are happy to get personal" said Mabel Alter, former dancer with Nederlands
Dans Theater and previously teacher at Codarts Rotterdam Dance Academy.
"Summerschool Den Haag will work with small groups. The students will be

pleasure in dance". Further teachers this year include Bregje van Balen;
prominent dancer at the Nederlands Dans Theater for 18 years, Csaba Kvasz;
State Opera Budapest, Keith-Derrick Randolp; Scapino Ballet Rotterdam and
