NEW WORKSHOPS added in the SUMMER INTENSIVE program in week 2 & 3 with;
The City of Amsterdam will be giving 1.8 million Euros’ to create Dance House Amsterdam , and will give over the next years 500.000 Euros to the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts earmarked for freelance dance projects, especially in Dance House. This new dance building will be opened in the second half of 2014 at the area called ' the Overkant' in the former Stork factory in Amsterdam-North. Dansmakers Amsterdam already has their studios there, and after a refurbishment the Henny Jurriens Foundation and ICK Amsterdam will join them.
Flexible programming - only one ballet class (at 9:30) and one contemporary class (11:00) during the first 3 weeks of June -
As a result of the subsidy cuts that HJS has received, we will start in June with flexible programming. In months where less dancers take class (according to our records), we will only offer one ballet class at 9:30 and one contemporary class, at 11:00. This will be the case in the first 3 week of June. The last week of June there will again be two ballet classes (9:30 & 12:45) and one contemporary class (11:00). In the first week of July there will be even more ballet and contemporary classes than usual. Check the summer schedule for details. Periods with less classes will always be announced in advance.
We thank you for your understanding.
Two new workshops have been added in the third week of the summer intensive, and due to the fact that some workshops are already full new ones will soon be added in the second week as well:
New workshops Week 3 (15-19 July):
David Zambrano's Flying Low and Passing Through, taught by Cristina Leitao
Klylian Repertory 2, taught by Karine Guizzo
see workshop page for registration
other new workshops will be announced soon!
A number of foreign dancers will be coming to Amsterdam for the Summer Intensive and will be looking for apartments to rent for a few weeks. Should you be leaving in July and interested in renting your apartment, or room, please contact Savina Marasi email@example.com with the details of dates and prices. She will connect you with the dancers who are looking.

Per informazione nella lingua Italiana:
Starting in January 2013, HJS will receive 40% less subsidy than it presently does. As a result a number of changes will take place:
• Price rise: single class: 10 euros, 10-class pass: 80 euros, 30 day unlimited class pass: 195
• During certain months there will be less classes, please check the website regularly
• The bimonthly flyer will no longer be printed and distributed
• Workshops will be offered in the framework of intensive programs during certain parts of the year, rather than every month.
With these changes we will be able to continue offering high quality training with
international guest teachers, as we have in the past 18 years.
