Intro to Ballroom Dancing (live music!) 

First of all: Standard partner dance is a lot of fun, an elegant sport, and a great oportunity to meet new people and dive into this bit of central european culture! Many young people across Switzerland/Germany/Austria (and of course Russia) practice it, and so does the student community in Zürich. At this social dance event, you don't have to sign up in couples but we will change partners in between among all participants :)

Are you looking for an oportunity to take your best suit/dress out to an elegant event with live music? For a dancing partner for the upcoming semester? Or are you just curious about ballroom dancing and want to watch people flying across the dance floor following a Viennese Waltz? Then join us at this event :D

Program: The dance club TC Academia Zürich offers us the unique possibility to join an introductory workshop (5.30-7pm) covering the basics in Dicso Fox, Slow Waltz, and Cha-Cha-Cha. It is meant to be open to everyone, no prior knowledge is required! The workshop is followed by a whole social dance evening (starting at 7.30pm) with live music by Tanzkapelle Macadamia, chilling around the dance floor, taking pictures in suits and dresses and socializing. Please bring your own food to have dinner during the break.

Dresscode: Formal [suit/long dress] is recommended, casual-formal [shirt/short dress/blouse] is okay too, just don't come in ripped jeans, please. You get a free (soft) drink if you dress up nicely!

Code of conduct: We know that being as close to someone you don't know can be intimidating. But don't be shy: Dancing is all about knowing each other's limits and following certain set rules (of dancing steps as well as social behavior). There will be no reggaeton-like close movements!

Follow-up courses: The social dance evening is organized by TC Academia and Tanzquotient. Check their homepages for courses in the upcoming semester :)

Polyball is a huge ETH ballroom event in the main building with a looong tradition - even Einstein went there to dance! Check out their homepage and dont miss the start of the ticket sale.
