Description

Due to changes in the course concept, you may lack knowledge of English tango. Don't worry, we know that and will take it into account.

During the social courses, we will teach you the basics of ballroom dancing. Ballroom dances are partner dances that are mainly popular in Europe and consist of two categories: Standard and Latin.

What you are going to learn

With Viennese Waltz and Quickstep, you are going to learn two new Standard dances. Additionally, we will introduce new figures for English Waltz, Cha Cha, Rumba and Jive.

Requirements for the course

You are expected to know these figures. If you have any questions, please contact anmeldungen@tanzquotient.org.

Tim und Irina erklären die Schritte und Technik verständlich, sie sind sehr hilfsbereit und geben gutes Feedback. Ich hatte viel Spass bei ihnen im Kurs!

I liked how Irina and Tim explained a lot of technique when introducing the figures so that the people who already understood the basics could pay attention to the details already!

The teacher were highly technically skilled and explained the new figures very well. In comparison to other instructors, they focused more on the technique and less on introducing figures. I enjoyed the course a lot.

A steep learning curve from Ballroom 2 to Ballroom 3 through the addition of Quickstep and Viennese Waltz, but with the help of Irina and Tim it was manageable. Their patience and elaborate explanations helped immensly! Looking forward to their Ballroom 4 course :)

Sehr toller Kurs, genau richtig
30. Jan. 2024, 11:53 Ceilidh with Robin WolfRoom: ETH Zentrum, Alumni-Pavillon
Der Kurs Ceilidh ist perfekt wenn man in eine ganz andere Tanzart reinschnuppern möchte. Man bekommt einen Überblick, dass es verschiedene Tänze gibt und tanzt auch verschiedene am gleichen Abend.

Loved it!!! So much fun
23. Nov. 2023, 23:31 Ballroom Crash Course with Matthias Mayer, Johanna Niessing & Robin WolfRoom: Hönggerberg, HXE
Der Kurs ist wunderbar geeignet für Einsteiger, um gewisse Grundschritte und einfache Figuren zu lernen. In einer kurzen Zeit werden die Grundlagen auf eine gute Art beigebracht und direkt (nach einer kurzen Einführung) auch im Tanz mit einem Partner geübt.

Absolute must for someone who, like me, has always been a little fascinated by dancing but was too shy to try it in front of other, more skilled people. The level is generally about the same for all participants, so I felt it was easier to make mistakes without feeling ashamed, and the teachers were really nice, and offered wonderfully clear explanations both in general to everyone, and privately on request. Great course, and the price is unbeatable!
