Could CaDansa be possible within those 1,5 meter boundaries?
Technically, CaDansa could be possible with the social distancing rules. But if the 1,5 meter distance were to be maintained, we could welcome far fewer dancers to our festival. In addition, many balfolk dances wouldn’t be possible, except perhaps with one fixed dance-partner. This would drastically change the atmosphere, which is very important to us, and it wouldn’t really be CaDansa that way.
I would like to support CaDansa, is that possible and how?
CaDansa is a festival that runs entirely on volunteers: the money we collect, directly goes to the musicians, teachers and the hall rental. We also invest in our website, we pay our illustrator Maartje de Goede and there are some other costs.
That money comes from ticket sales and merchandise like our CaDansa shirts (and sometimes grants). Now that CaDansa 2020 is canceled, any support is welcome (including moral support only!). If you want to support us financially, there is the possibility to donate: please check our donation page.
Supporting our musicians is also very appreciated: you can do this by listening to their music on Spotify, watching their live streams and other performances, and of course by buying their CDs.
When is CaDansa 2021?
CaDansa 2021 will take place from 21 October till 24 October 2021, once again in Steenwijk. Due to the current circumstances, we’re experiencing some delays in communicating with accommodations. We’re working with them to make great deals for you to sleep in the Steenwijk area. Of course, you’re free to already rent an accommodation, but keep an eye out for better deals. As soon as we’ve got it all worked out, we’ll post them on our website and announce it on our Facebook page. We’ll announce in due time what bands will be playing and when you can buy a ticket.
Can I support you by already buying a ticket for 2021?
Although we would appreciate the gesture, this is not yet possible. We have not yet finalised our agreements with the location, musicians and teachers for example. As a result, there is still too much uncertainty about the ticket prices for the next edition. Therefore we can’t sell tickets yet. There is always the possibility to donate, if you want to support us.
How about a different format: for example an online CaDansa?
An online event can’t be compared to the real festival: the live music, the atmosphere, and last but not least the dancers, we simply cannot recreate this online. We have therefore decided not to organise an online CaDansa. That doesn’t mean you should miss balfolk: there are plenty of other (online) balls and activities which you can attend.
What are we missing now that there is no CaDansa 2020, which bands would have played?
We have invited all bands and workshop teachers that would come to CaDansa this year for a next edition. So we would like to keep that a surprise!
I’ve already booked a place to sleep voor CaDansa 2020: what about that?
If you’ve booked through a CaDansadeal, you can find more information on this page If you booked somewhere else, we advise you to contact the accommodation about cancelling. And of course, you are free to still go on holiday in Steenwijk! 😉 Will you send us a picture if you do?
