The Junior Company was established in 2013 to be a stepping stone for young dancers to make the leap from the Dutch National Ballet Academy to Dutch National Ballet. By now, dancers from all over the world apply and each year only a few are selected. They are given a daily program that mirrors that of the main company and will also be called upon to take the stage at large, main productions of Dutch National Ballet.

Past Event: Breaking Down the Nutcracker

In December 2019, the YPC started the holiday season early with the very first Christmas Party of the year. Peaking behind the scenes at both The Nutcracker & The Mouseking and Rossini's La Cenerentola, the Young Patrons mingled with artistic staff, journeyed through rehearsal studios and costume atelliers, and ushered in good cheer at our theatre. See more photos of the event here.
