Leidance Lights

At the 15th of December we had a 'Light' themed party at Quintus. Any sparkly, glittery and/or decorated-with-lights outfit was welcome at this Leidance feast!

Workshop Friesenrock

Events, News

After some of the moves we finally understood why it was called Knopentanz, as more than once we found our limbs being tangled. Luckily we didn’t get really dizzy and we even tried a few lifts. It was fun to try Friesenrock, thanks to Michael for giving the workshop and Simon for giving us this idea!

Kizombie

Dressing up as creepy as you can, dancing latin all night long, having fun with fellow-Leidancers... What's not to love about the 'Kizombie' party?! Many members really made an effort and showed up in creepy costumes. Thanks to Gino and Andrew the music was on point as well. De Eeuwige Student was our host for this party and the Board turned this venue into a scary dance place. If you want to see pictures of the 'Kizombie' party, click here!
