With more than 350 dancers from 36 countries, 18 different workshops, and up to 7 daily classes, the 2015 Amsterdam Summer was the busiest most successful ever. For the first time it was held in one central location, the beautiful Chassé Dance Studios, so dancers could meet each other, network and make new contacts. Not just the numbers were impressive, but from conversations held, it seems that dancers and teachers were very happy with the whole program.

"What motivates me the most as a teacher is to observe how dancers seem to leave my classes feeling better than when they arrived. In other words, feeling healthier and more balanced.”
HJS regularly asks its teachers a number of questions about how they look at dance, teaching and more. This week dance blogger Lisa Kapan talked to ballet teacher Pedro Gomes:
LEAP utilizes the IDOCDE website to communicate its process and results with the project partners and the general public. One of the activities of LEAP is to organize local meetings with local dance teachers or anyone interested in dance education, it has an open structure that welcomes all and any participation.

The Henny Jurriens Foundation in Amsterdam
