Our Mission

Nederlandse Dansdagen is an organisation dedicated to Dutch dance. The highlight is an annual festival in and from Maastricht. During the first week of October, a range of dance performances and the best of Dutch dance is shown: from "classical" to "urban" from "avant-garde" to "modern dance. Nederlandse Dansdagen aims to make the voice of dance and the dance artist louder. In addition, Nederlandse Dansdagen deploys the power of dance to set society in motion around social issues; it challenges people to think, talk, discuss and act.
