Contribute to the realization of the Dance Tent on the Vrijthof during the Nederlandse Dansdagen and make the anniversary party complete.

Nederlandse Dansdagen is celebrating its 25th anniversary! From 30 September to 6 October, the city of Maastricht will once again be packed with top performances, intimate premieres, dance talks, workshops, underground parties and much more. But during this anniversary we want the whole city to dance! And this in a real dance tent, in the middle of the Vrijthof Square. With your help, we'll make this mirror tent the stage for everyone who wants to dance, battle, clubbing, or just enjoy the dance close by. The dance tent will make the anniversary party complete. Will you make Maastricht dance?

The Dance Tent: why?
People are dancing less and less. Also in a city like Maastricht. Once it was common to dance in numerous cafes or more often spontaneous dancing in the streets. Now there is only one club, for very young people. While moving or dancing is a wonderful way to express yourself. Alone, but especially together. In Corona times we have distanced ourselves physically from each other. We need to regain ground, come together physically and dance. That's why it's so important that this Dance Tent is realised.

What will happen in the tent?
In the Dance Tent on the Vrijthof, the public is invited to experience dance in new ways. The Dance Tent opens its doors on Friday, September 30 at 17:00 and will continue to show performances until Sunday, October 2. Above all, it will offer the opportunity to dance during workshops, dance battles, party nights and an open stage.

What will your contribution be spent on?
Your support will make it possible to realize this unique Dance Tent. To turn the Dance Tent into a real dance stage, there are of course a number of things needed. Think of a dance floor, speakers for the best sound, lights to put the dancers in the spotlight and DJs to make the party complete. So donate now and make the Dance tent complete.
