Trailer New Moves: dance makers of the future | Dutch National Ballet

Talented new choreographers do not grow on trees, especially in the ballet world. So Dutch National Ballet pulls out all the stops to enthuse and encourage young makers, and to give them opportunities. Besides organising an annual Choreographic Academy – in which promising talents work with dancers from the Junior Company for three weeks – the company also challenges its own dancers and young makers from outside to present their creations to the audience in the New Moves programme.
