Modern dance talents in Amsterdam
Amsterdam is a fascinating playground for modern dance. At the broadest end of the spectrum, international greats such as Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) can be seen performing in major theatres, playing to 1,500 to 2,000 fans at a time. Led by house choreographers Paul Lightfoot and Sol León, as well as joined by a host of international guest choreographers, both the NDT1 and NDT2 troupes dazzle wherever they take to the stage.
New dance stars
While it's undoubtedly fantastic to have such well-known talents leading the way, the success of modern dance in Amsterdam is that it offers a terrific platform for other experimental troupes (you'll often catch shows by Dutch companies such as Conny Janssen Danst, Anouk van Dijk and Emio Greco | PC), as well as stages and open sessions for the stars of the future. Well known theatres for modern dance include De Brakke Grond, Frascati, Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam and De Meervaart.
