Dr Bernard and the Swing Cats
Nothing brings people together like dancing, that’s why the night starts with a class on the ALX-Choreo to the fitting song ‘With Thee I Sing’. The one and only choreographer Earanee will teach you the steps so you can join in whenever this song is played during the weekend.
ALX choreo before the party starts.
DR BERNARD AND THE SWING CATS
Dr Bernard and the Swing Cats is an ensemble by doctor (yes, really…) and clarinettist Bernard Berkhout. He has a tidy sum of Dutch jazz awards under his belt (such as the soloist prize of the North Sea Jazz festival and the Edison Grammy Award), as well as a decade of experience playing for dancers. Cherry on top: his sextet comes with a vibraphone player! With his newest ensemble he will kick off the first official night of the festival.
