foto 3  DanzonAre you in the mood for dancing? Just like in the good old days? We have a fantastic opportunity for you to try it again. Our pilot project Come, dance with me…the Danzón will start in March. This is a new initiative from Internationaal Danstheater, our educational partner Dans in School and the foundation Vier het Leven. It is a new initiative for and most of all with senior citizens aged 65 and older.

10 work sessions
Starting on 17 March you’ll take part in 10 dance work sessions. You will create a performance of half an hour during these sessions, under the guidance of two instructors. It will be your very own performance in the spirit of the new Cuban performance Danzón for Internationaal Danstheater, which will be in theaters across the Netherlands from 26 February until 31 May.
The work sessions take place on Thursday mornings from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. from 17 March to 26 May in the Doelenzaal in Amsterdam.

Dance Salon
In addition to the work sessions, we organize a number of open Dance Salons on 28 March and 26 April in the Doelenzaal in Amsterdam. These will give you the opportunity to put what you’ve learned into practice! A dress rehearsal of your own performance will be held during the Friends Afternoon in the Doelenzaal on Sunday afternoon 29 May.
On Monday 30 May we’ll have a fantastic premiere in the Meervaart theatre in Osdorp. This performance will be followed by another Dance Salon.
Everyone age 65 and older is welcome to attend the Dance Salons! So bring your neighbors, friends, partners or family members. Admission is €7,50 including a drink.

The 10 work sessions, the performance and the Dance Salons together cost €22,50, since this is the very first time that we are doing this!
A total of 20 people can take part during this round.

After the overwhelming success of FADO, which was awarded the Public’s Choice Dance Award in 2014, and the acclaimed Crazy Blues, the International Danstheater presents the new performance Danzón, inspired by the eponymous music and dance style in Cuba.

Dancers of the Internationaal Danstheater take you, along with the Cuban pianist and composer Abel Marcel Calderón and his band, to the fascinating world of various Caribbean cultures. Danzón will premiere in the DeLaMar Theatre in Amsterdam on 7 March. A tour through the Netherlands follows.


Coming up:  Kymani, the story of a drummer (6+) will premiere in Belgium in Cultuurcentrum de Adelberg in Lommel on October 10!

Kymani goes on a quest for his roots. He was adopted when he was a young child, and now he lives far away from his country of birth. He grows up in a class with students from different countries and learns about different cultures and traditions, but nowhere he feels at home. He hears Australian and Asian music, sees Irish and Indonesian dance, but only when he hears the drum, it touches his soul. He wants to be a drummer!

The Dutch premiere is on October 25 in theater de Meervaart in Amsterdam. Would you like to be there? Check the schedule and tickets.

Sunday September 6th we present the new season 2015-2016 in the Doelenzaal in Amsterdam. Pieces of FADO, InsiDe-out and the new performance Danzón will be shown. At 16.00h the program begins, at the end we have a toast to the new season. Entrance is free, but please reserve your seats via or by phone: 020 – 623 9112. We hope to see you then!


Entree Diner 21 maartSaturday March 21 the second Entree Diner was organized; an enjoyable evening for business relationships with food, drinks, dance and music. During dinner, dancers and musicians performed fragments of FADO, InsiDe-out and Crazy Blues. It was a successful evening! For pictures you can visit our Facebook page.


Premiere Crazy Blues

Monday the 23th of February was the day we had all been waiting for: the premier of our new production Crazy Blues. After a crowded period of repetitions, our dancers set foot on the stage of the DeLaMar Theater in Amsterdam. The audience was very enthusiastic about the performance. On top of this, our  artistic intendant Jan Linkens and executive director Sophie Lambo had the honor to receive the Danspublieksprijs 2014 for our production FADO. Unfortunately, this great evening had to come to an end, but we are happy to announce that Crazy Blues will be going on tour!

Vijf, zes, zeven èn stap, iedere week opnieuw. Het begint voorzichtig maar al na een paar weken zwieren de deelnemers over de vloer. Schouwburg Ogterop en Gouden Dans u in het theater nodigen ouderen (m/v) van harte uit om mee te doen. Doet u mee? Kijk op voor meer informatie en om u aan te melden.

Het zag er prachtig uit op het grote scherm! En wat een mooie advertenties zaten erbij, vanmiddag bij de uitreiking van de NRC Charity Award 2016 in Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam! Helaas geen award voor ons maar we zijn echt nog steeds heel erg blij dat minstens 750.000 mensen de advertentie in de krant hebben kunnen zien en nog eens bijna 20.000 via Facebook en via alle andere wegen dat hij gedeeld is! Dank aan het NRC, dank aan Kennisbank Filantropie en dank aan de Willem de Kooning Academy, in het bijzonder aan Maarten van de Vijfeijken, Jochem en Mattias. Wij gaan verder dansen! ...
