Due to the continuously changing Covid 19 situation, we cannot yet confirm reservations for the Accommodation Package at the moment of application. After applications for the Winter School have closed (on 20 November 2020), we will reassess the current situation in the Netherlands. In the week of 23 November 2020, we will contact all participants that have reserved the Accommodation Package and propose the fee for your stay. The reason we cannot yet communicate the price at this moment is that accommodation prices are based on the group size of participants, as well as the number of students that can share a room due to Covid 19 measures. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Participants can choose to stay at the Amsterdam based Stayokay Amsterdam Oost hostel. This modern, recently fully renovated hostel is located in a quiet, typical Amsterdam neighborhood. The Chassé Dance Studios are about 35 minutes away by tram. Stayokay Amsterdam Oost has its own café-restaurant where a breakfast buffet and a three-course dinner are served daily. The cooks use only fresh – and if possible organic – ingredients and serve healthy and varied meals. The kitchen can cater to most of the more common dietary restrictions (vegetarian, gluten-free, lactose-free, et cetera). Stayokay shares the premises with a number of interesting neighbors, which means that there is always plenty to do, should you have any energy left after a hard day’s work at the studios. For instance, the Studio K café and cinema is right around the corner.

We offer the following Accommodation Package for the ESB Winter School:

Costs: TBA
Check-in: 25 December 2020 (from 14:00h)
Check-out: 3 January 2021 (before 10:15h)

This price includes accommodation, a daily breakfast buffet, packed lunches (to take to the studios), and a three-course dinner. Participants share rooms with fellow dance students (boys and girls separated as much as possible), sharing a bathroom with a shower and a separate toilet between the six of them. The hostel carries an ECO-label and has a 100% no-smoking policy. Free WiFi is included. A laundromat, bicycle rental, sweets machine, soft drinks machine, ice machine, ticket sales (public transport, Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum, and canal cruises) are available.

You can apply for the Accommodation Package when filling out the application form. Due to a limited amount of available rooms, we advise students to reserve a place as soon as possible.
