Tim und Irina erklären die Schritte und Technik verständlich, sie sind sehr hilfsbereit und geben gutes Feedback. Ich hatte viel Spass bei ihnen im Kurs!

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!

The teacher were highly technically skilled and explained the new figures very well. In comparison to other instructors, they focused more on the technique and less on introducing figures. I enjoyed the course a lot.

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 :)
Reviews the teachers got for other courses

Thore and Vitaliya were amazing teachers! Their classes are great fun, and they're really good at breaking down and explaining new steps they introduce in each class. So glad I signed up!

Sehr cooler Kurs, ich fand die Beiden leitenden Personen sehr Kompetent und eingespielt. Sie haben einem immer weitergeholfen und haben die Schritte sehr ausführlich erklärt. Was ich ebenfalls sehr toll fand, ist, dass sie bereits etwas auf die Form und Technik eingegangen sind und nicht nur gezeigt haben in welcher Reihenfolge man die Schritte machen muss.

I really enjoyed the course with Thilo and Vita. It was a nice mix of technique and figures and Thilo & Vita were very encouraging teachers. I can only recommend!
