modern dance

Amsterdam has a thriving dance scene and it’s a playground for experts in the field of contemporary dance. Many modern dance productions take place in the Stadsschouwburg and the Dutch National Opera & Ballet, but there are plenty of smaller stages around town, too. Lovers of modern dance should look out for performances by the Nederlands Dans Theater, one of the world’s most innovative modern dance companies, and go from there to discover Amsterdam’s many smaller – but no less exciting – companies.
