The folkdance group "The Amelanders" was established on the 11th of January, 1962, and is affiliated with the Federation of folkdance groups in Nederland.
During the tourist season the group performs at least once a week in one of island's villages.

Besides that exchanges take place with similar groups on the mainland, nationally and internationally.  Since its existence the group visited England, Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Israel and Sweden and wherever they went they met with great succes with their island dances.
 
The program consists of about 20 dances, among others some sailors' dances, a reel, the hornpipe and the kerchiefdance.  The group is accompanied by accordion players.
