After the official TQ-Syllabus has been completed, all paths are open: The addition of new figures, the deepening of technical knowledge, the improvement of dance quality, or even the introduction of additional dance styles. Together with you we will build an appealing program to get more familiar to the fascinating world of ballroom dancing.

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

With Paso Doble, you are going to learn the last missing Latin dance. Additionally, we will introduce new figures for English Waltz, Quickstep, Samba, Cha Cha, and Rumba.
