Spouse Community update
Tak for sidst!
Last Friday was one of the biggest events hosted by Spouse Community; we had our first TGIF event where more than 50 of us bonded over fresh brews of øl. We loved seeing our members and their partners, along with new friendly faces – some who had found us on Facebook and some who we met at the Aarhus City Welcome! A special shout out to Mig & Ølsnedkeren for the lovely space and special drink discounts for our members.
Body Language Workshop series!
We are excited to launch our very first workshop series led by our very own Spouse Community member, Juliana Appel, an experienced actress and teacher of Theatre and Body Expression. This eight-week workshop, which runs every Tuesday, 13.00-15.00 from October 24-December 12 will help you to improve your non-verbal communication skills and excel at expressing yourself through your body in your day-to-day life!

Become a member
We’d love you to join us! Spouse Community Aarhus is a community of enthusiastic international spouses and accompanying partners from all over the world that have settled in Aarhus and made this city our home. All spouses can become a member of Spouse Community Aarhus, whether you or your partner are internationals or Danes. We are lucky enough to have members of many ages and nationalities, both men and women, and some working or volunteering in Aarhus.
We are a non-profit volunteer-based organisation and our nominal membership fee of 100kr per year (that’s about the price of two coffees!) goes directly back into putting on our events - so the more members we have, the more awesome events!
As a member you’ll also receive invitations to all our Spouse Community Aarhus events which are free to members (or in the instance there is an entry fee or ticket needed, we negotiate the best price possible for our members), and access to our members-only Facebook forum which is a place to connect with members, ask questions and seek advice, and share events and articles. Non-members are also welcome to attend our events, however we usually ask for a 50kr fee per event - so with membership only 100kr per year, it’s worth signing up.

Spouse Community is run by spouses, for spouses; so if you have a passion or event idea you’d like to share with the community - we’d love to hear from you! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Improve your body language skills and learn to successfully express yourself through your body! Expressing yourself appropriately, by using your whole body, is essential for good communication; our non-verbal actions, like our stance and gaze, can often convey a different meaning to our words, stopping us from communicating an idea or message effectively.
This eight-part Body Language Workshop will explore and improve your body language and non-verbal skills, allowing you to effectively express yourself through your body! The workshop will be led by Juliana Appel, theatre actress and director, and member of Spouse Community Aarhus, with over 16 years’ experience as a teacher of Theatre and Body Expression. More information and sign-up here.
