About

A fun-filled dance performance for young audiences from the Netherlands!

Observe an exuberant ode to playing.

Three performers storm the stage whirling, twirling, hiccupping, tumbling, and singing. Dutch dance company De Dansers presents this mesmerizing performance full of movement, rhythm, fantasy, and friendship for children and grown-ups who can’t keep still. As the performers give themselves permission to run, climb, and get dirty, anything—from a ladder to a guitar to plants—becomes something to joyfully play on.

Most enjoyed by ages 5+. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
