Helma Klooss originally created the Danskaravaan for the Koorenhuis, the music school of The Hague. In the first years, she and Constance van Duinen developed and produced the festival. The first performance took place during the celebration of the 750th anniversary of the city of The Hague. Since then the Danskaravaan has made its yearly appearance, not only in The Hague, but in Rotterdam and Amsterdam as well.

Helma Klooss has an MA in Performance Studies (NYU). Since 1982 she has frequently written newspaper articles about dance. From 1994 till 2002, she worked for the Koorenhuis. In 2003, she set up the Danskaravaan foundation, through which she continues to stage the Danskaravaan.
