Just to mention a few highlights in the Pierewaaiers’ history: we performed in Syria, France, Austria, England, Denmark and dancing, instead of ice-skating, from town to town in the province of Friesland imitating the ‘Friesche Elfstedentocht’ (Frisian Eleven Town Tour).

In 2005 the Pierewaaiers were the only attending Dutch dance group in Cork, Ireland, on the occasion of the festivities in Cork, the then European Capital of Culture.

In 2006 the Pierewaaiers participated in the World Record Clog Dancing in Melbourne, Australia, by means of a digital connection. It was our first performance ever to take place at 3 o’clock in the morning.
