Intercultural dance week Culture Clash The Next Step

After four successful editions of Culture Clash, the intercultural dance week and youth exchange Culture Clash will take place again this year in Amsterdam. Culture Clash The Next Step is organized by the Build Your Dream foundation, the foundation of dancer, choreographer, teacher and entrepreneur Anthony Pinas, in collaboration with the European subsidy program Erasmus + and the Norma fund.

Culture Clash The Next Step
From 16 to 24 October 2021, 36 dancers (including six coaches) from six different countries will come together to train for the Culture Clash theater show REBIRTH in Podium Mozaïek 24 October. The host this year is again Juvat Westendorp and the creative director for the show is Tara Masimer.


Anthony is happy that Culture Clash can be organized again after Culture Clash could not take place in 2020 due to corona: “Diversity, culture, togetherness and inclusion are the core concepts of Culture Clash. Because the dance groups are mixed and the coaches work with dancers from different countries, Culture Clash ensures that the dancers get to know and connect with each other by sharing their passion. Dance is a universal language and can bring people from different cultures closer together. We are happy that we can vibe together again this year and learn from each other!”


Culture Clash theater show REBIRTH

With the new groups, the coaches each create a choreography based on this year’s theme ‘Rebirth’. The creative director Tara, together with the coaches, will combine these choreographies into a dance performance in which, in addition to the Rebirth theme, the clash of cultures is the common thread. The support act includes performances by young dancers from OnPoint Dancelab and talented artists from the BYD music studio.


Host Juvat Westendorp

None other than Juvat Westendorp will host Culture Clash again this year. Juvat is originally a modern & hip-hop teacher and dancer and B-boy and is now a talented and in-demand actor. He is excited about the project and is hosting Culture Clash for the fourth time. During the Culture Clash week, Juvat will follow the dancers closely and present the theater show REBIRTH.
