Since 2013, Club Guy & Roni takes in a new dance group every year under the name of Club Guy & Roni's Poetic Disasters Club. This is a platform for young dancers who are about to graduate or who have just graduated. With this project, Club Guy & Roni wants to create a platform for young dancers, so they can get acquainted with the dance world.
In 2011 Club Guy & Roni initiated the 'Duizend Dansjes Festival', to raise money for the UMCG Cancer Research Fund in Groningen. Eventually, €15.140,- were raised for the Fund.
Move it! is a participation project from 2011 in which Club Guy & Roni and the Noord Nederlands Orkest teach a group of youths a choreography based on orchestral work.
Every year Club Guy & Roni organizes the Club Guy & Roni Weekend Break Festival, a festival full of dance, theatre, live music, film and art. Club Guy & Roni seek contact with young, local talents for the production of this festival. The first edition was in 2013 in the Grand Theatre in Groningen.
