Every year, Festival the Dutch Dance Days welcomes international guests who want to get to know Dutch dance in all its manifistations and who want to be personally introduced to the many companies, makers and choreographers. The festival provides a gateway to Dutch dance for international guests. These encounters will not take place in real life during the Dutch Dance Days Digital. However, virtual encounters are made possible by means of a digital workplace in collaboration with Dutch Performing Arts. This digital workshop will be introduced during this special edition, but will continue to contribute to opening up Dutch dance to the international dance field in the coming years.
