USC instructors

Laura Rijlaarsdam
graduated at the ‘Hogeschool voor de Kunsten’. She specialized in jazzdance, but after her studies she focused more on other styles, like modern dance. She dances with the Zenga muziektheater, the Holland showballet, Rob List, M-lab muziektheater and lot’s of other productions. She even produced her own children’s show: ‘de Muziekdoos’. Laura teaches the modern dance.  

Debbie Huisman
is naast danser en docent, ook performer en model. Zij studeerde aan de Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Amsterdam. Ze combineerde haar liefde voor kunst, beweging en dans in choreografieën voor Museumnacht Amsterdam, de Fashion Week en verschillende haarshows. Haar choreografieën zijn dynamisch; je maakt verbinding met je lichaam d.m.v. vloeiende en krachtige bewegingen. Dans is voor haar ontspanning, plezier en samenkomen. Dit geeft ze mee in haar lessen.

Wear and shoes

Wear comfortable clothing in which you can move easily. You will dance bare footed with Laura. In Bert-Jan’s classes you can wear socks if you want.
