Come sing or dance with us!
There is room for as many as 60 voices in the choir and several dances within the chorus. The singers we distinguish between low basses, high basses, low tenors and high tenors and as well as with the dances we don't make a distinction in level, everyone is welcome. The chorus rehearses every Wednesday from 19.30 to 22.00, except for two Wednesdays around Christmas and New Year's Day, the Wednesday after the annual theater show and the months of July and August. In addition to the weekly chorus rehearsal on Wednesday evening, you are also expected to practice at home. That doesn't have to take a lot of time, just regular, brief practice sessions to keep your memory fresh and to grow your confidence in remembering the song programme or the choreography. Once every season the choir performs together with the dancers a large theater show. We also do smaller gigs during the year to boost our visibility and share our talent with the local community.
Your first visit
We understand that your first visit could be a little scary. Don't worry, we don't bite and always like to greet new members and ensure that you feel like a part of our dance group. You do not have to audition for the dance group. On a first visit, new members are linked to an experienced member who will show you around and answer any questions you might have. Someone from the board will help you with the business side of the registration. Are you still wondering whether you'd enjoy it, or if dancing in a chorus is something for you? Whether we are nice people? (of course we are!) Whether the choreographer will inspire you? Simply contact us with any questions you might have and maybe we can convince you to come along and see for yourself!
meeting new people
Have you just moved to Amsterdam and want to get to know people? Do you want to extend your circle of friends? Are you looking for a fun social hobby? In addition to weekly rehearsals, other activities are regularly organized. You can do that with your own group or with other people with the same interests. Think of a dinner, grab a movie, visit a concert or step into the vibrant nightlife of Amsterdam.
