As Spring is a factual reality (even if Danish weather seems to disagree), dancing seems to pop up everywhere.
First, we had the annual Dance Day (Dansens Dag). Unfortunately, out-of-nowhere-work disrupted my plans of attending the much free fun that day … but that is no excuse to leave my dancing shoes in the closet.
I was lucky to catch one of this season’s last Dance Salon at The Royal Danish Theatre.
On selected Sundays the balcony of the theatre is open to anyone who wishes to dance – and you do not have to bring a partner, because a part of the fun is to be fixed up with a new dancing partner all through the session.
This Sunday’s lesson was waltz and slow jive (originally the instructor wanted us to do rock’n’roll, but somehow kicks and flowing skirts do not match too many people in a beautifully decorated antique room …!)
During two hardworking hours I managed to dance with 3 different partners, male and female. It can be quite difficult to find a common level to work with when you do not know each other beforehand, but the dancing itself has a certain way to make it work anyway. We sure had fun!
If you also feel like trying out your talent on the dancefloor – and cannot wait until the free season is up again in Autumn – then join the fun at Fru Bugges Danseinstitut.
They arrange minor dance events all through Summer, especially on Fridays, and they guarantee loads of laughing in return. You can also book them to your house if your party needs a little spicing up.
