This 25th Jubilee-year turned out to be a very weird one, as we find ourselves in a new society, with closed studios, until at least 20 May.
This time learns us, more than ever, how important it is to keep connected and be able to communicate with each other.
HJS could never have existed for 25 years if we hadn’t tackled challenges in a creative way before. So we can’t wait to get back to do what we have been doing all these years: offering dance classes and get you moving altogether!
Since Monday 6 April, we have started with one online class, 6 days per week, keep in touch with Facebook / Instagram and our website.

HJS was established in 1995 as a non-profit foundation/stichting in order to provide open training for professional-level dancers, and has since then developed into one of the most important open dance training centers in Europe.

The namesake of the foundation, the late Henny Jurriëns, was one of The Netherlands best known and loved dancers, noted for his kind and generous character. HJS offers dance training the whole year through.

What dancers and teachers say about us

I had a great experience with the HJS organization and wanted to tell you that you are my highlight of the year!!! I will recommend you to dancers aroud me and I hope I will see you soon! 

Milena dancer from Serbia

It’s great that HJS keeps evolving and creates opportunities for the dance scene where no one in Holland has provided it yet. I’m exited to see where it will go!

Jade dancer from The Netherlands

Please keep on offering this great variety of opportunities – I think it is very valuable for aspiring dancers and professional dancers of all kind looking to develop their dancing.

Dancer from Thailand

I’m glad I took classes there, such a nice experience! Thank you to invite all talented teachers giving class and  organizing  it. I’m looking forward to take part in classes again in next year.

Pin-Chen dancer from Taiwan

The organization was fantastic, the level of the dancers was very high and the school was amazing.

Susanna dancer from Italy

De Amsterdam Summer Intensive was een van de meest opwindende en creatieve ervaringen die ik als danser heb gehad. Het werken met betrokken kunstenaars en docenten uit de hele wereld, de verschillende methodieken, de kennismaking met zoveel dansers… het heeft mijn horizon verbreed. Maar daarbovenop ontmoette ik Vittoria de Ferrari, die mij heel goed vond en een auditie voor me regelde bij het fameuze Les Ballets C de la B (Alain Platel). En… ik werd aangenomen! Dank voor HJS die met zijn programma’s niet alleen kansen biedt voor dansers maar hen ook omringt met een zeer grote interesse en zorg.
