Additional information

Choreographers Adriaan Luteijn and Chantal de Vries go back to 1971 for inspiration. In that year friends Ton Wiggers and Hans Focking founded the company Introdans, then still under the name Studio LP It was a time of ideals and possibilities, and also the year the disco emerged. In New York, people from the gay, Latino and black community gathered to dance in safe places, simply because they were not welcome in the ‘regular’ dance clubs. Thus the discotheques and disco music and dance were born.

In addition to dancers from the company, the cast consists of dance professionals from other dance communities, such as urban, show dance, funk and hip-hop. In addition, a dozen non-professional dancers were invited. Dance is for everyone!

Tickets for Pink Panther Party are available in our webshop.

Practical information & safety measures

Safety measures

At Introdans we adhere to the measures laid down by the RIVM to prevent contamination with the coronavirus. That means the following:

  • Always keep 1.5 meters away from other visitors, Introdans staff and dancers. Our building is equipped in such a way that it is always possible to keep a sufficient distance.
  • Use the disinfectant present on arrival to clean your hands.
  • In one or more of the following situations, we request that you do not come to the performance:
  1. You have had one or more of the following (mild) health complaints in the past 24 hours: (nose) cold, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, (minor) cough, shortness of breath,  fever and/or sudden loss of smell or taste.
  2. You currently have a roommate or family member with a fever and/or shortness of breath.
  3. You have taken a positive corona test in the past 7 days.
  4. You have a roommate or family member with whom you had contact less than 14 days ago, while he/she had corona-related health problems.
  5. You are in home isolation because you have had direct contact with someone who has been diagnosed with the coronavirus.

When visiting Pink Panther Party you do not have to show a corona test or vaccination certificate. It is also not mandatory to wear a mouth mask. All visitors are placed at a distance of 1.5 meters from each other. Are you visiting the performance with roommates or family members? Then we’ll make sure you can sit next to each other, without 1,5 meters away. It is not possible to make a seat selection in advance. An Introdans employee will assign you a seat before the start of the performance. This is done in order of arrival.

If you order multiple tickets, we assume that you form a household. If that is not the case, we request that you place a separate order for each household. This way we can ensure that all visitors experience a safe performance.

Entrance and facilities

To avoid crossing other visitors from an earlier performance, we kindly ask you to come to Introdans no earlier than 15 minutes before the start of the performance. On arrival, we ask you to wait outside the building at a distance of 1.5 meters from other visitors. Your ticket will be checked at the main entrance. An Introdans employee will then guide you directly to your seat in the studio theatre. In order to limit movements through our building as much as possible, there is no cloakroom or catering facility. The toilet is safe to visit.
The performance lasts approximately 45 minutes and does not include an intermission.

Return policy

We have a flexible return policy. This means that you can cancel your tickets until 12:00 h on the day of the performance. Please contact our reception at welcome@introdans.nl or 026-3512111. You can then choose to have the paid amount refunded to your account or to donate it to Introdans.

(Wheelchair) accessibility

A limited number of wheelchair spaces are available per performance. Are you attending Pink Panther Party in a wheelchair? Order a wheelchair ticket, so that we can reserve a place for you. Don’t forget to also order a regular ticket if you bring company to the performance.

The performance is also accessible to visitors who have difficulty walking. Please indicate this to an Introdans employee upon arrival, and we will be happy to assign you a suitable seat. In this case, you do not need to book a separate ticket.

Location and parking

Pink Panther Party will take place in the studio theater of Introdans, at Vijfzinnenstraat 82, 6811LN in Arnhem. Our building is within walking distance of Arnhem Central Station. Are you visiting by car? Then we advise you to park in the Arnhem Central Parking Garage (Willemstunnel 1). This parking garage might be busy during late night shopping or on weekends.
