ABOUT THE COURSES:

ADVANCED SEMINAR:

Crowded Dance Floor: We will explore the unlimited choices of movements and techniques in small spaces.
Musicality & Dynamics: We will learn how to smoothly navigate between rhythmic and melodic phrases in the Vals rhythm.
Tango Waltz: Going beyond respecting the tempo and the phrasing, we have to be in harmony with what we hear (soft, intense, creative…) and let the music influence the quality of our movements while maintaining the flow.
Possible to take all the advanced courses as a package or to register to chosen courses individually.

INTERMEDIATE SEMINAR:

Giros in close embrace: Simple & clear synchronisation of the steps (male and/with female) in the difference of rhytm used for the harmony while turning.
Possible to take all the intermediate courses as a package or to register to chosen courses individually.

BEGINNERS SEMINAR:

Registration to the beginners course is a package. Not possible to register to separate classes.
