For 10 days,  the  festival celebrates  Indian dance and culture with workshops, introductions, artists talks and performances that can  be seen in the Netherlands for the first time. Experience the unprecedented richness of Indian dance with intense performances that are both classical and contemporary.

Since 2011, the India Dance Festival has been unprecedented in the dance world where classical styles like Bharatanatyam and Kathak merge with intense, new interpretations by talented makers. A festival where leading companies and up-and-coming choreographers from The Netherlands and abroad meet.

The festival  opens  with the grand spectacle opera Cloud Messengeren.  A must- see during the festival  is  the  international hit Fires of Varanasi from the renowned Ragamala Dance Company.
