Dancing on the Edge often organizes artistic residencies in The Netherlands for artists from the Middle East and North Africa. These are organized in collaboration with Dutch production houses or professional companies. Partners include Dansmakers Amsterdam, Korzo, ICKamsterdam, and the Henny Jurriëns Foundation.
Artists are chosen through open calls from which a selection is made, and occasionally on the request of an artist or organization. Choreographers and theater artists greatly benefit by a period of residence away from their normal surroundings, and in a place where good facilities, new input and experienced feedback are available. Calls for these programs are posted on the site, in the newsletter, and on social media.
