Since the first dance tour for Japanese folk dance
teachers to The Netherlands in 1997, the event has been repeated
on a two-yearly basis and recently the 4th tour brought the total
number of Japanese visitors to our country to over 150.
The purpose is to have folk dance teachers become acquainted with
elements of the Dutch folk dance teacher training in order to improve
the pedagogical techniques that can be used when teaching this dance
Twenty hours of training are offered in the 10 day tour, which also
contains other components related to folklore.
