Delft Student Dance Association Blue Suede Shoes
D.S.D.A. Blue Suede Shoes is a student association aimed at providing young dancers of ballroom and argentine tango styles with a social society, within which they can make friends and explore dancing to their heart’s content. Due to the variety of dancers and their respective interests D.S.D.A. Blue Suede Shoes aims at providing both for the socially invested dancers and the competitive dancers by means of group activities, high quality workshops and social events. Making the association more attractive to new students taking classes and keeping the independent advanced dancers involved with it is essential for its future. For this reason, the association strives to structure itself horizontally, with the experienced dancers actively involved with the beginners by helping at practice hours.
D.S.D.A. Blue Suede Shoes started to make its presence known during the introduction week for new students (the Owee) in 2016. Here we presented the association with just a foldable table, a few lovely friends, a lot of enthusiasm and of course with dancing. The dream of the founding members was to create a close community in which dancers could practice and have enough opportunities to develop their dancing skills. Moreover, they wanted to show how fun dancing could be by having social dance events, socialize with other dancers and organize parties where everyone could dance the night away. This dream came true, and led within a few years to a thriving community with over 100 dancers.
