DIES birthday cake

Saturday February 4, 15:00 – 17:00 @ USC canteen

On Monday the 6th of February, Leidance is turning 9 years old. We can’t let this special day go by without celebrating it. Therefore, we will bake a cake for you all to enjoy. Come join us this Saturday for some deliciously free cake! ❤

Monthly drinks

Tuesday February 7, 20:30 – 23:00 @ cafe de Keyzer

Beer, wine, FREE bittergarnituur and a lot of chatting is to be caught up on. Let’s get together again at our usual cafe. As usual, we’ll take care of the snacks as you bring the good vibes.

NTDS prep day

Saturday February 18, 10:00 – 16:00 @ USC

With this year’s NTDS coming closer, we will organize a prep day again, so that those participating (especially those joining for the first time), can ask all their questions and all the basics about competing in the NTDS. We will also have some technique classes, prepare the team presentation and offer private lessons to those interested. Not joining the NTDS? Not to worry, you may still join the classes!

Jumanji movie night

Saturday February 18,  19:00 – 22:00 @ Vierlinghlaan 234, Leiden

After having danced the whole day, we take a nice rest while educating ourselves on this year’s NTDS theme: Jumanji. We will be watching at least one of the movies, maybe two if we find the time, and like always, Leidance will provide free snacks and drinks.

Ballroom practice

Tuesday February  21, 21:15 – 23:00 @ USC Multifunctional hall

During these hours there is room for free practice time for ballroom! Little or no ex­pe­rien­ce? No problem! There will be more advanced dancers present to help you get through your first steps. Open and free to everyone with a USC sub­scrip­tion (or buy a day card for €7,15-). You can come find us in the USC multifunctional hall!

Leidance annual dance gala

Saturday February 25, 20:00 – 01:00 @ Wesseling The Hague
Theme: Vegas Casino

Room 1: Ballroom
Room 2: Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba

Buy your tickets here!

Finally! On the 25th of February it’s time for our annual Leidance gala! There will be fancy outfits and lots of dancing. We have 2 rooms: one for ballroom (standard and latin) and one for salsa, bachata and kizomba. It is a great time to (re)connect with fellow Leidance members and members of our sister organisations. The theme is Vegas Casino, so bring a bag of money – or don’t. No worries, there will be no actual money gambling 😉 – have a whiskey or cocktail and find yourself a fancy outfit. In the meantime, practise your best dance moves for this night full of fun.
