Description

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

You are going to learn four classic dances with which you can shine on every dance floor. These dances are the elegant English Waltz, the vibrant Cha Cha, the modern Disco Fox and the upbeat Jive.

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!

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!
