The first edition of the Amsterdamsch Galabal took place in 2019. It was an instant success, receiving a very good review in local newspaper Het Parool. Of course, the venue played a big part. Arti et Amicitiae was the perfect spot for a ball. But the reporter was also pleasantly surprised by the mixture of the audience: as it happened, there were many student ballroom dancers.

The student dancers performed a splendid opening dance. All this created a nice mix of young and old. The dance floor was constantly full. Also thanks to the the great live music by the Netherlands Dance Orchestra. On their play list was a mix of cha cha cha, rumba, quickstep, English waltz, Viennese waltz, jive, tango and paso doble. Exactly what ballroom and latin dancers like to hear.

The second edition of the ball took place at rowing club RIC along the Amstel: another great venue. This was also a very successful bal. Again with an audience of young and old and the musical guidance of the swinging Netherlands Dance Orchestra. The opening dance was performed by student dansers.

We are looking forward to the third edition of the ball on 25 November 2023. This time in De Duif. A top venue in Amsterdam, with a large wooden dance floor and great ambiance. We hope to meet you there!
