Introdans performs worldwide

A diverse and unique repertoire featuring works by world-famous choreographers as well as by new, talented dance makers - that's Introdans. We bring audiences the best, most attractive and most moving works from half a century of dance. Our concept is simple: we showcase pieces by world-famous choreographers as well as creations by up-and-coming choreographic talent. These names include Robert Battle, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Lucinda Childs, Nils Christe, Nacho Duato, Jiří Kylián, José Limon, Hans van Manen, Alwin Nikolaïs, Cayetono Soto and many more (check all choreographers on our website). We think it's vital to keep dance classics alive and lively, and also to present them alongside new creations.

From Asia to America, from Sweden to South Africa

Ever since Introdans was founded in 1971 its mission has remained unchanged: to get a wide public enthusiastic about dance art. We do this by presenting attractive productions for young and old, performed by world-class dancers. And not only in the Netherlands but also far beyond. In recent years we have travelled all over the world, appearing in New York at Fall for Dance and The Joyce Theatre, in South Africa, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Russia to name a few locations. Other highlights included performances at the International Festivals in Bangkok and Edinburgh, Teatralia in Madrid and STEPS in Switzerland.

Workshops and dance projects - everyone can dance! 

Besides dance shows, Introdans also develops workshops and dance projects for all ages. Already got dance experience, or none at all? Everyone can dance! No matter whether participants have been taking dance classes for years or never done a dance movement in their lives, wheter they are 4 or 104. Time and time again, our educational department proves that dance is an universal language and that our professional teachers can get everyone dancing, anywhere in the world. The Introdans repertoire always forms the point of departure for workshops and projects. And so we have danced with children from the slums in South Africa (Durban) and Brazil (Belo Horizonte), with handicapped youngsters in Indonesia and also provided workshops and lectures at dance academies all over the world.

An Introdans show in your theatre or at your festival? 

Introdans can deliver a mix of works by different choreographers or a programme focusing on one world-class choreographer. Thanks to our highly diverse repertoire we can present works with a tableau of up to 15 dancers. From solos to group works, from a single ballet for a gala to a full evening's programme, and of course our professional dance teachers can accompany the ensemble to provide workshops as well.
