If you are curious, just come by. Bring a friend or someone to participate in the workshop with. In the current COVID-19 situation we are allowed to partner dance, but we can’t allow switching between dance partners at our events or activities. If you don’t have a partner for the evening, we could help you find someone that would like to do the workshop with you. For this event we have enough capacity for a total of 10 dance couples, to maintain a 1,5 meter between dance couples, but if the dance floor is full we have a pantry in which 8 people can hangout and have a chat with our members, until some space has opened up on the dance floor.

Places on the dance floor will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis.
