Leo + folk dancing

Leo van der Heijden, purchaser at Facilities & Services: 'It doesn't all have to be perfect'

'I dance because the music and the moveĀ­ment transport me to another world. When I am folk dancing I forget everything else,' says Leo van der Heijden. For ten years now, he has been teaching Nirkoda folk dancing club in Veenendaal (the name is Hebrew for 'let's dance'). Folk dancing is social, which is important too. And don't call it stodgy. 'You can dance with different levels of energy. Some dances are like fitness training. Folk dancing is the most undervalued activity there is.'
