Stichting Nederlandse Dansdagen is an organization that annually focuses on the heritage, current events and future of Dutch dance. Since 1998, we have been organizing Festival de Nederlandse Dansdagen every October, where the top of Dutch dance is shown at various locations in Maastricht. In 2020, in addition to the live festival, we also launched an online platform, on which the best dance can also be admired online at the time of the Dutch Dance Days. A special edition of the festival is planned for 2022. From September 29 to October 6, 2022, we will be celebrating our 25th edition, showing both online and live dance.

We award the most prestigious dance prizes in the Netherlands, program a large number of premieres, must-see performances and innovative own productions by both emerging choreographers and established dance companies. From classical ballet to urban dance, for young and old, dance enthusiasts and dance professionals.

The Nederlandse Dansdagen endorses the Cultural Diversity & Inclusion Code and has set itself the goal of being a reflection of society as an organisation. In case of equal suitability, preference will be given to the candidate who strengthens the diversity within our team.
