Welcome to D.S.V. 4 happy feet


A warm welcome at the website of D.S.V. 4 happy feet, the student ballroom- and salsa dancing association of the University of Twente!


Founded in 1994, 4 happy feet has grown to be the largest cultural association on campus. We offer both ballroom- and salsa dancing classes at various different levels. The lesson schedule is provided over here. Every other week, members have the possibility to practice their skills and to socialize at social dance evenings. Moreover, 4 happy feet organizes a broad range of other events, like a teammatch, a Christmas ball and all kind of fun parties and activities. Each year, you can show your new skills to your friends and family and earn a diploma at the annual dancing exam.

The offer of the association suits dancers of all different degrees of ambition. Not only social, but also competitive dancers will find their desires satisfied. On a regular basis, groups of 4 happy feeters travel down to competitions of different levels all over the country. Moreover, 4 happy feet naturally competes in both Dutch and European student tournaments. These tournaments are great experiences and accessible to dancers of all different levels. More information about competitions is available over here.

Apart from dancing education and fun activities, 4 happy feet also offers dancing or gala workshops for other associations of the University of Twente. These workshops are given by the members of our Instruction Committee. Click here for more information.
