Dear Company director/choreographer,
We have recently received a modest grant for our SPRINGPLANK (Springboard) program which aims to help graduates of Amsterdam dance academies help find work in the dance field. We can use part of this grant to help companies looking for dancers to hold their auditions in Amsterdam. In this way, more opportunities become available for dancers here, without them having to travel each time. For the companies or choreographers looking for dancers, the advantage is that we can help pay for studio rental costs and sometimes provide accommodation in our guest house. Furthermore, Amsterdam is a city easily reached from all of Europe and beyond. Of course, the company/choreographer can hold an audition open to all applicants from anywhere and there are no further obligations.
HJS is the main center for freelance dance professionals in the Netherlands and attracts many international dance artists. The audition can sometimes be held in our home studio at Chassé Dance Studios, but we also have other possible locations in Amsterdam where auditions can be held.
We do have a limited amount of funds for this initiative so don’t delay too long in contacting us if you are interested. Please write to:
