Trailer TEN [tour of the Junior Company] | Dutch National Ballet

Junior Company’s 10th anniversary!

We celebrate this anniversary with a special touring programme throughout the Netherlands.
Ten years ago, even the initiators – Ted Brandsen and former artistic director of the Dutch National Ballet Academy Christopher Powney – could never have imagined just how successful the Junior Company would be. The ensemble is in great demand at ballet venues in the Netherlands and abroad. Dancers from all over the world try to secure a place in the group, and more than forty of those who were successful have now moved up to join Dutch National Ballet’s main company.
