Dance classes Academy Stage Activities Cultural Education


DANCE is a performing ART!
That is why the lessons assume that performances are given in a real theater, such as a City Hall, Philharmonic or Toneelschuur. That will be professional dance shows, where only the dancers are amateur. We work with professional teachers and choreographers and the costumes and decors are provided by professional people.

Buitenstaanders, dance performance

Inspired by the story of 'Philemon and Baucis' by the Roman poet Ovidius, 9 dancers from the Dans Vooropleiding (14-16 years) of Danshuis Haarlem wondered about their hospitality. And with this dance performance they also want to ask the same question to their audience.
What does hospitality mean to you?

Jungle en de Metaverse
Students performance Saturday 25 June


Danshuis Haarlem is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and after 2 years of chatting in parks and on bridges, we are going to celebrate that in our beautiful Schouwburg! All dancers from 4 years old go on stage and we bring 2 stories to each performance.

The first story 'Jungle', danced by our youngest dancers up to 11 years old, is an adaptation by Roby Roest of the famous Jungle Book. Mowgli meets all his familiar friends (and enemies) in the jungles of India, but also encounters new animals and characters!

Then the youngsters and adults perform the piece entitled 'Metaverse'. The screenplay is by Rimke Saan and Haya Maëla The Metaverse is an ultimate online space and is currently in full development at major Tech companies such as Meta and Roblox. The Metaverse is a digital environment in which you can lose yourself completely. Challenging, stimulating and affirming....or not? And can this Metaverse compete with the real world?

Date: Saturday 25 June 2022
Time: 11.00 AM en 3.30 PM
Location: Stadsschouwburg Haarlem, Wilsonsplein 23 2011 VG Haarlem

The dance performance Diary 44 45 tells the story of the 19-year-old resistance woman Hetty van der Togt. She has kept a diary of her experiences in prisons, during transports and in the labor camp near Dachau. This diary was only found by her children after her death.


Choreographer Maëla and the dancers went in search of the people behind the names. How did they manage to survive under the appalling conditions? What does friendship mean and when do you choose yourself? And how do you pick up your life again if you survived it?
