Summer School 2021

Coming summer we will organize an online programme for students between 12 and 21 years of age.

During the summer programme students will have the opportunity to audition for the preliminary course or the associate degree programme of Dutch National Ballet Academy.  

When you will apply for  the summer programme you will be able to register for an audition opportunity in the application form. There will be no specific programme when you will apply for the audition opportunity, during the programme our artistic staff will watch several classes and will be able to look at your level and technique.

Amsterdam International Summer School ONLINE / 06 – 10 JULY (5 days)

For ballet students between 12 - 21 years of age

As we have enjoyed our alternative online summer programme in 2020 and our Christmas Course in December we have decided to organize another online in-depth course during the summer.

In collaboration with the Dutch National Ballet, the Dutch National Ballet Academy will organize a live streaming five-day online programme from 6th through 10th of July 2021.

We are able to create a programme for the following groups:

  • 12-14 years old / timeframe of programme 10:00-18:00 o'clock (exact time frame to be decided)/ Amsterdam time zone (UTC +2).
  • 15-21 years old / timeframe of programme 14:00-21:30 o'clock (exact time frame to be decided)/ Amsterdam time zone (UTC +2). If there are a lot of registrations, a second time frame will be determined.

Amsterdam International Summer School LIVE IN STUDIOS IN AMSTERDAM / CANCELLED

For ballet students between 15 – 21 years of age

Unfortunately we had to make the difficult decision to cancel the Amsterdam International Summer School Live in Amsterdam programme. The health of all our students and participants is our first priority, and at this point we do not see how we can provide this safety while organizing a live event in July.

Ernst Meisner says: 
“ I am incredibly sad that the current situation doesn’t allow for us yet to meet live and have classes together in the beautiful studios of Dutch National Ballet. However, I really look forward to working together with yet another group of highly talented and motivated dancers during our Online programme, which involves even more classes than in the past, great teachers and professionals from the work field and an extra opportunity to work on an individual basis. I truly hope meeting you in our Online programme and cannot wait to share our love for dance during this exciting week! “
