Dutch ballet and dance are amongst the best in the world. Many foreign dancers and international music stars are attracted to work in Holland, work for Dutch dance companies, or collaborate with Dutch choreographers, DJs and producers.
Due the proximity of Paris and London, Amsterdam and The Hague (dance capital of Holland) have always been a venue for the best ballet performances in Europe. Even though Holland does not have a long ballet tradition, it is the home to some of the most respected ballet companies in the world such as the Netherlands Dans Theater, the Dutch National Ballet and Scapino Ballet.
Along with these three ballet companies and their performances, many internationally renowned dance festivals are organized on a regular basis. Cinedans, Holland Dance Festival and the Amsterdam Dance Festival are just few examples of extraordinary events bringing rhythm and dynamics to Dutch venues.
