Description

Update April 2024:

We have started to develop the new choreo, but there is still enough time to catch up. So if you are interested, come to our training and can still join the show. First performances are planned during the fall term.

New Start of the TQ Show Group in March 2024:

After the successful performances of the TQ Show Group with the choreography Time Travellers in 2023, we now start from scratch with a new choreography. So it is the perfect moment to join us. The aim is to rehearse a show choreography that can be performed at TQ events, balls, etc. In the new choreography we want to put a stronger focus on the show aspects, e.g., by conveying a story and by combining (couple) dancing with elements of acting. And all this is planned to be combined with live music for the performances. An exciting project combining multiple forms of art is awaiting you.

Please note that the show group is not a typical half-term course, but the aim is to gather a group of people who are interested in training together on a regular basis over a longer horizon, and to finally perform together. If you are still unsure whether you want to join the show, you are invited to join us for a tryout training (just register normally via the website in that case, so that we know how many people to expect).

Update November 2023:

We have performed the extended edition of our choreography Time Travellers, amongst others, at the TQ Herbstball and at Polyball. The latter was the last planned performance of the choreography and we are currently making plans for the future.

Update May 2023

We have successfully performed our show multiple times and are now taking a break in learning new parts to rejuice ourselves and incorporate new members. Join us now! Check out our Show on YouTube!

Update February 2023

The TQ Show Group has developed a choreography on the topic "Time Travellers" and is preparing for the first performances. But after the show is before the show, so are still invited to join our trainings and to become part of future performances later this year or of future choreographies that we develop. More info in the original announcement below.

Announcement September 2022

Our aim is to rehearse a show choreography that can be performed at TQ events, balls, etc. We will start by training some basic elements of show & formation dancing, including typical figures, synchronicity of the group, orientation in the room, etc. Then, we will move on to creating and practicing a show choreography to a medley-style music whose theme will be chosen according to wishes and ideas from the group. The show choreography will be based on elements from the standard ballroom dances and Latin American dances, and possibly Discofox, so that joining the show group is a great opportunity for improving your skills in these dances.

As always, Chris presents interesting material that fits well to the groups abilities. It’s awesome to have this kind of advanced courses, which (together with the technique trainings on Fridays) create this group of dancers who want to improve together.

Great course. Thank you for all the technique tips, they are worth a lot!
20. Feb. 2024, 20:08 Quickstep Basic Jumping Figures with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
Chris gestaltet seine Kurse und Workshops immer so lehrreich und gleichzeitig so spaßig.
19. Feb. 2024, 11:08 Quickstep Basic Jumping Figures with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
The Quickstep course was super fun, we learned a good amount of figures and had time to practice them. We also learned a bit about the 'character' of the dance.
12. Feb. 2024, 09:02 Cha Cha New Yorker Variations with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
Chris does a very good job at explaining difficult figures/variations by first teaching more simple versions to then make it easier to learn the juicy stuff.
09. Feb. 2024, 10:01 Cha Cha New Yorker Variations with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
I enjoyed this course, we looked as many variations that we’ll be able to use during the open dancing.

Chris is a great teacher & finds the perfect balance between technique that you need, fun figures and challenges!
07. Feb. 2024, 15:59 Polka with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
Very nice introduction to Polka, in particular for everyone who joined the trip to Vienna where we could dance quite a few Polkas.
10. Jan. 2024, 18:08 Polka with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
Chris hat ein grosses Theoriewissen und streut es in guten Maße in seine Kurse ein. Nicht zu viel, nicht zu wenig, gerade genug dass es interessant ist, man nicht nur die Schritte lernt, sondern auch lernt wie sie zusammen spielen sollen, und was sich auf andere Tänze übertragen lässt.
14. Dec. 2023, 12:28 Ballroom Open Level with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
Great and fun course, just the right amount of technique, variations of figures and music to practice.
27. Oct. 2023, 15:04 Ballroom Open Level with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
The dance course strikes the perfect balance between reviewing figures, improving technique and focusing on the variety that ballroom dancing has to offer. I greatly enjoyed every session of the course & look forward to the next course! Chris is an excellent teacher!
27. Oct. 2023, 14:52 Ballroom Open Level with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
This is a fantastic course, I have learned so much, particularly how figures can be combined, when they can be danced, and how to dance them well. I also really enjoyed the explanations of concepts like swing and different energies of the steps within figures. Chris brings so much positive energy and happiness to his classes, which makes it even more enjoyable to learn and improve. There was also lots of individual feedback and input from the class.
