Meet the stars of the future

Every year, the most talented young ballet dancers are selected for the Junior Company of the Dutch National Ballet from more than 700 applications from all over the world. This ensemble regularly dances in the productions of the “big” company, but since its foundation in 2013, it has also been very successful every season with its own tour programmes. This season it is Shooting Stars, a programme that includes both classics and exciting, contemporary world premieres.

More than forty percent of the Dutch National Ballet now consists of former dancers from the Junior Company, including seven second soloists and one first soloist. So if you want to get to know the stars of the future, Shooting Stars is the right programme.

Swan Lake and Ballet 101

This dance is the classic “Pas de Six” from former artistic director Rudi van Dantzig’s widely acclaimed version of Swan Lake. A choreography that demands a flawless performance and a strong charisma. Also demanding is Ballet 101, a comical but technically very challenging boys' solo by the Canadian choreographer Eric Gauthier. In his choreography, Gauthier uses the basic positions of classical, academic ballet, which he shows in the usual order in the first movement, but then mixes together with a big wink, culminating in a surprising ending.

World Premieres

In addition, Shooting Stars contains no fewer than three world premieres by promising young choreographers. The first new work is by the Ukrainian-Dutch choreographer and dancer Milena Sidorova, who was appointed “Young Creative Associate” of the Dutch National Ballet last year. Sidorova already has more than 25 works to her name and with her Hold On, created via Zoom - to the song of the same name by the Dutch band DI-RECT - she scored a huge hit during the first corona lockdown.

Stretching boundaries

Former “Young Creative Associate” Peter Leung also creates a new choreography. The British Leung is known for the way in which he “expands” the boundaries of classical ballet and his work can be seen not only in theatres but also at (international) festivals, in films and in pop videos such as by Go Back to the Zoo and Armin van Buuren. The third world premiere comes from the Spanish Marta Reig-Torres. She danced with the Dutch National Ballet from 1988 to 1998 and then developed herself as a freelance choreographer within the modern dance circuit. Her creations have been selected several times for the Nederlandse Dansdagen (Dutch Dance Days) as the most outstanding works of the season.
