Open Stage Dance Day - Take Part!

On Sunday 30 April we have a programme dedicated to a new generation of dance talent with OPEN STAGE. Based on an open call, together with the urban dance non-profit organisation Straatrijk, we have select the most impressive dance projects from the amateur and semi-professional circuit of Leuven and beyond. We offer them a highly prized place on STUK’s stage. There are also dozens of dancers from Wim Vandekeybus, the Ulti’Mates, performing their new works. OPEN STAGE has something for everyone: prepare yourself for an eclectic mix of dance styles and ages, representing the colourful palette of what’s currently brewing in the dance world. The evening draws to an end with a special festive edition of Jazz on Sunday

Between the acts people can enter or leave. Between the different parts, all visitors need to leave the venue.
