The dozens of foreign artists who bring the best of themselves, are accomodated in host families.  

Each host family takes a couple of artists in house. If a family wants to take in more than two artists, this is alway their choice.  

The dancers and musicians arrive on Wednesday and leave the Wednesday after, so they stay a full week with your family. On Monday, there are no performances sceduled. Everyone gets a day of rest and can fraternize with their host families.  

As a host family you are responsible for the transport to and from the festival, the necessary lunches and hot meals, and the love of a warm home.  

Sometimes this start by trial and error, and communication is not always evident. But taking the world into your home is worth the it. THe friendship yo will get in return, will quickly let you forget a maybe bumpy start and the wonderful memories will remain! 

Below you can find some testimonials from a couple of our host families.
