The annual Delft Moves festival is coming, and the Theater de Veste is going to be all about dance. A large number of partners, including Delft voor Elkaar, House of Styles and Dance Project, have joined forces to get young Delft moving during the festival, beforehand in the neighbourhoods and at the schools.
World Cup breakdance heroes come to Delft
The Ruggeds will open the Delft Moves festival on Friday 5 April. These breakdance heroes mix music, acrobatics, humor and dance into a stunning show. The international press is also enthusiastic: “Quite a rush to experience,” says The Guardian. “Kept topping their energy,” praised The New York Times. Tip: go to the special workshop before the festival which will be given as a warm up by the group’s dancers on Saturday 30 March in Theater de Veste.
Participate, watch and enjoy
Saturday afternoon April 6 is the stage for young Delft during the “Local Talent Stage”. You can participate in cool dance workshops, an “open floor” and there are a series of battles. Including the Peanut Battle for little ones between the ages of 4 and 7, the Kids Battle and the Junior Battle. As icing on the cake at the end of the afternoon more than a hundred children from seven different Delft neighborhoods perform. The dance party is concluded with performances by top dancers Shane Boers (among others, finalist Red Bull BC One) and Justen Beer (among others winner of “Everybody Dance Now”).

Meet the stars of the future in a program that combines classical ballet at the highest level with works by the idiosyncratic choreographers Daniela Cardim, Wubkje Kuindersma and Milena Sidorova. On Sunday 7 April we will close the Delft Moves festival with the Junior Company of the famous National Ballet. Prior to the performance “Unboxing Ballet” the company shows a peek into the kitchen; you can attend a ballet class for free.
