Description

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.

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

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.

I think Tristan and Heidi are very good at teaching. I truly love the positive energy they create every time I go to dance, I am always excited to go to the salsa class ! They really are attentive to our needs, they smile a lot and teach very well, breaking down the movements so that we can learn efficiently. Other than that, I also believe that they are wonderful people with a kind soul, which makes the overall learning experience very pleasant. I hope that they teach salsa until level 6 ^^.

Tristan und Heidi sind ein tolles Team. Sie haben jede (auch noch so kleine) Frage beantwortet und waren immer gut drauf. Sie haben uns auch immer wieder ermutigt in die Bananenreiferei zu gehen, was zu tollen Abenden geführt hat.

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