the only Dutch dance academy to be affiliated with Dutch National Ballet – is once again presenting an extremely varied programme.
This year, students and pupils of the academy will be appearing in the Dutch premieres of works by David Dawson and Didy Veldman, and in brand new creations by Remi Wörtmeyer, Ken Ossola and Iva Lešić. The programme also includes two challenging classical ballets with large casts: Rachel Beaujean’s wonderful version of Paquita and Ernst Meisner’s vivacious finale ballet Poulenc Suite. The performances of Dancers of Tomorrow will once again have live accompaniment from the Dutch Ballet Orchestra, under chief conductor Matthew Rowe.

‘In what must count as one of the toughest ever years to be a dance student, Dutch National Ballet Academy has somehow inspired their extensive troupe of dancers to produce a top-notch end of the year show (...) students have been kept in fine physical and technical shape and a whole host of new works have been specially created for the occasion’
