In de tweede helft van 2014 zal in de voormalige Storkfabriek in Amsterdam-Noord een nieuw dansinstituut worden geopend.



Freelance dance artists living or working in Amsterdam



we agree that in Amsterdam there has been for years a shortage of affordable good quality studio space, that in Amsterdam there is no real center for freelance dance artists where they can train, rehearse, produce, mount and show pieces as well as meet each other, and that the constant travelling between spaces prevents synergy and cooperation. We agree that the creation of this center will give a great boost locally, nationally, and internationally to the dance art in Amsterdam.


and request

We want that the municipality support the creation of a Dance House on the Overkant in Amsterdam North, where freelancers as well as the city dance production house (Dansmakers - and the city dance company (Emio Greco l PC/ ICK Amsterdam- and the training facilty (Henny Jurriens Foundation- can share one large space and where a number of studios will be guaranteed for freelancers. This will be discussed on 6 February in the KSZ Commission) see
