Dance course explodes. Sudden vacancy management dance course Royal Conservatoire

The dance course at The Hague Conservatory of Music has exploded. Sort of. Nancy Euverink, director of dance education is in fact stepping down from the Royal Conservatoire (KC). And not only that. Deputy director Tom Bosma is not staying on either. Who will take over after the final performances and in the new season is still unclear. An international vacancy has been posted.

So things are hopping at the KC. Nancy Euverink, herself trained at the KC's dance academy, took up the challenge of running the academy in September 2011. Three years later, that proved to be a step too far. What exactly is wrong is not clear, but that things are not running smoothly is a fact. Euverink's predecessor and former dancer Wim Broeckx left the academy as director in similar circumstances. And success teacher Christopher Powney, left as director at the National Ballet Academy before moving on to The Royal Ballet School.

We know it remains a search for the right course at the programme. On the one hand, there is cooperation with Nederlands Dans Theater and Codarts Rotterdam on talent scouting, curriculum alignment and joint projects. In addition, the KC is set to get new accommodation in 2018. Yet every now and then, someone shouts that the dance department can leave. According to some, there are too many dance programmes anyway and the Hague programme would not distinguish itself enough from those in Amsterdam (classical) and Rotterdam (modern).

An employee of the ballet academy reacts tensely when asked if there will be a new director after the summer. He is not aware of that but "maybe at a higher level". Department of PR adds that no candidate is yet known for the position. For an overview of the requirements click here
