CaDansa is a balfolk festival in Steenwijk, The Netherlands. It’s the biggest balfolkfestival in the Netherlands, with amazing international bands. It’s four days of dancing and music, with 100 m2 dancefloor, 1000 dancers, free workshops for dancers and musicians by renowned  teachers, open stage for upcoming talent, fresh, local and biological food and things like a boardgame arena, a quiet room and space enough for meeting with friends and new people. This all started by Louise Marius in 2012 after lots of successful balls in Utrecht. It has grown a lot, with more bands, more dancers, more sessions, more festival atmosphere. With the most beautiful music and your favourite dancers and, during the first edition in 2012, even a rain of falling stars. We hope to see you this year!
