Dutch dance company de Stilte focuses entirely on creating and performing non-verbal dance
productions for children. In doing so, the Breda company aims to stimulate children to come up with a
story of their own; the boundless story of the imagination. Under the artistic direction of Jack
Timmermans, productions are created with academically trained dancers. Thanks to a layered quality,
the performances are suitable for young and old. To complete our permanent dancers ensemble we are, effective immediately, looking for a PROFESSIONAL MALE DANCER.
