This course will take place in Alumni-Pavillon (same location as Social 1 by Heidi & Daniel), except for the lesson on June 5th - it will take place in CAB F21 (StuZ). 

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.

You are going to learn two new dances: Rumba and English Tango. Additionally, new figures for all four dances from Social 1 (Discofox, Cha Cha, Jive & English Waltz) will be introduced.

Thore and Marina are great teachers! It's easy to follow their explanations; they have found a good balance between dry runs and dancing to music, all while providing just the right amount of feedback. They're also approachable and fun. I would definitely join one of their courses again.

Nice course for begineers, the progression is a bit fast, but for sure is not boring. I would say a proper introduction to dancing.
