The script was ready, our production and volunteer coordinators made the finishing touches. With 11 weeks to go, everything went smoothly ….. until public life came to a halt. Big events have been canceled, as have performances in theaters, ticket sales have come to a halt and the end of this situation is unpredictable. Drenthe on the Move is also feeling the consequences of this situation.
In consultation with the Municipality of Westerveld and the province of Drenthe, we have decided in this uncertain situation to cancel Drenthe on the Move to avoid in engaging in further financial commitments. Obviously not an easy decision, but unfortunately we have no other choice.
Like us, you were probably looking forward to attend Drenthe on the Move. The first dance festival in the Netherlands that offers a variety of dance fields. Where young and old would have been able to try different dance styles.
In the past three years, many people have worked very hard to set up the Drenthe on the Move dance festival 2020. Grant applications, conversations with the municipality and province, building a website, promotional videos. Many production and marketing meetings. In short, it was bustling.
Tickets already purchased will be refunded as soon as possible.
We hope for your understanding, apologize for the inconvenience and please stay healthy.
The board of the Drenthe on the Move Foundation
