Welcome!

This years Dansstage was the tenth anniversary! It took place on the 26th up and to the 28th of February, 2016.

The Dansstage is a yearly Balfolk dancing event, encompassing 10 hours of workshops, three balls, food, and a place to sleep. It takes place at the University campus of Twente University, Enschede, NL.

What is the ‘Dansstage’?

The dansstage is a weekend filled with balfolk dancing in the Netherlands. There are workshops on every level, so anyone who likes to dance – from beginners to far-advanced dancers – can enjoy this weekend. Participants will be welcome from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon. The weekend includes and breakfast and lunch on both days, dinner on Saturday and an optional place to sleep. During the day there will be workshops, so you can practice all kinds of balfok dances. Depending on your level there will be a more broadly oriented workshop or several specific workshops to choose from. In the evenings, we have balls with several bands playing great balfolk music! (See the programme for details)

The most important thing, however, is the atmosphere. Every year we feel very lucky to be surrounded by lovely people, having nice dances, making music, playing crazy games or generally just having fun all over the place. If you can’t join us for the entire weekend, the ball on Saturday evening is open to everyone, so feel free to come and enjoy the great dansstage-atmosphere for just one night.
