Upside Down will be held mostly in different locations within Dok Noord. We’ll create a buzzing swing dance hub in this charming historical factory and harbour area. The wonderful news is that all activities can be reached on foot and you can easily ping-pong around from one to the next! 

Some activities will be held at other venues, but a maximum of 20 min walking distance from Dok Noord.


Danspunt refers to the old cotton shed that has been transformed into a dance hall with a wooden floor. This uniquely renovated hall in a historical industrial setting is now a dance location where various dance schools and organisations are located. It will be our ballroom for the evenings and location for some classes (Swing Expansion and Startrack).
