Kingdomday is a day where we pay tribute to Afro dance culture. According to Artist in Residence Rabba, different genres from different art disciplines descend from Afro culture.
Kindomday will therefore be an afternoon and evening full of music and dance for all Afro-lovers.

In the afternoon you can follow one or both workshops by two of the Netherlands best Afro dancers Devante and Suela, both from Amsterdam and each with their own Afrostyle! A workshop (+ the dance battle) costs €10, do you register for both workshops (+ the dance battle)? Then they cost €15 together.
During the Dance Battle we will then demonstrate what the different styles are in the Afro dance world. A jury and the public decide who wins! Don't want to attend a workshop but do want to participate in the Battle? You can enter for €7!
