Our Levels

`Level 1: Absolute Beginners

Discover the art of partner dancing in our basic level courses. Learn the essential foundations, master lead and follow techniques, and embrace proper dancing etiquette. These courses are designed to progress each week, building upon the elements taught before.

If you’re new to Latin dancing, it’s best to start at the beginning of a new course for a solid start. However, if the courses have already begun, you can join our Beginner Bootcamps on Sundays. These sessions will equip you with the fundamentals and prepare you to jump into an ongoing course.

Don’t miss out on the joy of dance! Join us today and unlock the thrilling world of partner dancing.

Level 2: Improvers

Take your lead and follow techniques to the next level in our exciting second level! Discover a world of new basic turns and expand your footwork repertoire. However, if you’re still working on your basics, this may not be the right level for you, even if you’ve had the chance to dance up a storm in Latin countries.

Unlike our progressive beginner’s courses, the second level is an ongoing adventure. Each class brings something fresh and exciting, building upon the techniques you’ve already learned. To move on to level 3, we typically recommend completing around 20 lessons at this level.

Step up your dance game and seize the opportunity to grow as a dancer.

Level 3: Intermediate

Prepare to level up your dance skills as we blend everything you’ve learned in the introductory courses into dynamic and captivating extended turn patterns. Get ready to embrace complexity and unleash your creativity on the dance floor!

But that’s not all. Our next level also places a special focus on styling, with a particular emphasis on bringing out the inner elegance and grace of our female dancers. You’ll discover exciting techniques to add flair and finesse to your moves, ensuring you shine like never before.

Level 4: Semi Advanced

As a Semi Advanced dancer, you should possess exceptional lead and follow skills, be well-versed in basic turns, and feel confident on the dance floor. Additionally, we will delve into Spin Techniques.

Level 5: Advanced

Our Semi Advanced and Advanced programs differ primarily in the skill level of participants. Although the turn patterns taught are not necessarily more complex, spinning skills are crucial for the ladies.
