The Folkloristic Dancegroup Hellendoorn was founded in 1955. In those days under the name ‘First Hellendoornse Farmer Dance Group’. Mr B.J. Leyerweerd, mr A. Valk and mr A. Klein Rozeboom are the initiators. The first performance of the group took place during Queensday in the garden of the Royal Palace Soestdijk. Folkdance is popular. That’s not surprising, because there are just a few activities/avocations wich offer people that much. Folkloristic dancing is an active and cosy activity at which you make friends real soon, both in home country and abroad. You’d like to go dancing? Come and meet our Folkloristic Dancegroup Hellendoorn.
