June Kids: On the razzle in Ringsted

Ringsted Festival
June 10-14, open Mon-Thu 09:00-16:30, Fri 9:00-13:00; Nørretorv 22, Ringsted; free adm; boernefestival.ringsted.dk; ages 3-12

It’s that time of the year for the family to take a short trip together!

Enjoy concerts, theatre performances, shows and a selection of more than 45 activities for kids at the Ringsted Children’s Festival.

Young ones can participate or just enjoy and watch with the family.

And if they’re feeling creative, they can show off by participating in paint activities, readings and magic games.

For the big ones, there will also be a flea market if you want to take a break from the craziness.

Creative Dancing
June 21, 15:45-16:30; 150kr; Absalon, Sønder Boulevard 73, Cph V; ages 4-6

It’s time for kids to shake their body.

This creative dancing event enables children to be creative with their body and movements.

It encourages them to express themselves through their movements and to remind them that nobody should be entitled to judge if is right or wrong. An episode of the appaling So You Think You Can Dance, it ain’t.

The only rule is to have fun and laugh, laugh and laugh!

Mostly dominated by pop and African savannah music, the line-up also includes ambience, salsa, hip-hop and swing to get those jazz hands working!

Bring your kids and feel the beat!
