Introdans celebrates the power of diversity

Welcome to the Introdans HubClub

Introdans celebrates the power of diversity with a contemporary dance programme: the HubClub. The artists of the HubClub are irresistible, guaranteed to blow everyone out of their (wheel)chair. So what’s it about? The HubClub presents a select group of top Dutch dance performers and the evening’s atmosphere is like a nightclub: the audience relaxes at little tables around a dance floor and is treated to acts from diverse/inclusive professional dance art. Besides the Introdans ballet company, the line-up includes performers Redouan Ait Chitt, Misiconi Dance Company, Theaterwerkplaats Tiuri, Ruben Chi and Rutkay Özpinar. What’s more, the HubClub features new work by young artistes Jordy Dik, Nina Funk, Chantal de Vries and Holland Dance Festival/Junadry Leocaria. The HubClub is a showcase of irresistible, attractive, inclusive dance art.


The HubClub is a new production by Introdans in which the Arnhem-based modern ballet company presents the jewels of Dutch inclusive/diverse professional stage dance art to a wide public. It’s inspired by Introdans’ successful Encounters series, which has been running ever since 2001. The Council for Culture views Introdans, a structurally funded dance company, as a leader in the field of inclusion and it recently described the company as follows: Introdans leads the way with its inclusive vision and demonstrates great commitment in the region. The Council also views its inclusive working approach as interesting. Under the motto ‘Everyone can dance’ the company develops interactive projects on the basis of its current repertoire, aimed at education, the social domain, the leisure domain and for fostering talent in society.

Besides Introdans, many other Dutch initiatives have also been doing pioneering work with the aim of professionalising inclusive dance art. Introdans sought contact and exchange with these parties and has invited them to the HubClub. Together these artistes form a colourful mix of humanity: young, old, multicultural, physically/mentally diverse, M/F/X, LHBTQ. Thanks to the unique system of “the deferred theatre ticket”, regular dance fans give other people the chance to attend this evening – so the audience will be just as colourful and diverse as the performers.

The HubClub is an Introdans production. In collaboration with Holland Dance Festival, Zuiderstrandtheater, De Kring Roosendaal, Theaterwerkplaats Tiuri and Stadstheater Arnhem.

The HubClub is also introducing the strikticket (‘ribbon bow ticket’) for admission to the event. This ticket costs €30: the buyer themself gains admission to the HubClub and in addition a second person gets invited to the show by the organisation. So the purchase of a strikticket makes the HubClub accessible to visitors who might otherwise find the threshold of a theatre visit too high (or not yet a natural choice).
