Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) is a Dutch contemporary dance company. NDT is headquartered at the Lucent Danstheater in The Hague. In addition to the Lucent Danstheater, NDT performs at other venues in the Netherlands, including Amsterdam’s Het Muziektheater and Nijmegen’s Stadsschouwburg.

Due to the pandemic, performances at home and abroad have not or hardly been possible for a year now. As a result, NDT has looked for new ways to show dance and reach the public. Film registrations and live streams of dance productions turned out to be a solution.
