Dear Dance friends from all over the world,

You’ve been anxiously waiting for news about the big celebration of Roy’s 50th birthday party and here it is, the information you have been waiting for!

We’ve made the final arrangement with our new venue. The event is going to be held in The Bonte Wever (Assen). The venue that has hotelrooms as well,  offers so much more then just the dance hall. People can enjoy the swimming pool, spa, bowling alley and much more.

Stadsbroek 17,9405 BK ASSEN

And if you still had not enough of dancing,  partying and being together, we will offer you an amazing tour after this weekend. This Dutch Spring Tour  will be arranged by a third party agent for those who are interested.

Enjoy a couple of extra days of sightseeing and fun.

And parties in the evening at the Dutch Dance Academy. 

The Dutch Spring Tour starts on Monday the 14th and ends on Thursday the 17th and it is including stay in a hotel near Roy’s dance centre and transfer from the Bonte Wever on Monday the 14th.

About the party.

What if you are a dance professional and you travel the world to teach? Ending up with friends all over this planet? And you turn 50 in 2025, what do you do?? You throw a huge party open to everybody that loves dance, that’s what you do!

And you are all invited to join…..
