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.

Thore and Marina are great teachers! It's easy to follow their explanations; they have found a good balance between dry runs and dancing to music, all while providing just the right amount of feedback. They're also approachable and fun. I would definitely join one of their courses again.

Der Kurs Ceilidh ist perfekt wenn man in eine ganz andere Tanzart reinschnuppern möchte. Man bekommt einen Überblick, dass es verschiedene Tänze gibt und tanzt auch verschiedene am gleichen Abend.

Der Kurs ist wunderbar geeignet für Einsteiger, um gewisse Grundschritte und einfache Figuren zu lernen. In einer kurzen Zeit werden die Grundlagen auf eine gute Art beigebracht und direkt (nach einer kurzen Einführung) auch im Tanz mit einem Partner geübt.

Absolute must for someone who, like me, has always been a little fascinated by dancing but was too shy to try it in front of other, more skilled people. The level is generally about the same for all participants, so I felt it was easier to make mistakes without feeling ashamed, and the teachers were really nice, and offered wonderfully clear explanations both in general to everyone, and privately on request. Great course, and the price is unbeatable!
