Meet the Dancers: Naomi

One of our new dancers this year is beautiful Naomi. This bright econometrics student delights us every rehearsal with her gorgeous lines, turns, and jumps. She also contributed to the show with funky classical choreography.

Ballet and pointe shoes may be her specialty, but don’t judge this book by its classical cover – spicy jazz and sexy belly dance have proven to be not a problem at all for this ballerina, and we may have heard some rumors about salsa, too! But when she enters the club, the real magic happens. She breaks it down. Honestly, her club dancing is so impressive, the rest may as well go home.

So stay for drinks with us after the show, and who knows… maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of this extraordinary talent! Keep rocking, Naomi!

Dance style(s): classical ballet, salsa, modern, show

Extra (non-dance) talents: playing the piano, and baking cookies and pies
Fun fact: Naomi really appreciates a good… whiskey! She’s even planning a trip to Ireland to visit a variety of whiskey distilleries

‘What I Meant to Say’ sneak peek

We wanted to give you a little glimpse into the creative process of ‘What I Meant To Say’ so we gave photographer Rick van Woudenberg a one-time access pass to our rehearsal. And what an amazing job he’s done! Here’s a little rehearsal sneak peek.


Tickets are now available!

Tickets for ‘What I Meant to Say’ are now available! Read all about it on our tickets page. We can’t wait to show you what we have created this year.

The bags are back!
This year you have the option to buy a ticket that includes the official Project Blank bag. This is a high quality ecofriendly produced Earthpositive Canvas bag. If you decide to buy this ticket you will receive the bag when we scan your ticket at the entrance to our show.

For those of you that weren’t there: in our show from last year we did an epic piece to raise attention for global warming. We encouraged our audience to make small changes in their life like taking a canvas bag to the supermarket. Buy a ticket plus canvas bag and join us!


‘What I Meant To Say’ – our 2018 dance production

As we are halfway through the rehearsal process, it is about time we shared some details about our upcoming shows with you! We are excited to officially announce the 2018 Project Blank dance production:

What I Meant To Say

In ‘What I Meant To Say’, the diverse dancers of Project Blank fuse classical, modern, and urban dance styles to explore human relationships with ourselves and others. This physical and emotional performance does not shy away from the beautiful or the ugly; the intense or the serene. For an hour, audiences will be taken on a relatable journey of conflict, struggle, and ultimately, support.

Please allow us to take you on a journey through the connections that we experience in our everyday lives.

Meet the Dancers: Evelyn

This week, the spotlight is on Evelyn. She is a dancer who can make any move look effortless. If you need proof, just check out that photo… This girl is a true jane-of-all-trades. Not only does she bring multiple styles to the dance floor, but also plenty of stage experience – from public speaking to theatre directing.

This year’s show will feature Evelyn both as a dancer and a choreographer. She always has a clear vision for her choreographies. However, her passion for improvisation leaves her dancers with plenty of room for experimentation, too. This fuels their creative spirit and results in a powerful piece. Rock on, Evelyn!

Evelyn’s dancers passport

Age: 30
Height: 1.70m
Work/study: an aspiring artist, plus university researcher in Media and Performance Studies
Dance styles: her favourite is contemporary but African dance is stealing her heart
Super dance talent: improvise, improvise, and improvise some more
Extra talents: most likely found in the kitchen, improvising recipes, and exploring new ingredients
Fun fact: caffeine makes Evelyn jump up and down and up and down and up and down. It’s not a pretty sight. (She only drinks coffee decaf!)

Meet the Dancers: Nadia

We kick off this year’s Meet the Dancers series with bubbly Nadia. We are thrilled to have her and we wish that she could have joined us sooner. Be that as it may, that wouldn’t have been possible: she has been travelling the world for more than a year and a half!

What makes us so glad Nadia is on our team? First of all, she brings a happy energy and sincere eagerness to every rehearsal. In addition, she is helping to expand the Project Blank range of styles. This couldn’t make us happier, as you know we just love diversity. Together with Evelyn (soon to be introduced), Nadia is bringing a fine mixture of urban styles to our show. We can’t wait to showcase her hard-hitting moves!

Age: 28
Height: 1.68m
Work/study: psychologist for young kids with eating disorders
Dance styles: hiphop, afro and modern
Super dance talent: gymnastic techniques
Extra talents: Nadia is a musical star, too. She played a role in the Dutch musical ‘Kunt u mij de weg naar Hamelen vertellen, meneer?’, based on the fairy tale The Pied Piper of Hamelin
Fun fact: Nadia’s toes are slightly crooked but symmetrical on both feet!

YES! Project Blank is whole again

In our previous post, we revealed a little secret: to be able to kick ass in winter, we hibernate in summer. Last Saturday, on 1 September, the meteorological autumn officially started. That means that by now, we are all fully awake!

Hence, with excited smiles, we proudly present to you: the full Project Blank 2018 team! Just look at this happy bunch. Doesn’t it make you wanna dance, too?

  • Top row: Annelies, Robbert, Larissa, Lydia, & Simone
  • Bottom row: Afra, Evelyn, Ely, Jolijn, Lot, Nadia, Floor, & Naomi

We have quite a few returning dancers, but we’ve also been blessed with some damn good fresh blood. We will be introducing our newbies over the coming weeks in our Meet the Dancers posts.

Stay tuned!

Meet the first batch of the Project Blank 2018 team!

Most animals hibernate in winter (and some humans, too). But not us. Project Blank is dormant in the summer, but with the first rain showers of autumn, it is time for us to wake up!

We’re starting off slow. Our first rehearsal was pretty quiet – we are still waking up from our summer dance sleep – but that does not matter.  The ball is rolling.

Here we are again!

Project Blank is back, with a new team. With bigger and better ideas. With more ambition than we have ever had before.

Let us introduce you to the first batch of 2018 crew members. From left to right:

Afra, Robbert, Lydia, Larissa, Annelies, Simone, Nadia, & Floor

We can’t wait to take on this year’s creative ambitions with you. And with the five other amazing dancers, who we will introduce soon, of course.

In the meantime, check in regularly for blogs, vlogs, rehearsal sneak peeks, and more!

Attention dancers of all styles! Are you looking for an opportunity to take the stage? If you are awesome in your own style, no matter what it is, hit up our audition on June 24th! Whether you are technically trained or an experienced social dancer, we want you.

In the past, we have taken ballerinas, salsa and zouk dancers, modern dancers, belly dancers, jazz dancers, contemporary dancers, and gymnasts. We are especially on the lookout for hip hop dancers and men with classical or technical training, but all styles and genders are welcome.

Go to wat wij doen and dansers to find out who we are and browse some videos and photos of what we do.

Visit audities for audition information in Dutch and English, and a link to our registration form.

See you on the dance floor!
