One-day Dance Festival

You Better Move! is a meeting of ideas, a collective 'aha' experience, a  sparkling event with work fresh of the press. 

With this one-day dance festival, Dansmakers Podium is stage for the makers with a multi-coloured collection of new, radical and qualitative work. This recurring festival is an invitation to the dance field to come together, talk and share ideas. Each edition is composed by an Amsterdam choreographer. 



While the Internet of Things is in order to collapse under the weight of its own success and we freak out looking for The New Next Thing, it is the artist who with his work exceeds our imagination. Not just divine inspiration, but hard work, determination and a tireless interest in the world and in the others is the germ of his work. With the series You Better Move!, Dansmakers Amsterdam is a stage for establishing makers to show their work, a process, to give and take workshops or to pitch ideas. Each editionis composed by an Amsterdam choreographer and an opportunity for the Amsterdam dance scene to get and to stay together.

Curated by Yordana Rodriguez,Illusionary Rockaz Company


This recurring festival is an invitation to the dancefield to come together, talk, and share ideas. Every edition is curated by a choreographer from Amsterdam. On the 30th of September Dansmakers Podium will for one day be the stage of urban dance. With several high-quality performances, film and an invitation to move yourself.


This time it’s the turn of Yordana Rodriguez from Illusionary Rockaz Company (IRC). From the shared conviction of  Yordana and Dansmakers Amsterdam that the quality of the underground hip-hop is too high to keep underground, we present a diverse and spectacular evening with 4 urban-performances and a stirring jam led by a DJ and MC, where also a winner will be chosen. Looking from a distance is allowed, but dancing with us is encouraged – You better move!


With Junadry Leocaria, Jeffrey “Creepashu” Loewenicht, Sarada Sarita and Niki van Callandt
