May 5th is our national Liberation Day (Bevrijdingsdag), the day in 1945 that the Netherlands were liberated from the German occupation. Nowadays it’s also a day to celebrate our values of freedom, democracy and human rights. The day itself is full of jubilant street parties and café gatherings. However what better way to celebrate this, than with dance. Bevrijdingsdans Festival on Museumplein will be all about ‘dancing to celebrate liberty’: danceacts, danceworkshops and more dancing.
