Dutch National Ballet


Dutch National Ballet

Dutch National Ballet (Het Nationale Ballet) was formed in 1961 when the Amsterdams Ballet and the Nederlands Ballet merged. The company has been directed by Sonia Gaskell (1961–1969), Rudi van Dantzig (1969–1991), Wayne Eagling (1991–2003) and is currently directed by Ted Brandsen. It is the largest dance company in the Netherlands and attracts many international artists. The company has been based in the Het Muziektheater, Amsterdam, since 1986. It is a regular guest at major festivals across Europe, such as the Edinburgh Festival. The company is committed to new choreography and performs work from current and past resident choreographers: Rudi van Dantzig, Toer van Schayk, Hans van Manen, Maguy Marin and Édouard Lock.
