Nederlandse Dansdagen


29 SEP — 5 OCT 2023

Every year, Nederlandse Dansdagen brings the best of Dutch dance to Maastricht to celebrate its unprecedented diversity and quality with visitors from near and far. The program ranges from classical ballet to urban, avant garde to modern dance, masters to new talent and performance art to dance for a young audience.

The city of Maastricht breathes dance and bustles with high quality performances, intimate premieres, dancenights and underground parties. Theater aan het Vrijthof is the heart of the festival and the Danstent on the Vrijthof square completes it. From Friday 29 September until Sunday 1 October, this is the stage for everyone that wants to dance, battle, go clubbing, or enjoy dance from up close.
