After having organized classes and workshops in the studio on the Bellamystraat for almost 10 years, this February Henny Jurriëns Foundation will start moving to a new location, just  a few hundred meters away.TheChassé Dance Studios in the beautifully refurbished Chassé Church is an 8-studio complex which offers not only many possibilities for HJS, but for the whole Amsterdam (and international) dance field. The largest studio, where HJS will schedule classes in the mornings, is slightly larger and a meter higher than the one on the Bellamystraat, and the other studios on the ground floor which we will sometimes use, are also a good size.
