29-07-2019 Dizzy Blues & Slowbal Night

29 July 2019 @ 20:00 - 23:00

We would like to invite you to a special night of social dancing at Dizzy: Blues & Slow Bal all in one!

Why Blues & Slow Bal? The Music!
They are quite distinct dances that have their own history: Blues continued being blues, changing through time in the form of various idiom dances and styles reflecting it’s African American Roots; Slow Bal is an umbrella name for some kinds of dances that were danced to slow jazz music. Modern Slow Bal is a mix of the old timers dance with influences of nowadays balboa, Lindy Hop and Blues.

The time and cultures from which all these dances originated created an overlap! It happens that a lot of the music that makes us all move is actually the same! Think about Vaudeville, Blues, Jazz, Ballrooms, Slow Swing, you name it!

Isabel from Blues Dance Rotterdam is in charge of the Blues music, and for Slow Bal we will have Lucien from Slowfeet Studio playing his favorite tunes!

The entrance is free of charge, so keep your bottles at home and spend your Euro’s at the bar. Dizzy has a lovely selection of drinks available and the loveliest staff to help you out. If you join straight after work you will be happy to know that Viki V. has taken over Dizzy’s kitchen and has the best Vegan food available for everyone’s delight from 18.00h. No more excuses, come out and dance with us!
