New dance course Contemporary Dance and Performance (working title) postponed for 1 year

PLEASE NOTE! Students can enroll for the Modern Theatre Dance Study Programme (MTD) or the Urban Contemporary (JMD) Study Programme for the coming 2018-2019 academic year. The start of the new ATD dance study programme has been postponed for 1 year.

From the start of the 2019-2020 academic year, our Urban Contemporary (JMD) and Modern Theatre Dance (MTD) programmes will combine forces as the new Contemporary Dance and Performance programme.

Dancers are heroes, daring to express the unexpected. We move art! If you are looking to an exciting future in international dance and performance, in 2019 you can join our new Contemporary Dance and Performance programme.  We will work with you to develop your unique talent in this inspiring and wide-ranging course, exploring everything from Cunningham and flying low to improvisation, hip-hop and capoeira.

Develop your unique talent

This innovative, varied and dynamic programme will prepare you for a life-long career in dance, challenging you and developing you into a performer with an excellent balance of technical and creative skills.

You will work with exceptional teachers who are also practicing professionals, as well as with international guest performers, choreographers and performance practitioners. We will nurture your individuality, desires, choices, vibes and capacities.


We will challenge you to develop your unique talent and individual voice within an international dance community, and help you become an active participant in artistic processes and in society. Together, we will redefine dance and performance in Amsterdam, in Europe and in the rest of the world.

How do the stage and the street influence each other? Explore the latest developments in contemporary and public dance, in techniques and improvisations, in the theatre and in the public space. You will be part of a community that introduces new ways of dance and performance to art and society.
