ODN supports dancers through free career counselling and financial support to help them shape a new career path after the last bow. Every dancer is unique. ODN delivers customized support that fits your needs and moves with you. It’s possible to start studying during your dance career. Once you stop dancing and your retraining truly starts funds can be used for a maximum period of four years.
Criteria for financial support
To receive financial support a minimum number of premiums needs to be paid. The personal retraining budget grows the longer you contribute:
48 premiums in 5 years: € 20.000
96 premiums in 10 years: € 55.000
115 premiums in 12 years: € 75.000
