This year, we have not 2 but 3 whopping evening parties filled with live music. In the morning you have time to sleep, while in the afternoon there are opportunities for dancing as well as exploring our wonderful medieval city.

Saturday afternoon

A GHX tradition is our group photo in a nod to the iconic Harlem stairs photo. Afterwards, we have our outside J&J prelims in which everyone can participate. No need to sign up. After some regular social dancing, you have the choice between several pubs to enjoy a Belgian beer while dancing the afternoon away to live jazzy tunes.

Sunday afternoon

Once awake, join us in the park for a picnic potluck brunch. You bring the food, we bring live music. Afterwards, you have the choice to stay for an outside dance or explore our wonderful historic city. We will provide you with all the needed info and several options for an adventurous afternoon.

Pre- & afterparties*

* not organised by the GHX, but still pretty darn awesome!

We can't confirm anything yet, but we have good hopes you can enjoy some warm-up dances to live music on both Wednesday 8/04 and Thursday 9/04. And for those staying late, you might be able to enjoy a true Monday 13/04 Blues in a hot and steamy Juke Joint...

More info soon!
