About us

Home / About us

SDA Leidance is a student dance association that focuses on partner dances – namely ballroom dancing, salsa, kizomba, bachata, Argentinian tango and rock ‘n roll. We aim to provide a social element to the dance classes provided by Leiden’s University Sports Centre (or USC for short). We do this by organising social dancing nights, parties, workshops, movie nights and a plethora of other activities.

Funded just over 4 years ago, we are a young association that is growing rapidly. Over the course of the 2016-2017 academic year we have seen our member count double (getting close to 150) and our reputation among other dance associations soar. As we are a host to very different kinds of dancing, our activities branch out from basement kizomba parties to fancy ballroom tournaments that last a whole weekend. There’s something for everyone!

Our members are a tight group of friends that stay in touch through our Whatsapp groups and Facebook. It’s a mixed bunch: the majority of our members are Dutch but we also boast a large number of internationals (close to a third of our total number) who have had little trouble fitting in with the rest. We pride ourselves on being an accessible and welcoming group without restrictions or forced participation.

The membership fee for 2017-2018 will be €30.
