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

You are going to learn four classic dances with which you can shine on every dance floor. These dances are the elegant English Waltz, the vibrant Cha Cha, the modern Disco Fox and the upbeat Jive.
