Welcome to the website of folkdancegroup Drieske Nijpers! 

Our group was founded in june 1967 by a few enthusiasts in a little Flemish town called Sint-Gillis-Waas (Belgium). Now, more than 50 years later, we still practice on a weekly basis. Our mission is to preserve the Flemish heritage of dances, flagwaving and folkmusic. On top of that we pass traditions, skills and knowledge to the next generation of dancers and flagwavers. 

Every year we perform on several occasions in our own country, as well as in other countries. In the past we already had the pleasure to travel and perform in Slovakia, Poland, Portugal, Finland, South-Africa, Germany, Hungary, Romenia and many others. 

Do you organise a festival in your country and are you looking for traditional folkdancers with a modern twist? Then look no further and invite us!

Every 5 years, we organize our own international festival, called Drieskes Kerremes. We have had guests from all over the world and make sure they get to know the Belgian hospitality by staying in guestfamilies. The last festival was organized in 2023.
