This year, Chourouk El-Mahati (Morocco) and Salem Abdelbasset (Algeria) have been selected for the Dancing on the Edge Scholarship 2019. Chourouk and Salem are invited to take part in the Amsterdam Summer Intensive Program, organized by the Henny Jurriëns Studio. The dancers will also attend performances at Julidans Festival.

During three weeks the dancers will work intensively on their dance skills, by participating in technique classes and workshops given by  teachers representing the most important companies and styles in today’s contemporary dance world.
