ABOUT STICHTING Free-DOM

Connecting generations.
Embracing the Hip Hop culture.
And spreading the sound of Free-DOM!

The love for Hip Hop, the respect for the culture, the passion for art, and the ambition to create was what was missing in the Utrecht dance community.

It motivated two friends from different generations to found the community-based platform and international dancefestival we now know as: Freedom City.

Our desire to connect creatives starts with the two founders.

On the one hand we have OG Break/Hip Hop teacher and dancer with more than 20 years of experience in the hip hop dansscene: Raymond den Uijl. One of the founders of The Illusionary Rockaz Crew, now Company; the first break crew in Utrecht. IRC has proven itself as an artistic versatile Hip Hop oriented dance and theatre company.

On the other hand we have the young blood entrepreneur: Raymond ‘Baba’ Ramdihal. A Krump dancer, teacher and Hip Hop culture fanatic. Who keeps pushes the platform and festival to innovate and evolve as a high-end and yet warm community event. For the lovers of Hip Hop culture both inside and outside the city of Utrecht. 

Each one teach one is what we stand for and carry out. The transfer of knowledge goes back and forth between old and new generations. Exchange is fundamental in Hip Hop to stay connected with the people who build the culture. Freedom City provides the community in Utrecht with the greatest (inter)national masters and brings battles to the center of the field.  

The sound of Free-DOM has been heard since 2018. Since we started working in schools, in the suburbs, out on the streets, in the center and on the big stages. We bring performances, masterclasses, dance lessons, spontaneous jams and events. 

Freedom City is a community-based platform that puts Utrecht on the map as an European dance capital. We are proud the bring to you the most active dance battles in the scene! And with dance and music we celebrate diversity in all its forms, shapes and sizes.
