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!

The teacher were highly technically skilled and explained the new figures very well. In comparison to other instructors, they focused more on the technique and less on introducing figures. I enjoyed the course a lot.

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 :)

Nice course for begineers, the progression is a bit fast, but for sure is not boring. I would say a proper introduction to dancing.
