Hello again readers,
It's finally time to share my photographs of ALF with you! I have highlighted some of my favorites here and at the bottom you can find the rest of the photos. I was present for the classes and the Friday and Saturday parties. Unfortunately I had to fly back on Sunday afternoon so I missed the last party down in Nyhavna.
The parties were at the same venue Friday and Saturday. Frimurerlogen is an old historical building and that's quite apparent! The name can be translated to "Freemason's lodge" The interior is amazing with a grand entrance, staircase and majestic old school ballroom. The layout of the ballroom seems to be designed for dancing to a band with space for tables under the 2nd level balcony seating. The middle space in front of the band is just perfect for casual dancing. It is honestly one of the most beautiful halls I've danced in.
This weekend my friend Francesca and I had the honor of teaching a blues dance taster for the participants of ALF. We taught a class designed to get the class dancing and enjoying themselves as fast as possible. We only had an hour so we couldn't get into too much technical detail. I also want to thank all of you who came to the class and gave us your energy and enthusiasm! We really enjoyed it.
I liked the fact that there was more to do than just lindy hop. Besides the blues dance class we taught there were a few solo jazz classes by Audun, Charlotte and Ron; a tap dance class by Sharon; a DJ workshop by Petter (from Oslo) and a body awareness workshop by Maartje.
You can read about each of the taster classes under "Teachers and DJs" on the ALF site:
If you want to use one of the pictures for your Facebook then thats fine as long as it's not commercial and please put a link to my web page and don't cut off my logo. If you want a zoomed in version then please let me know and I can make you one with my logo. :)
