Otterdance is a furry club event in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. It's unusual for the region in that takes place in a regular club space, like Frolic or Club Animalz, rather than a rented hall, like the Dutch events Dutch Furdance and Furrave.

Otterdance was created by Jack Newhorse as a subsidiary of Tom Geller Productions [1]. At the end of Otterdance 3, Jack Newhorse announced that future events would be run by Stichting Otterdam[2].

About 50 people attended the first edition ("Otterdance 2022") in the Central Station space at WORM in Rotterdam on 3 July 2022. As the Otterdance 2022 website shows, the event featured DJs Pup Jaffa, Duzzled, and Lynn Drumm.

It was originally scheduled (as "Otterdance I") for 29 March 2020 but was postponed due to restrictions enacted by the Dutch government[3] in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
