Description

About this course

In this training, we revisit the dances from the Ballroom courses focusing on how to dance them more nicely in terms of look, feel, and musicality. The training will help you on your way towards looking like a pro on the dance floor :-). You will learn to dance the known basic figures effortlessly and discover body movements that create the typical character of the dances, which will facilitate learning more complex figures in the future. The training also covers the topic of lead and follow to create a smooth experience within the couple so that both partners can enjoy the dance.

We recommend this course to everyone who has been dancing for up to 1.5 years, i.e. if you are taking Ballroom 1 to 6 at the moment. If you already have more experience, consider checking out our Ballroom Training for Standard or Latin.

Requirements

For attending, we expect you to know the basics of the dances of the evening (see at the top). If you did Ballroom 1, you can safely join for Waltz, Cha Cha, Jive, and Discofox. With Ballroom 2, you can also join for Rumba and Tango. If you did Ballroom 3 or higher you can join for everything.

Important Notes
  • You must have a valid ASVZ membership to participate (note as ETH or UZH student you will automatically have that).
  • Take a lock with you & store all your bags, jackets etc in a locker. No street shoes are permitted in the room (wear dance shoes for example, or socks if you don't have dance shoes (yet)).
  • To enter the building you will have to register for the class and scan the QR code which you will receive after your participation is confirmed.

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.

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!
