Have a dancer staying at your place!
call out to all dancers in Rotterdam and surroundings
Fusion Dancers from all corners of Holland and Europe will be visiting the coming Shimmy Shake Festival. Because we want to stimulate the exchange between fusion dancers from different parts of the world, we would like to give visitors from outside of Rotterdam the chance to get to know dancers, or dance enthusiasts from Rotterdam a bit better by staying with them during the festival.
Therefore we would like to put together a list of available houses of people living in Rotterdam and surroundings, where others can stay the night or nights. Are you hospitable? Wanna help out?
Is your house / apartment big enough to host one (or more) dancers? Would you like to buddy up with another dancer? Then welcome someone, who is also passionate about fusion dance, to stay at your place and enjoy the Shimmy Shake Festival together. If you offer a dancer a place at your house, you will receive a free ticket to their workshop at the festival. Or if you prefer or if they don't give a workshop, you will get a free ticket to Matinee Mash Up or the Urban Dance Show.
Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details:
* Full name, address, postal code, city, telephone number
* A short personal profile
* A short description of your house
Once listed, we will send the list of all available places to those who need accommodation during the festival, then they will contact you directly for further information.
For more information about the listing, please contact Bjefke Bonnema (email@example.com).
