Deirdre and Joost from Slowfeet Studio give a dance workshop in Slow Bal. It is a playful and elegant partner dance from the 1940s to slow jazz music from that time. Slow Ball is a Swing dance, just like the more famous Charleston and Lindy Hop. Although Slow Balboa was originally a romantic dance, today it is more about the connection you make with your partner and the music. Regardless of whether that’s your partner, a casual acquaintance, or even someone you’ve never met!


6:15 PM Mahers Kitchen Buffet open (optional)
20.00 Start Slow Ball Workshop
8.45 pm End of workshop, start of free dancing
8:45 p.m. Photobooth open

Participation in the workshop is free. No need to bring a partner!

Before the workshop there is the opportunity to eat at Maher’s Kitchen (yummy!). Book by Thursday via the website of De Doelen!

Maher’s Kitchen

Before the workshop and the dancing there is the opportunity to eat in the Doelen Studio. We have tasted it ourselves and it is an absolute must.

Syrian chef Maher Al Sabbagh is back with his tasty buffet in the Doelen Studio. Nothing is too crazy for him. Time and again he surprises us with ancient Palestinian dishes, Sicilian anti-pasti, Syrian soups, but also traditional Dutch desserts as hang-up.

The buffet opens at 18.00 hr
