This course will take place in Alumni-Pavillon (same location as Social 5 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.

What you are going to learn

With Slowfox, you are going to learn the last missing Standard dance. Additionally, we will introduce new figures for English Waltz, Quickstep, Samba, Cha Cha, Rumba and Paso Doble.
