Events & Agenda
Every week during the academic year the association gives members the opportunity to practice their dance skills during practice hour. This is the ideal place to practice new steps, work on technique, and learn from other dancers. Free for members. Non-members pay €2,50, the first time is free.
The weekly dance practices will take place on Saturday from 11:00 until 13:00. Both Argentine Tango and Ballroom music will be played, on two separate parts of the field.
There is enough space for 30 people to practice, the current limit for groups with a mix of 26- and 27+. Please see the sign up form for more information regarding the rules.
Don't forget to pick up your Members card and Knaek during the Blue Suede Shoes events in the upcoming weeks!
What is the Knaek?! With the student discount app Knaek you receive the highest student discounts in Delft, all other student cities in the Netherlands and on online orders.
We offer Technique training sessions for our members who know the basic steps of ballroom dancing, and want to improve their dance skills. Our own Remy Kabel will teach you the finer aspects of a specific step or technique every week. For these sessions you don't need a partner, so everyone can join!
The training sessions will take place on Mondays, at X TU Delft.
Beginners: 20:00 - 21:00, suited for everyone with less than 2 years experience.
Advanced: 21:15 - 22:15, suited for everyone with more than 2 years experience.
The training sessions will focus on both Ballroom Standard and Ballroom Latin. The sessions will start on 3 May, and will be held every week until 14 June.
Argentine Tango Training
Great tango dancing requires great technique and that is exactly what you will learn in Blue Suede Shoes technique training sessions.
Silvia Mezzasoma will guide you on essential basic techniques from walking, the embrace to musicality. You do not have to sign up with a partner. A basic level and knowledge - at least 1 semester - of tango is handy, but not required. However, the sessions are also extremely well suited for all levels, especially those advanced dancers willing to go the extra mile.
The training sessions will take place on Tuesdays from 19:30 until 21:00, at X TU Delft. There will be 7 sessions in total. The sessions will start on 4 May, and will be held every week until 15 June.
