Community Dutch Dance Training Program

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! This program is offered without a fee to participate, although a costume and wooden shoes will be needed to participate. 

Newcomers: 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. Come as a full group of twelve dancers, as a couple or an individual. We will help you join a group and be ready to dance.

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!


Community Dutch Dance will not be practicing or performing during the 2021 Tulip Time festival. Be on the look out for information regarding Community Dutch Dance in 2022.

No new costumes will be cut out or produced this year through Tulip Time. Please email to get in touch with a Costume Director for information on costuming in 2022.
