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 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.

Do you remember your first dance lesson? ❤

Yesterday this couple took their first Slow Bal steps during a private lesson. Great to see so much fun on the dance floor while discovering how to connect to each other and the music. That's what it is all about. 🥰

Some of you asked me: where did Luciën go? Well, I can tell you he is still very much alive and kickin'. (Picture to prove it).🤭

Unfortunately for Slowfeet Studio, Luciën moved to the other side of the country. He won't be teaching any more weekly classes here in Rotterdam, but I'm sure we will see him back for some Slow Bal dances during workshops and parties. 🕺💃

He told me he misses you all very much, so greetings from Luciën to all of you!🥰
