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.

In 2021, the jury of Dansersfonds’79 rewareded HJS director Gary Feingold the Special prize 2020 for his valuable contributions to the status of Dutch dance art.

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!

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.

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.

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.
