Open classes

Open classes september 2021

Hope you had a great summer!

Thank you for giving your interest in The Student Dance Factory, we are looking forward to meeting you and dancing together.

You probably have already heard what our association is about, either during the AID or on our website. However, to give a short summary, the Student Dance Factory (SDF) is the student dance association of Wageningen. We offer regular dance lessons for all levels, in which the dance styles modern and urban are practised. Next to that, we also have a demo team, called Wagalicious dance crew, that performs and participates in competitions. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or advanced dancer, we have something for everyone! All our dance classes are organized by enthusiastic members of our Wagalicious dance crew. “Dancing for students, by students,” is the core of our association!
As an association, we also find “gezelligheid” and fun very important. That is why we organize a workshop and a social activity every period. The workshops focus on dance styles that are not covered during the regular lessons, for example, classical ballet and breakdance. These workshops are also sometimes given by professional dance teachers. The social activities are mainly focused on socializing and can vary from movie nights to drinks and pub quizzes. Do you have any creative ideas for a fun activity? Come and have a look at our social activity committee! We also have our own photo-media committee. This committee is involved in creating content for our social media channels and filming our dances during the lessons. For more information about our committees, you can visit our website www.studentdancefactory.com or email us for direct questions.

Do you want to join our association? Come along during our open classes in September (more information below)! These lessons are completely non-binding and serve as an impression of our association. Would you like to become a member? Go to our website www.studentdancefactory.com/membership for the registration form.

Due to the great interest we received at the AID in the open lessons, we decided to split the lessons in half to give everybody the opportunity to try them out. We ask you to try out a maximum of one urban class and one contemporary class in these first two weeks. After our open classes, our regular schedule of one urban class and one contemporary class of an hour every week resumes. Below you will find the schedule for the open classes and each link to subscribe for them.

From Monday 30 August 12:30 onwards* you can register via the links. Please be quick with registering for the classes since we expect them to book out quickly. If your preferred class is already fully booked, please check if any other classes are still accepting responses. Due to COVID-19, we can only offer a limited number of spots in the dance room. However, you can also follow a try-out class any other time during the year. If you want to join for a try-out class after our open classes, please contact us beforehand which date you would like to come and which dance style you prefer. We hope to see you soon in our dance classes!

Our classes on Wednesday 1 September and 8 September are given in Sporthal de Vlinder. The adres is Hollandseweg 7 (https://goo.gl/maps/reAGvhUY9gQkMybx6). Please keep in mind that you need to enter the hall via the backside of the building and enter the dance room via the lift. There will be people from our association welcoming you so you won’t get lost.

Furthermore, our dance team Wagalicious also has an open training. Wagalicious Dance Crew is the selection team of the Student Dance Factory. The crew consists of dancers who are more experienced or advanced, and who like to perform and participate in dance competitions. Both urban and contemporary styles are given during the classes. To become a part of Wagalicious Dance Crew you have to join the auditions either in September or February. It is only possible to join the crew if you are a member for a whole year and pay selection contribution (see www.studentdancefactory.com/membership for the prices). By paying the selection contribution you are also allowed to follow the regular classes on Wednesday. Please also read the house rules of Wagalicious, which you can find at www.studentdancefactory.com/regulations.

Our Wagalicious dance crew open classes are on Friday 3 September between 19.30-20.30u and 20.30-21.30u, also here you can attend one to give everybody a chance. Our Wagalicious classes are given in Sports Centre de Bongerd in Sports Hall 3. Please wait in front of the Bongerd to be picked up by one of our crew members. Therefore, please be on time because we have to enter the Bongerd together!

Below you will find the schedule for these open classes and the link to subscribe for the class. On Friday 10 September between 19:30-21:30u, we will hold our auditions for the dance crew.
