Blues on the Border

Welcome in Enschede for a day of blues dancing in picturesque Twente. What better way to start this new (hopefully) recurring event than with our traditional Halloween theme! On Saturday the 26th of October we will be organizing a lazy afternoon of workshops and a party where you can transform yourself into the scariest creatures (or just dress up, or just come as yourself). The live tunes will be provided by the amazing BluesShack. BluesShack is a blues band founded especially for blues dancing in 2016. They love to play a varied slow and medium tempo blues repertoire.

The workshops will be taught by Marco from Berlin, accompanied by our own Jonne. Marco has been dancing since 2012, starting with swing and one year later discovering blues which he fell immediately and madly in love with it. Loving the creativity and freedom of blues, he likes to focus on lead- and follow technique in his classes to give his students simple tools to express themselves with.

16.00 – 18.00: Workshops
19.00 – 20.00: Drop-in beginner workshop
From 20.00: Halloween Bluesdancing Party with Bluesshack

Both workshops & party will be at De Tor, Walstraat 21 in the city center of Enschede. You can find it within 10 minutes of walking distance from the Enschede train station! There is a bar where you can get drinks. Payment is only possible in cash.
