Marijn Rademaker

Principal Dancer


Marijn Rademaker was born in Nijmegen, Netherlands. He started his ballet training in Nijmegen and then went to the National Ballet Academy in Amsterdam (1991-1992). Afterwards he was trained at the Arnheim Institute for the Arts (1992-96) and completed his studies at the Royal Conservatory in Den Haag in 2000. In 1998 and 1999 Marijn Rademaker took part in a ballet competition of the “Young Dancer” foundation of Alexandra Radius and Han Ebbelaar where he won the Grace Prize in 1999.

In 2000/2001, Marijn Rademaker became a member of the Stuttgart Ballet’s Corps de ballet. At the beginning of the season 2004/05 he was promoted to Demi Soloist. At the beginning of the season 2006/07 he was supposed to be promoted to Soloist but after his highly successful debut as Armand in The Lady of the Camellias (John Neumeier) in July 2006, Reid Anderson promoted him immediately to Principal Dancer after the performance.

Marco Goecke created the Solo Äffi for Marijn Rademaker, which he danced for the first time at a Gala in Arnheim. For this solo he was named “Young Dancer to watch” in the critics’ choice of the magazine ballettanz 2005. In 2008 he was named several times in the category „Outstanding Dancer“ in ballettanz, above all for his captivating performance of Jago in John Neumeier’s Othello. Just one year later he was named again twice in the category “Best Dancer”. In November 2006 he won the German Theatre Prize “Der Faust” in the category “Best Performer Dance” which has then been awarded for the first time. Only one year later he received the honorable German Dance Prize “Future” 2009. In July 2009 he was awarded the international dance prize “Premio ApuliArte”.

Marijn Rademaker joined the Stuttgart Ballet on tours all around the world. In addition to that he receives invitations to international galas and guest performances. In May 2007 John Neumeier invited him to dance the role of Armand Duval in his The Lady of the Camellias together with the Hamburg Ballet and Sue Jin Kang as Marguerite Gautier. At the 34th Nijinski-Gala in the course of the “Hamburg Ballet Days 2008” he danced excerpts as Tadzio in John Neumeiers Death in Venice together with Lloyd Riggins as Aschenbach. In the season 2008/09 he performed the title role in Heinz Spoerli's Peer Gynt as a guest with the Zurcher Ballet which has also been recorded for television and a DVD-production. In January 2011 Marijn Rademaker was guesting at Het Nationale Ballet Amsterdam where he danced in The Sleeping Beauty (Sir Peter Wright nach Marius Petipa) together with Maia Makhateli. Since the season 2011/12 he is dancing as a permanent guest with Het Nationale Ballet Amsterdam.

For the Noverre-Society’s “Young Choreographers” Marijn Rademaker created his first own choreography in May 2012: the Solo Odium? was danced by Stuttgart Ballet’s dancer Robert Robinson.
