Leidance Black & White party

Uncategorized
September 29 we had our first party of the year! The party was organised by our party comission Festijn and the theme was Black & White. It took place in the USC and we had two rooms, one for ballroom and one for salsa, bachata and kizomba. This party wasn't your typical dance party because we managed to spice it up a little! We even danced to Bizzey and Yung Felix. When the party finished at 01:30 we didn't want to stop yet and we still had about 3 "this time really the last one"-songs. Luckily everybody helped to clean up and make everything look like nothing ever happend, thanks to your help we could leave the USC on time, so thank you all for helping! It was an amazing…

SAIL Leidance

Events, News
Hey everyone, Do you hate road traffic in Leiden? Elderly ladies clogging up alleyways, pesky children in your way as you try to make it somewhere on time? We have a workaround. On the 30th of August Leidance will take to the canals for some quality sightseeing around our city. No road traffic, no pesky kids. We have room for 12 people (1 boat), or 24 (2 boats) if enough people sign up. Here's how it works: reserve a spot on the Leidance website (https://www.sdaleidance.nl/product/drijvende-borrel/) for €14,99 and you're set! We ask you to pay in advance so as to prevent no-showers on the day itself. Should the event be cancelled for whatever reason, your money will of course be refunded. If you're late we might be able to pick…

Workshop Ballroom

Events, News
After a very succesful workshop from Marcel in February, we had a second one! Where the last workshop focussed on the looks of ballroom, this one focussed on connection. While holding a small ball between their bodies, couples had to move through the room, without dropping the ball. Quite challenging, but it worked wonders for the connection! Attention was also given to watching the room. When the dance floor is crowded, you don't want to bump into other couples or step on other peoples feet. That requires quite some teamwork, since a leader can only see part of the room and the follower can see another part. By forcing us to dance in a very small space of the big room, Marcel challenged us to really look out for eachother.…
