Ton Greten

Dance Explorer | Dance Movement scientist | Author | Choreographer | Teacher | Teacher/ Educator | Coach | Music designer | Co-Host Podcast DanceGems

I’m Ton Greten, a dance explorer, dance movement scientist, dance educator, choreographer, author, music creator and an optimist dedicated to helping teachers, trainers coaches, choreographers and dancers to develop.

We started this podcast: to give different insights to those working in this dance profession. Every week, we interview successful dancers and choreographers about their careers, creative process, in the dance world. If you’re looking for inspiration and practical advice in the profession, this is the podcast for you!

Why Listening to our podcast?
We talk about all aspects of dance! We discuss different styles and techniques and interview all kinds of dancers, and we listen to what they have to say, their perspective, their vision, their knowledge. This is for all of you who want to grow as a dancer. Keep learning and expanding your horizons – there’s so much to explore in dance!

Why do we have this podcast?
Dance is one of those things that can’t be put in a box. You can’t bottle or capture it even if you have dedicated yourself to one style. It’s about the freedom to choose your moves and express yourself through movement. It’s about being dedicated to the craft and continuously learning new techniques. It’s about having fun and feeling the joy of movement. It’s about letting go and being in the moment. Dance is all about choices, freedom, and self-expression. Dance is an ancient and ever-evolving art form. The earliest recorded dances date back thousands of years, and there is evidence that dance has been a part of human culture since the dawn of civilization.Since then, dance has continued to evolve and change, being developed in tribes, on the street, studios, conservatories, and on stages worldwide. It is a truly global art form that knows no bounds. To truly study dance is to dedicate oneself to a lifetime of learning. There is so much to know about dance history, theory, and technique that it can be overwhelming for even the most dedicated student. But this wealth of knowledge makes dance such a rich and rewarding art form to study. In our podcast, we will explore all aspects of dance and cross many styles and disciplines. We like to give established and less-known dancers and choreographers a platform to share their knowledge and vision. We hope you will join us on this journey as we explore the wonderful world of dance!

About our podcast
As professionals in the dance industry for over 60 years combined, we’ve found that one of the best ways to learn more about what’s happening in the dance world is to interview those who have been working for years. Each week, we’ll interview a different dancer, choreographer, or educator and ask him or her to shine a light on a specific topic. Whether discussing the latest trends in choreography or delving into the history of dance education, I’m sure you’ll find these interviews informative and insightful. So, tune in each week to learn something new about the beautiful dance world! Our podcast is there to enrich you as a dancer and person, to help you grow, and to help you create your vision of dance. We want to help you become the best dancer you can be, and we also want to help you develop your unique style.
