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 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!

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.

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 :)
