HJS Spring Intensive 2014

.......started this Monday 14 April.

We have classes and workshops in two studios;

HJS studio at the Bellamystraat 

Extra studio; Studio Leine Roebana, for the route description click HERE

In the extra studio Marijke Eliasberg will teach open class ánd workshop. In the past, the Spring and Summer Intensives always took place at the studio of Danshuis in Amsterdam North, due to the fact that Danshuis Amsterdam will not be realized we can no longer use this big studio, We are happy we can program the Spring Intensive at the studio of Leine Roebana, though this studio asks for some management, but as  Marijke is used to more than full studios in New York, she is up to this job!!

 You can buy your single class card at both venues. The 10 class card can only be purchased at the HJS Bellamystraat (please bring cash money, no credit card / PIN payments are possible).

The workshop with Karine Guizzo still has some places.

Plans for Danshuis Amsterdam Cancelled

To the great regret of HJS, Danshuis Amsterdam will not happen. After 20 years of working on the project- which would provide permanent high quality housing for much of the dance sector in the city- the board of directors of St. Beheer Danshuis Amsterdam have announced its demise. The most important reason is the failure at the last minute of one of the main partners, Dansmakers, to commit to the rental agreement because of what they consider the financial risks and not having enough time to decide. The other partners, HJS and ICKamsterdam had agreed., but without all three signatures, the financing agreement with the City of Amsterdam could not go through.

HJS will continue its daily program of classes on the Bellamystraat until further notice, and will continue its efforts together with ICKamsterdam to create synergy in the dance sector. For the full text of the Dutch press release see:


Attention Dancers

Please pay for class before the class starts! If you take more than one class you cannot pay for the second or third class afterwards as the administration is then closed. Thanks for your cooperation.
