Supported Projects

International  Exchange 

Realizing the importance of personal and professional 
contact between artists from countries with different 
political, social or cultural structures and beliefs, 
the Foundation initiated and organized international 
exchanges of students. For instance students from 
the Czech Republic, China and Slovakia were invited 
to the Netherlands to observe and work with different 
dance institutions in this country.

The foundation only supports projects of it's own 
choice and does not accept any applications.
