Dansgroep Krisztina de Châtel has always been a strong advocate of the DANScombinatie. From the very beginning, when the DANScombinatie was merely an adapted version of the 5+ plan for the theatre sector (the programming stimulus for subsidised theatre), Krisztina de Châtel and Cees de Graaff (the then business manager) championed this initiative.
It was therefore no coincidence that the dance company was part of the first DANScombinatie with Het Nationale Ballet and Leine & Roebana. Krisztina de Châtel made a Grand Finale specially for the DANScombinatie. Never before were dancers of such diverse background and style involved in one choreography.
