The Dutch National Ballet in close cooperation with the National Ballet Academy in Amsterdam started the Junior Company. The Artists Development Programme of the Junior Company of the National Ballet is intended as a springboard for top talent which is in the transitional phase between studying Dance and then moving into the professional field. It offers young dancers a two-year work experience and training placement, preparing them for a possible position with the National Ballet. Ammodo supports the Junior Company to promote new dance talent and to preserve the quality of the Dutch National Ballet.
