The Holland Dance Festival introduces the most current trends and developments in international dance, as well as the most distinctive and talked about productions and companies from all over the world to audiences in the Netherlands.

Based in Hague, city of peace, justice and dance, the Holland Dance Festival takes place every two years in different theaters across town. The recently built Amare Theater, the largest partner venue, also holds, at present, international dance productions outside of the festival period throughout the year. In addition, organized tours throughout the Netherlands, include the annual Talent on the Move production, which features a new generation of dancers, in a diversified program.
