The 4th year students of the SNDO - School for New Dance Development graduate by creating two works next to writing a thesis and completing their internship. The first works are usually presented in Spring, the second ones in June. These programs take place in venues outside the school offering the students professional working conditions and the artistic context. The Spring works travel to Berlin, to be presented at Uferstudios within the context of an exchange between Berlin based BA program of HZT and SNDO.
This year’s SNDO graduates are Juan Pablo Cámara, Duan Chengbei, Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen, Mao Nakagawa, Estefano Romani, Tea Teearu and Andrea Zavala Folache.
WELCOME TO THE WALRUS
I am she as you are she as you are me
See how they run like frogs from a gun
See how they fly
How is this happening if the dog found the shark?

The SNDO, School for New Dance Development (School voor Nieuwe Dansontwikkeling), is a full time 4-Year professional education course that leads to the diploma Bachelor of Arts. The school educates students to become choreographers/dance makers enabling them to contribute to the development of dance as an art form. In the curriculum, the school sets up the conditions in which the creativity of the student can emerge, where reflection on the specific qualities of dance as an art form is developed and awareness about the body and the artistic implications of working with it precede.
