HJS Summer Intensive 2023

 Monday 10 July – Friday 28 July

With a broad program of activities, the Amsterdam Summer Intensive 2023 offers you a great dance experience in one of the world’s most beautiful and cultured cities. During these 3 weeks you can take classes and workshops in a diverse range of styles and techniques, ranging from repertoire to co-creation and improvisation- see the list below. Also there will be informal sharings each Fridays, possibilities to share your work in the weekly Summer Solos program. Watch performances at the Julidans Festival, Over het IJ Festival, and the Vondelpark Open Air Theater Meet and network with your international colleagues in the weekly Get-Together’s with drinks and snacks. We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Registration will open end of February or sooner…

The Summer Intensive program is organized for professional-level dancers and students in their last years of a dance academy or professionally-oriented school. To join workshops you must make an account and share with us your dance video and biography. (This will be possible when the registration is open). We will approve your participation if you have the level required for your chosen workshop(s). 
So make sure you already have that beautiful dance video set up & ready!!
