Dansmakers Amsterdam started in 1993 as DansWerkplaats Amsterdam. From a dance laboratory, we developed into a dance production house with its own stage. As a generator of talent, Dansmakers stands for research, production, promotion and presentation.
Dansmakers supports a selection of talented contemporary choreographers. For the development of young choreographic talent, research is of utmost importance. During research projects, choreographers have the time to work on a concept and present it. An important part is contact with the audience and peers. Resulting from the research projects and collaborations with other partners, (co)productions are developed.
Dansmakers also organises an annual dance festival for young, emerging talent.
