Beginner Ballroom Classes

 

The measures surrounding the coronavirus are currently being relaxed, and physical partner dancing may just be possible again in a couple of months.

To make sure you can join all the dances straight away, we are organising a 4-lesson online course in which our very own Remy will teach you the basics of the most common ballroom dances! Even if you already know the basics, this class may still be interesting for you to refresh your knowledge or get to know other members better!

If you are still in doubt, the first class is free, so just join and see if you like it! For the free try-out, also make sure let us know by filling in the form.

Schedule

The beginner classes will take place on Mondays from 19:00 until 20:00 on Zoom. There will be four online classes. The first class will start on 15 March, and will be held every week until 5 April.

Technique classes- Ballroom

We offer Technique classes for our members who know the basic steps of ballroom dancing, and want to improve their dance skills. Our own Remy Kabel will teach you the finer aspects of a specific step or technique every week. For these classes you don't need a partner, so everyone can join!

This quarter, the technique classes are open for everyone, although non-members do have to pay a higher fee.

Due to the corona measures, we will offer online during the third quarter of the academix year. 

The classes will take place on Mondays from 20:00 until 21:00 on Zoom. There will be four online technique classes for both Ballroom Standard and Ballroom Latin. 

Ballroom Latin will start at 15 February, and will be held every other week until 29 March.

Ballroom Standard will start at 22 February, and will be held every other week until 5 April.

Practice Hours

Every week during the academic year the association gives members the opportunity to practice their dance skills during practice hour. This is the ideal place to practice new steps, work on technique, and learn from other dancers. Free for members. Non-members pay €2,50, the first time is free.

The weekly dance practices will take place on Saturday from 11:00 until 13:00. Both Argentine tango and ballroom music will be played, on two separate parts of the field. 

There is unlimited space for 26- years old, and space for 4 members of 27+ years old. Please note that people who are older than 27 will have to practice on a separate field, and are not allowed to dance together. Please see the sign up forms for more information.
