          The decision to offer or cancel this program will be made based on the number of participants signed up by January 2018. Practices begin in January 2018.  A practice schedule with times, locations and other information will be published in advance. The Dancer Handbook which can be found below also contains many details and information about the Dutch Dance program. Please take a moment to review and familiarize yourself with our programs.

          For adults who have always wanted to learn Dutch Dancing but never had the opportunity before, the Tulip Time Festival Community Dutch Dance program is for you!
          Are you new to the greater Holland area community?  Welcome! This is a great way to get involved in your community and meet new people!  No matter what your nationality, join the fun and celebrate your community’s heritage for a week each year in May.

          Previous Dancers
          This program is also recommended for previous dancers who have not danced for a number of years or for those who are switching positions. This is a great way to “brush up” on those ‘windmills’ and ‘stars’ as well as build endurance. It is a great exercise program and a lot of fun!
