Do you offer hosting? / How can I offer hosting?

We have a facebook group for the communication between dancers who like to host and dancers who are looking for a place to stay.

When should I arrive in Amsterdam and depart again if I don’t want to miss anything?

There are parties with live music on the evenings from Thursday 24th (20:00) until Monday the 28th of May. The classes take place on Saturday and Sunday.

What is your cancellation policy, can I sell or give away my pass to a fellow dancer?

You can find our cancellation policy, terms and conditions here. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Can I volunteer?

Yes! Events like these are run by volunteers and we can use all the help we can get! If you want to volunteer, please contact us and we will hook you up!

What is the best place to stay?

Our workshop venue and party venues are in the East of Amsterdam and Diemen. Try to find a place around this area so you won’t have to travel far!

Why do I have to send in a video-audition if I want to join the top two levels?

We want to make sure that everyone is in the right level. To ensure this, an audition for the highest levels was the option we chose. At other events, and in previous years at Smokey Feet, there was an audition before classes started. This is very time-consuming, we want to make sure that everyone can dance as much as possible during the weekend so doing the audition process before the event starts will ensure this!

What happens if I end up on the waiting list?

Everybody starts out on the waiting list so your registration is initially put on hold until we can confirm that we can offer you a spot. Once a spot opens up you will receive an email. We hope to send out the first confirmations within a week after registration opens.

Can I register with a partner that already completed the registration process?

No, it’s only possible to register as a couple if you both fill in the name of your partner and register on the same day.

Should I register with a partner?

You don’t have to sign up with a partner, but signing up with a partner increases your chance to leave the waiting list. We do have some spots for single leads and follows in every level.

When can I register?

Registration opens: -Full passes: January 12th at 8pm C.E.T. -Party passes: February 16th at 8pm C.E.T.

Can I get an invoice?

You can find your invoice under Orders in your personal Smokey Feet account after you complete the payment.

What can I do if I’m not happy with my level / Can I switch levels?

If you are doubting about your level please tell your teachers just before or during the first class. After the first class you can ask your teachers if they feel like you should be in a different level. If so they will give you a green card. Come to the registration desk and we will find out if the balance (lead-follower ratio) allows you to attend classes in a different level.

Will there be competitions?

Yes, we will have two competitions: a Social divison and a Couples division. We will open online registration for the competitions a few weeks before the event. If there are spots left you can also register for the competitions at the party on Friday evening.

Who can join the concept classes on Saturday and Sunday?

Everyone with a full pass.

What can I do with my pass for Smokey Feet if I can’t make it?

You can find our cancellation policy, terms and conditions here. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
