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.

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.

Our recap from yesterdays intermediate Slow Bal workshop. The dancing is nice, but look at this beautiful room 😍😍😍. It's the perfect setting for Slow Bal. (Balletschool Staluse Pera in Rotterdam)

We worked on the Slow Bal promenade with grapevines and a half turn slide ending. We also added an inside turn. Thanks to @balronin for the inspiration!

"People don't slow dance nearly as much as they should. And I love doing my small part to keep it alive."

This scene from the Amazone Prime serie #thisisus (great serie by the way) really says it all. Slow dancing is special. And no, it is not only for new lovers where one tries to steal a kiss. If more people could take the time to connect with each other and with the music.... forget about everything that is going on in your mind and tune in with your body... wouldn't the world just be a better place?

Slowfeet Studio behind the scenes. Yesterday we had a very good brainstorm session about the future of our little dance school. Thinking about long term changes we can make, but also about quick fixes that we need to make now COVID is back in the game. These are challenging times!
