Dance classes in Rotterdam with Slowfeet Studio

Vintage swing dance to slow jazz music

We love to dance and we love jazz music. That is why at Slowfeet Studio we have a passion for dancing to slow swing jazz music. Our focus is on Slow Bal, one of the most beautiful of the vintage swing dances. This partner dance has a lovely relaxed flow. It’s graceful and playful at the same time. It is also a relatively unknown dance, which in the meantime is gaining more and more fame. Want to try it out?

Swing dance classes in Rotterdam

Swing is all about having fun. During the dance lessons you will learn how to connect with your dance partner. We teach you moves and techniques with which you can improvise to the music yourself. Register as a couple or only as a single follow or lead. In the lessons we change dance partners as much as possible.

Swing Socials

We love to party. You can put the moves and techniques that you learn during the dance lessons into practice during one of the swing dance parties in Rotterdam or abroad. And believe us when we say: Swing is everywhere! Go to the events page to view our upcoming parties. Would you like an overview of all Swing parties in Rotterdam? Then go to the Roffaswing website.

Private lessons are perfect to develop your own skills in a pace that suits you best. If you feel reluctant to take your first dance steps in a group, a private lesson beforehand can help to gain more confidence.

The closed connection and slow pace of the dance makes Slow Bal perfect for your wedding. With some romance or some humour (or both), it will be a memorable dance for sure. (Photo: Vintage Fotografie)

Coming up next week: an interview with @skoglundanni and @gasper.balboaman. I asked them about the connection they have. When I watch them dance, I always feel like I'm peeking into a very private and intimate moment. Anni explains why this is probably the case, and why their dancing is - in a way - very private. ❤

Coming up: a new interview with two of my Slow Bal heroes, Anni and Gasper from Sweden! 🥰

We talked a lot about the magic of Slow Bal and the connection they have on the dance floor. But also on how Slow Bal is growing all over the world. Like Gasper says in this short fragment. A few years back, when you mentioned Slow Bal, hardly anyone knew what you were talking about. Luckily these days are over!🥳

Come out of hibernation with us! Because let's be honest, we haven't done much dancing lately. So let's get back into the Slow Bal vibes. The coming four Saturdays we teach 'Out of Hibernation' sessions. We focus on connection, moves and techniques you know to improvise them. Self evaluation and giving and receiving feedback are a big part of the class (and really one of the best ways to learn). 

So join us! 
More info on our website.
