Lessons

When: wednesday
7 pm – 8 pm (silver)
8 pm – 9 pm (bronze)

Where: USC Universum, Science Park, studio 2

Costs: see site of the USC

 

AmsterDance organizes dancing lessons in collaboration with the USC. These lessons are at bronze (beginners) and silver (advanced) level. These lessons take place at Wednesday evenings from 7-8 and 8-9 p.m. at USC Science Park. SDV AmsterDance makes sure you will be able to dance during the lessons: most of the time there are advanced dancers present to substitute for the partner you brought or met at the lessons (and he/she is absent that week). Are you already above silver level? Take a look at our FAQ or send us an email!


Dance evenings

When: Twice a month
wednesday
9 pm – 11 pm

Where: USC Universum, Science Park, studio 2

Costs: Free for members, €3,- for non-members

 

The dancing evenings are the time to practice all you have learned so far in your dancing career and learn new moves from other dancers. Apart from dancing the night away you have the opportunity to get to know the other members of AmsterDance, chat and have a drink. To give the nights a little twist, there sometimes will be a theme such as Halloween, Sinterklaas, Glow in the dark and more! It would be so much fun if everyone dressed as the theme implies. The music is always up to date and adjusted to the theme. Come and dance with us!


Workshops

When: Once a month
wednesday
9 pm – 11 pm

Where: USC Universum, Science Park, studio 2

Costs: €0,- or €3,- for members
€3,- or €5,- for non-members

 

Amsterdance loves to try out new dancing styles and learn more about partner-dancing. That is why every month we organise a single workshop themed in a different dancing style, sometimes even solo-dances. Examples of these dancing styles are discofox, rock & roll and even court dancing. So put on your dancing shoes and try something new with us!


Technique lessons

When: Once a month
wednesday
9 pm – 11 pm

Were: USC Universum, Science Park, studio 2

Costs: Free for members, €3,- for non-members

 

During the AmsterDance technique lessons we venture deeper in to the details of ballroom and latin dancing. The lessons provide a short lecture on one subject of ballroom or latin technique to help you to improve your skills and make your dancing look better then it ever did before! The technique lessons are meant for beginners, as well for advanced dancers. The focus of the lessons can vary between hold, feetwork, arms, et cetera. You don’t have to come every week, because you will pay per lesson, just come and try it!


Dance-café

When: Once every two months
saturday or sunday
3 pm – 5 pm

Were: Mirror Centre, Ter Gouwstraat 3,
1093 JX Amsterdam. Spiegelzaal or Tuinzaal

Costs: €5,- for everyone

 

We want to make sure that the people that are not available on the wednesdays get the opportunity to dance. That is why we decided to recreate the (old) idea of the dance-café. At the dance-café, there will be sit-arrangements, some tasty treats like pies, muffins and cookies and a daylight lit, wooden dance-floor!

 


Events

Twice a year Amsterdance organises a big dance party! In December or Januari there is a christmas ball and in June there is the final ball of the dancing season. During these parties dancing is of course the main activity but the themes of the dances make for a nice change in atmosphere. Our sister organisations are also there and together we make it one hell of a party!

 

Gala

When: see agenda
Where: see agenda
Costs: €10,- to €20,-

SDV AmsterDance invites you to her gala which will be held around December/January. There will be beautiful decorations and some great songs that will make you dance the night away! There will be themes such as ‘Winter Wonderland’, ‘Burlesque’ or ‘Arabian Nights’: every year the commissions suprise us with a new theme. Take your partner with you and come dance in style!

 

Final party

When: see agenda
Where: see agenda
Costs: €10,- to €20,-

To end the academic year with a bang, around June, there will be one last, grand party! The theme of this dance switches every year and knows no limits! Members and friends come together to dance with eachother before the summerbreak starts. There have been themes such as ‘Hipsters VS Hippies’ or ‘Disney’. Let’s dance!

 

KnuffelCup

When: last weekend in April
Where: see agenda
Costs: €3,- to €7,-

The KnuffelCup is a friendly competition for mostly beginners (also advanced). It doesn’t matter if you’re an AmsterDance dancer or not or from Amsterdam or not, everyone can join! Your level will be determined after a general look. Fun is the key during this competition, and to make sure everyone is able to join, dancingshoes and competition clothing are not mandatory. For dance enthousiasts this is THE best option to get a feel of the world of dancing competitions!

Eindfeest


Happy meetings

When: Once a month, see our agenda (front-page)

Where: This switches, also we refer to our agenda

Costs: The costs will vary between €0,- and €10,- for everyone

 

To get to know one another better, once a month there will be a non-dance related activity. Not only members are invited, but also their friends, non-members and members of our sister associations. There will be a discount for members! What are these activities you might ask? Think of a movie-night, ice skating, swimming, karaoke, et cetera. If you have an idea, you should definitely send us an e-mail (see ‘contact’ in the menu).
