Rotterdam International Duet Choreography Competition (RIDCC).

Rotterdam International Duet Choreography Competition searches for talent

In June 2022 talent from all over the world will travel to Rotterdam for the 4th edition of the Rotterdam International Duet Choreography Competition (RIDCC). Registrations for the competition are now open.

RIDCC is a unique annual dance festival that brings together new choreographic voices with renowned artistic leaders and programmers, both nationally and internationally. Up-and-coming choreographic talents from all over the world, in all imaginable dance styles, participate in a duet competition.

The duet competition with a collection of choreographers in all imaginable dance styles is the key element of RIDCC. This event is unique in the Netherlands and even worldwide. RIDCC fosters a valuable partnership with leading Dutch and international dance institutions. The final competition will result in one winner of the XL Award.

This prize, acknowledged by a professional jury, enables the winning choreographer to create a complete professional production with Scapino Ballet Rotterdam. Furthermore, the contestants compete for the Partner Awards, which are offered by a selection of dance companies and institutions, and finally the Audience Awards, granted by the public. The awards lead to great visibility within the dance world; access to a valuable network, and the unique experience of a production process within a company.

During the three-day festival in Theater Rotterdam, the choreographers take part in a talent development program, providing them with tools to engage in the dance world in a professional and self-confident manner. The purpose of RIDCC is to promote diversity and innovation within the art of dance, by engaging unique, choreographic talent. Through both the competition, as well as workshops and activities focused on artistic growth.

Inclusion and connection through Choreography

RIDCC believes that professional, innovative and self-developing dance art contributes to a healthy and diverse society. Rooted in a strong network of leading Dutch and international dance institutions. RIDCC is committed to connecting artistic leaders and programmers to new, multi-styled choreographers. The result is a strong and creative community in which discussions combined with the needs and knowledge are central. Providing up-and-coming choreographers with opportunities to present themselves, and offering them the chance to develop professionally.
