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!

Reviews the teachers got for other courses
03. June 2024, 18:51 Ballroom Training - Basic with Daniel SparberRoom: Hönggerberg, ASVZ Arena 3
Daniel hat von den Füssen bis zu den Hüften erklärt, was eigentlich passiert, wenn man sauber Rumba und Cha Cha Cha tanzt. Das war für mich eine sehr gute Wiederholung. Ich würde so einen Kurs für Jive oder Samba jederzeit auch besuchen.

Super Kurs, stufengerechte Inhalte (Figuren), Tristan und Heidi haben das super gemacht und Hilfestellung geboten, wo sie nötig war.

Daniel explained the Rumba and Cha Cha technique from the bottom up. Well-structured, easy to follow, lots of tips and information to take home and practice in front of a mirror for hours.

Daniel explained the focus of this lesson very nicely and gradually. Kicks and flicks are definitely a great addition to the Jive repertoire, loved it!

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.
