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 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.

Great teachers! It is the Basics. To make progress and not to forget everything in a week, you have to exercisse at home with the vidoes provided. Or take advantage of the sessions on friday.

I highly recommend this course, beginners and people who had prior experience all seemed to profit and have a good time. The teachers are competent and very friendly.

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

Marina & Thore were great teachers! They're funny, friendly, and super easy to talk to! :-)

In general, I think that this is a good course. It is very basic though - for someone with dance experience (followers especially, but leaders too), it only proceeds very slowly.

If you ever wondered whether to take a dancing course this is definitely the right address. The teachers are very kind and helpful and the learning pace is just right. I had a lot of fun!

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!

Sehr guter Kurs und Lehrpersonen. Gehen indivuell auf die Teilnehmer ein. Passen das Tempo der Gruppe an. Geben viele Freiheiten, was gelernt bzw. repetiert wird.

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 :)
