From classical ballet to urban, avantgarde to modern dance, masters to new talent and performance art to dance for a young audience.

Dance throughout the year
The Dutch Dance Festival is more than just a festival. Throughout the year, we work on projects to give dance the stage it deserves. For example, we host conversations about dance with both professional dancers and organisations involved in the field of dance. In addition to this, we cooperate with cultural organisations from the Limburg region, to ensure a spotlight for dance in Limburg. Want to know more about the Dutch Dance Festival?
