Meet the stars of the future in a programme that links classical ballet at the highest level with works by the self-willed choreographers Daniela Cardim, Wubkje Kuindersma and Milena Sidorova.

'A Bengali firework of pointe variations.'

The National Ballet created the Junior Company in 2013 to encourage young dance talent. The ensemble is formed by twelve young, gifted dancers. They all have it in themselves to grow into the stars of tomorrow. “All twelve dancers are young, ambitious, eager and enthusiastic,” writes Trouw after their first programme.

The group presents itself again with an attractive new programme, which, like the previous programme, consists of parts from the (neo) classical repertoire and new creations by well-regarded choreographers. To start with, Unboxing ballet includes a classical work: the Paquita Suite, in the critically acclaimed arrangement that Rachel Beaujean produced, focused on the pure dance divertissements that dance master Marius Petipa added to the original in 1881. “A Bengali firework of pointe variations”, de Volkskrant wrote.

In de pers

“(…) In het nieuwe tourneeprogramma van de Junior Company laat (Wubkje Kuindersma) zien hoe fantastisch ze met tien dansers uit de voeten kan.”
- De Volkskrant, Annette Embrechts ****

“De ingenieuze combinaties van spitzenwerk, duizelingwekkende draaiingen sprongenseries vergen zichtbaar veel van de dansers – maar deze lichting junioren slaat zich er zwierend doorheen.
(…) Ik zou het zo drie keer achter elkaar willen zien. (…) Geestig en ontroerend.”
- Het Parool, Fritz de Jong

“Vloeiende bewegingen en virtuositeit in ‘Unboxing Ballet’
(…) bruisend ballet dat de dansers uitdaagt hun talent voor het voetlicht te brengen. En talentvolle dansers kent de Junior Company.”
- Noordhollands Dagblad, Nanska van de Laar
