PhD Dance Committee

Who we are and what we do

We are a team of enthusiastic PhD students who love to dance!

Our aim is to organize various dance events, different styles for PhD students of Maastricht University at least once a month. Workshops are very easy going, fun and good for PhDs who want to improve skills or learn something new. Also it is a great opportunity to meet new people and mingle as our events a often offer drinks and themed snacks afterwards for a relaxing time. In some events, the party keeps going!


PhDs in events:

Usually, we have around 15 to 25 PhDs joining the events, which for this kind of activity is quite enough (space or teacher limitations). In case that an after-party is included in the event, usually more PhDs and friends join later.
