The Dutch Don't Dance Division (DeDDDD) is a renowned dance company from The Hague, founded in 1996 by Thom Stuart and Rinus Sprong. The company creates and produces high-profile, multidisciplinary dance performances in regular theaters, but also at various locations and festivals. Artistic quality, accessibility, diversity and a sense of humor are of paramount importance! DeDDDD functions as an institute for talent development for (pre)professional dancers. 


In addition, DeDDDD has certainly also built up a strong position as a bridge builder from the amateur dance field to various vocational training courses and the professional field. For example, there are projects with partners such as the Matangi Quartet, Amare, Theater De Nieuwe Regentes and the Residentie Orkest. Working with amateurs at the top level is one of the many strengths within this company. These amateurs, young and old, are trained and coached as full-fledged professional dancers in a safe haven where everyone is respected, each has its own quality and possible limitations, which they also see as challenges. A positive view of a diverse collaboration between different people with a common goal: to dance.
