Registration open for 52nd European Tournament for Dancing Students

A mainstay in the life of many a student dancer, the European Tournament for Dancing Students is a semi-annual social Latin/Ballroom tournament. These days the tournament regularly serves the dancing (competition and social party), food and sleeping needs of 500 to 700 student dancers. Do you want to experience this? Then contact the teamcaptain through teamcaptain(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)msdvletsdance.nl.

As far as the level of dancing is concerned. If you’ve followed about 20 Latin/Ballroom lessons you’ll be able to compete in the lowest of 4 classes, the Amateurs class. With more experience you’ll be able to place yourself for the higher classes such as Professionals, Masters and Champions. In these you’ll be expected to dance with more technique and dance additional dances such as Samba, Viennese Waltz, Slowfox and Paso Doble. When you are nearing competition level you’ll register in the open class, where dedicated competition dancers battle it out for first place.

You can find a lot of other information on the website, (http://etds.eu/), or just post your question in our Facebook group.

Salsa Men’s & Ladies styling workshop

For those of you who want to go a bit further than only doing the salsa steps, this is your chance. During this workshop you’ll learn how to improve your dancing skills by making everything you do a bit more fancy! :P So for the men this means doing more than only looking at the woman you’re dancing with. For the ladies this means being even sexier than you normally already are (if this sounds as a bit too much, stick with ‘fancy’).

Salsa class

This will all take place Monday the 28th of April at ‘Stichting Trefcentrum Wittevrouwenveld’ (Edisonstraat 4). We’ll start at 20.00h and the workshop will take 2 hours. The lesson will be provided by Jason Leckie (dancepartner).

Costs will be €7,50 for members and €10,- for non-members

After the workshop we can dance a little more till 23.00h, so you get to practice your new moves!

If you want to follow this workshop, please sign-up during the lessons or send an email to accie(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)msdvletsdance.nl
