An introduction to Slow Bal

An introduction to Slow Bal

Slow Ball classes will start again in September. That’s why it’s high time for some introductory workshops in Slow Bal!

During these dance lessons you will get to know this elegant and fun swing dance. The classes are for anyone who likes to give Slow Bal a try. Whether you are curious or considering taking a course in September.

During a 1.5-hour workshop we will teach you the basic step of Slow Bal. Of course we also add a cool move and some styling, so that at the end of the workshop you can have a nice dance by yourself- with your partner of course.

We have two options:

Dancing in times of corona

Unfortunately, there are still a number of corona measures that you should take into account:

  • Normally we switch partners during the workshop. This is not allowed yet, and we will therefore not do it during the workshops. It is therefore important that you register with a partner. If you register without a partner, we will do our best to match you.
  • Please note: we do not adhere to a traditional male-female ratio. So feel free to take on the role (leader or follower) you want.
  • During class we keep as much distance from other couples as possible. At least 1.5 meters.
  • The bar is closed. Do you want something to drink? Then bring some yourself.
