dance and ballet education in Haarlem


Danshuis Haarlem has been providing an intensive dance education for young dancers from 8 to 18 years old in preparation of a dance academy like Codarts Rotterdam, AHK Amsterdam, ARTEZ Arnhem, Fontys Tilburg and Royal Concervatory of The Hague or an MBO -dance. The dance training includes a Selection Group, Kids-Pre-Education, Pre-Education and Semi-Pro-Class.

" Dance is a beautiful medium ! "

To relax, make your creativity flow, express your feelings, improve your health, to make fun together by working on a performance. But dance is also discovering new opportunities in your own mind, continuing when it becomes difficult, enjoying what you are good at and learning to cope with your limitations. Dance is a language, a way to communicate. We as dance professionals experience this ourselves, but always see this again with our students.

Special program
Danshuis Haarlem offers a special program aimed at stimulating, supervising and training children for which the above elements apply in particular. Most children love to dance, maybe even every day. They also have a clear dance talent like physical possibilities, presentation / performance qualities, perseverance, musicality.
The program consists of an intensive class timetable of up to 6 hours per week (Pre-Education), with emphasis on technique lessons, such as classical ballet and modern dance. The development of their own dance qualities is also achieved by improvisation and composition lessons. The students from 10 years of age do a test lesson during the season, after which a review is followed.

Dance vocational education
Danshuis Haarlem sees it as its task to do, in addition to offering recreational classes, talent development. Since 2006, we offer young people from 12 years of age a Pre-Education program that prepares them to audition for a dance vocational training course. In 2010 we started special classes for children aged 8 and over. In doing so, we seek cooperation with dance vocational training courses, such as the National Ballet Academy and Codarts, to make admission more smooth. In September 2012, the Semi-Pro-Class was started, intended for well-trained dancers who do not intend to make dance their profession, but wish to continue at the highest level and continue develop their talent. That's why we have created the program 'Danshuis Talent Development'.

Check the individual programs below.


This program consists of 4 parts:
1. Selection Group 8-10
2. Kids-Pre-Education 10-12
3. Pre-Education 12+
4. Semi-Pro-Class 15+
Although it's possible to attend per season, the intention will be to follow a multi-annual program.
