Exchange program

On Friday afternoon we want to explore some of the city and make some new international friends in our optional exchange program… and of course we dance. Roughly it looks like this: city walk in the late morning (yes, also the red light district), boat tour through the Amsterdam canals with live music, food, drinks and dancing. Playing old dutch games like ‘koekhappen’ and after a shower break having dinner together at the party venue just before the party starts.
