English summary

From 1983 until 1991 the American born dancer/choreographer Bob Foltz surprised the Dutch danceworld with unknown dynamic dance with a high quality of technique with a dosis of humor and dance pleasure. After eight years, 8 productions, including more then 20 successfull choreographies, he chose for his other passion garden architecture.
After 14 years of gardening Foltz decided to bring out a production again as choreographer and dancer with members of his original group Foltz + Company. The premier of 'Reoccurrence' in the Grand Theatre, Groningen The Netherlands, was again such an success that Foltz decided to continue what was closest to his heart, choreography and dance.

“A performance that immediately sticks in your memory. A world in itself, but recognisable and very close-by”

(Dagblad van het Noorden, 3/10/2006)

Foltz + Company

Inspired dance. Dance with heart and soul, often danced by older dancers or young dancers with a mature stage personality. That is special about the dance of Foltz + Company.

Bob Foltz and many of the dancers with whom he works, deliberately chose some time for a life outside the dance. It has made their passion for dance and the power they radiate only stronger. 'Stardom' is alien to them, it is the essence of dance to them, hopefully touching the public with the power of movement.

That makes a Foltz presentation a happening with a major impact on the audience.

Een voorstelling die zich meteen in je herinnering vastzet. Een wereld op zichzelf, maar herkenbaar en menselijk dichtbij.

(Dagblad van het Noorden)

Mooie, eerlijke, pure dans, gemaakt voor en over drie mensen die elkaars taal spreken.

Choreografische helderheid, vitaliteit, goede muziekkeuze, een verzorgd toneelbeeld, getoond danstechnisch kunnen.
