Dansateliers is an independent house for contemporary dance based in Rotterdam. The organization plays an important role in the development of several generations of dance artists ensuring an ongoing nurturing of the national and international contemporary dance field.
Dansateliers offers the possibility for emerging dance makers to research and investigate ideas. The house supports choreographers in the search for their artistic identity and position within the contemporary dance field. Our research- and development trajectories can be short or longterm, but are always custom made and offer support on both dramaturgical and artistic as organizational level. Among our activities we include professional trainings, workshops and encounters with the audience. Dansateliers is subsidized structurally by the City Council, Department Arts and Culture, of Rotterdam.
