International Exchange Realizing the importance of personal and professional contact between artists from countries with different political, social or cultural structures and beliefs, the Foundation initiated and organized international exchanges of students. For instance students from the Czech Republic, China and Slovakia were invited to the Netherlands to observe and work with different dance institutions in this country. The foundation only supports projects of its own choice and does not accept any applications.
