Summer break doesn’t mean you cannot dance!

BA 1.1 Balboa Beginners

  • pure bal/bal swing (0-3 months of balboa dance experience)
  • course will cover: basic balboa steps, basic technique of lead&follow, basic footwork and simple basic variations

Dance party

What is a swing dance without the social aspect? Nothing.
As we all try to teach you the social dance, the best way to get better is to train – and you are fortunate – the training in this dance is actually the party itself!
So do not hesitate and come to have a dance with us, with others from your class or strangers too, it is all about fun anyway :).

Jazz Vocab Open class

– Jazz Vocab Open class is a weekly class of solo jazz dance aiming at those who want to enlarge their solo jazz vocabulary. Every week we will learn completely different moves, the classes material is therefore not related. That means you don’t need to register in advance or come every week, it can be your spontaneous Friday evening program who turns smoothly into our Practicas where you can practice other dance material gained throughout the week.
– The class is an open level – good for beginners and advance dancers too. There will always be a list of moves on the FB event for you to choose if that’s the moves you want to learn/practice.
– Great class to make up for your missed regular prepaid classes.

P.S. If you want to dig deeper into choreographies, technique, practicing of previously learned material, we also have a Solo jazz REGULAR class on Thursdays (7.20pm)

Swing Basics Open class

Lekce open class is a special one.
In our regular classes, where you need to register, we go in a slow pace, explain the details of the couple dancing and the classes material follows what has been taught the week before. We also choose one of the styles only for the 9 weeks.
In these Open classes, the approach is different, we don’t want to talk details to you, we do different styles of swing to show you what it all contains so you can see if you’d like to stick to it or if it is not your cup of tea.
SO INTO THIS CLASS YOU CAN JUST DROP IN, TRY IT, PAY and come back next time or sing up for our regular classes (LH1.1,LH1.2 or if you are very talented then even LH1.3).
