Close dancing

It is a bit squashed for all the swinging hips, but that doesn't spoil the fun. International students are flocking to ISOW workshops.

The club for international students has been flooded with new recruits for dance and language classes. ‘Last week we had 100 people in our salsa class, something which has never happened before', says board member Ingrid Flink. ‘On the same day 80 people turned up for our Dutch for Beginners class!'
It is not just international students who find their way to the club, says Flink. Dutch students, PhD researchers and non-students also like the exotic atmosphere in the building on the Generaal Foulkesweg. ‘Since last week 136 new members have joined. It is crazy, but in a good way!'
