Scapino Ballet Rotterdam and Conny Janssen Danst will open their doors during the summer of 2024. Dance talent from all over the world is invited to take part in an inspiring and groundbreaking programme full of master classes, workshops, classes, lectures and presentations from July 21 to August 2: the Summer Creative.
Two renowned Rotterdam companies, two weeks, one unique opportunity for dancers and dance students. Personal development is the focus of this varied program provided by choreographers, teachers and dancers from both Scapino Ballet Rotterdam and Conny Janssen Danst.
You will be introduced to repertoire from various performances and challenged to new forms of movement. Train your technical dance skills and develop your creativity and individuality as a dancer in various creative processes. Both weeks conclude with a studio presentation.
In addition, many activities outside the curriculum are organised with the aim of bringing participants, dancers, teachers and choreographers of both companies closer together in two intensive weeks.
