Sjoerd Vreugdenhil is a graduate of the Royal Conservatory in The Hague and the Rotterdam Dance Academy. He began his professional career with Introdans in Arnhem and Scapino Ballet in Rotterdam. As a soloist he danced with the Zurich Ballet and, for six years, with Ballett Frankfurt with whom he entered the choreographic scene with Fat Peggy's Sober Property shown at the Cadance Festival in the Hague in 2002. The show revealed his talent for combining dance, theatre and the visual arts, and was immediately recognised as one of the highlights of the 2002/2003 season in the Netherlands. Since then, Sjoerd’s shows have often featured at numerous festivals winning prestigious awards. In the meantime, the artist completed a course in architecture at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, which greatly enhanced his awareness of and work on the stage image. In 2004 Vreugdenhil became the Resident Choreographer at Danshuis Limburg. He is the author of several dozen shows and installations; apart from his own projects he has created choreographies for companies like Dansgroep Krisztina de Chatel, Scapino Ballet, Staatsoper unter den Linden in Berlin, ZUKT Hochschule Frankfurt am Main and Dansgroep Amsterdam.
