Uitmarkt Junior


A popular part of Uitmarkt is its focus on the kids. A stellar programme showcases a wide variety of performances for kids big and small ensuring fun for everyone. The kids can take a masterclass in anything from how to be a crook to theatrical kickboxing. The action doesn’t stop there. There’s also a host of wonderful workshops on offer from percussion to air-conducting and through to hip-hop dance classes.

Dance, dance, dance

Rat Race

Here’s your chance to indulge yourself in the world of dance with Amsterdam’s leading theatres.
