The requirements weren’t quite easy. First there was a screening. Those who passed it received the task to perform with some more requirements:
We’ve tracked all the respones of the audience during five Tuesdays. We’ve looked at the indirect responses as well. We even saved all the responses we’ve received and read them all… You’d think that this would make it a lot easier… (Read our previous post for the points of interest)
Dj Roggy stood out because of his unique, lovely and danceable salsa tracks. Dj Virgil El Gigante’s strength was the variation of multiple sub styles. Dj Kelly received compliments because of her great ratio between good danceable salsa and bachata. Dj El Pequeno loco kept up with a good pace during his set. At last but definitely not least: dj Jimmy, that has kept the dancefloor full of people from beginning till the end, last Tuesday.
We noticed that all the deejays have given a musically enrichment to the dancers and we, as an organisation, can confirm that all the deejays have performed perfectly according to our requirements.
Okay, we’ll cut it here. So, who’s the winner?
The most positive respones are for…
Dj Virgil El Gigante!

Because I’m curious as always, I’ve taken a look at it for you guys. First, it is something for you, so keep reading on and decide if it is something for you.
After an extensive conversation with Steffie, the organiser, I’ve got the feeling of a carefree night going out. Wether it is because it sounded like music to my ears, because I need a vacation, or because of her answers: “We’ll take care of that”, “We’ll guide you through the night”, “You don’t have to worry about anything”, “Everything is included, you don’t even have to take your wallet with you”…
A huge difference with current parties is a carefree and chic night out. “As if you’re being pampered and treated as a guest on a nice wedding”, is what some of our visitors said last year. So All Inclusive in Dutch means: unlimited snacks, drinks, use of facilities and at last but not least, you will be entertained. It is possible to enjoy special acts next to dancing.
The program starts directly from the beginning of the night, at 22:00 hours. Not everything will be told in this post, so there will be some surprises at the event. We know that the couple Luis & Andrea are on the dancefloor. “This is what caught the attention of international visitors”, Steffie continued, “Tickets have been sold to Bachata lovers from Germany, England and Belgium”.
So it isn’t only for students, that’s for sure. But for who is it then? “The most important thing is that you love Bachata, an exclusive chic setting and the lovely December feeling”.

Tuesday, 31st of October, it is Halloween. Some people love it, while others hate it. Do you love it? You’d love to combine it with your passion for dance!
The Mexican restaurant Amigo, located above Striktly Social, is about Halloween that night. Besides getting your make up and the possibility to win a dinner for two, there will be a free Bloody or Spooky cocktail for Striktly visitors!
Make the most out of your Halloween: start with scary super “all you can eat” tapas and come back downstairs afterwards to dance! More info about the Bloody & Spooky event with Salsa, Bachata and Kizomba? Click here!
The idea is just one week old and the response is great. A first selection has been made and you can experience the next deejays:
All deejays get the same assignment; perform the Striktly Salsa & Bachata way: 3 salsa and 3 bachata songs. There is room for creativity within this assignment and that’s where the difference can or will be made. The difference is subjective but will be evaluate on:
