Our Levels

This is our most basic level in which you learn the fundamentals of Latin partner dancing. This is more than just doing “the steps” as we emphasize on posture, arm movements and lead & follow techniques. It’s best to start this class from the beginning, so check above when and where the next beginner courses start. If you want to join once the course already started it’s best to give us a call.

In our second level we go further in the lead & follow techniques, you’ll learn new basic turns and more footwork. This is not the right level if you don’t know your basics yet, even if you are talented or have been on a vacation to a latin country and danced a lot with the locals
It’s best to start this class from the beginning, so check above when and where the next Improvers courses start.

Everything you have learned in the basic courses is now combined into longer and more complicated turn patterns. There will also be more emphasis on styling, especially for the ladies.

In our Semi Advanced level, you are expected to have a good overall lead & follow technique, know your basic turns and are comfortable on the dance floor. We will also start with Spin Techniques.

The difference between our Semi Advanced and Advanced is mostly the level of the participants, as the turn patterns are not necessarily more complicated. Ladies, however, MUST know how to spin!

When can I start dancing?

Unless you have prior salsa experience we recommend to start from the beginning with our Salsa Beginners or Bachata 1 courses. For alther levels you can jump in at any time as these are ongoing classes

Can I take my class credits to the next level?

As long as they are within the time limit you can use your credits for any class in our regular schedule, regardless the level or type of class

Do I need to bring a partner?

You don’t need to register with a (dance) partner. We have lots of people in our classes who joined without partner. We always try to get even numbers in class.

Do I need special clothing?

No, just make sure your clothes are comfortable and clean. Bringing a change of shirt might be a good idea. For ladies in Intermediate classes or higher we recommend to invest in dance shoes.

I just purchased a membership / credits, can I just show up in class?

No, after purchasing your package you still have to select which classes you will actually attend. This way we can make sure we have a dance partner for you.

I am going on vacation, can I suspend my membership?

Yes, you can suspend a membership if you inform us on time. It can’t be done retroactively. A 12-months membership can be suspended for one month, a 6-month membership for 2 weeks and a 3-month membership for a week.

    5 star review  Every week I'm looking forward to the next class and what you'll learn is pretty much unpredictable.. explanations are super detailed which I find very helpful. It makes you feel confident about what you've learned and will learn. With confidence and a big smile on my face is how I leave the room at the end of a class. So yeah, highly recommended!
