Welcome for new partners and new activities
NCPA welcomes its new partners: The Dutch Society for Dance Research (VDO: Vereniging voor Dans Onderzoek) and Rijnstate hospital Partnership Orthopedics.
In collaboration with these partners we organize activities, targeted to our partners fields of expertise and network as well as of interest for the NCPA network.
NCPA & the Dutch Society for Dance Research
The Dutch Society for Dance Research (VDO: Vereniging voor Dans Onderzoek) was established in 1990 to stimulate Dutch research, pure as well as applied, in the field of dance. It was an initiative of several individuals (dance lovers and researchers) who wanted to create a forum for dance research in The Netherlands. The Society has a broad definition of dance research. It is not linked to any specific academic discipline and includes historical and sociological research as well as research done in theatre studies, movement sciences, and cultural studies that has ‘dance’ as its main subject. Both academic and applied research projects are of interest to the VDO. VDO has a strong background in the Humanities. Their aim is to broaden and bridge fields of knowlegde and practices in dance and theatre and sees the partnership with NCPA as a great step in that direction.
