Monthly workshops

Next to our weekly classes and our social dance on Wednesdays, every four weeks we organize a big party with live music and additional theme workshops during that day. You can subscribe for each workshop individually. Workshops will have a maximum of 20 dancers. So sign up to save your spot!

Saturday, July 20 – Cabaret

On the 20th of July we’ve got three workshops for you:

  • 13:00 – 15:00 Juicy Blues choreo

In the first hour we will work on smooth solo Blues moves and isolations. In the second hour we’ll teach you a choreography by Dexter Santos & Joe DeMers danced to the song Hound Dog.

Teacher: Lotte Dijkstra

  • 16:00 – 18:00 A Blues to Seduce

In this workshop we will learn a slow sensual routine on high heels. Those who are interested can perform it at the cabaret night in the evening. It will be a sexy and flexy choreo, using elements from chair dancing, striptease and pole dance floorwork.

Outfit requirements:
Make sure to wear something that you can move comfortably in (perhaps even upside down) like leggings or shorts. If you wear shorts, be sure to cover your knees with knee socks, leg warmers or knee pads.

Don’t wear your nicest pair of heels, as they might damage a bit from dragging on the floor. Avoid heels that slip off your feet – ankle straps are your friend! You can always bring a ribbon to tie around your shoes if you don’t have a pair with ankle straps. If you’d rather dance without heels, wear socks so that you can slide on or drag your feet.

Other than that: Wear something you feel sexy in! It’s a sensual choreo, so we won’t be offended if you like to show some skin. If you’d rather keep them guessing, feel free to rock a more covered up outfit.

Teacher: Iris Hagemans

  • 20:00 – 22:00 (Absolute) beginners

In this workshops we’ll teach you the basics of blues dancing that will enable you to dance the night away at the party in the evening!

Absolute beginners

Before the monthly Saturday night party you can start your Blues dancing career at our (Absolute) Beginners workshops.

We start with a 30 minutes introduction of the basic steps and the lead/follow dynamic. This part is mainly for new people, but even if you have taken some classes, it is always good to practice your basics over and over again. It’s the most important skill you will ever learn! We switch partners and roles, so you can become an allround social dancer.

Following that, we spend about an hour with a different theme every month. We close off the class with a half hour social dancing on beginner friendly Blues and Jazz music. This means songs with a clear beat and suitable speed, so that you can practice what you just have learned. Slowly the other party dancers will arrive and join you on the dance floor so you can try some moves with little more experienced dancers. You will notice that in our scene they are very willing to dance with you, like your teachers!

When the party officially starts, you will know enough steps and moves to dance all night. So don’t leave before the band has stopped, they are playing for you too!
