Join the 1-on-1 dance meetings

Choreographer and dancer Jade van den Hout is looking for 24 people who want to be part of her research. ‘Cracking the shell of dance’ is a search for the origin of the motivation to dance. She invites various local residents, to join her in the studio for a 1-hour dance meeting.

Why do we dance?
What does dance mean for you?
What rhythms make you dance?

These exchanges form an essential part of her creative process where at a later stage she will work towards a solo presentation. Everyone is welcome to join; children, teenagers, adults, elderly, with or without experience, who are curious and interested in participating.

– A one-time individual session of 1 hour with Jade, where we will work on the research question in an informal way, we do this through both dancing and talking
