Never danced with a partner before? Learn the basics of ballroom dancing in 10 lessons! After the course, you will be able to ask a partner to dance and you can deepen your knowledge about the different styles of partner dancing.
Ballroom dancing consists of 10 dances, divided into 5 Latin-American and 5 Ballroom dances. The classical dance styles, traditionally performed at formal galas, have evolved into loose social dances, as well as serious competition form. Hence, ballroom dancing is performed all over the world at big competitions and social dance evenings.
What will you be doing?
You will learn the basics of some of the ballroom dances during this course in a small group. You will learn the basic figures that make up the dances and the techniques to perform them properly.
Leading and following
In this course, you will learn both dance roles: leading and following. This way, you can decide which you prefer, or you can alternate each time you dance. Even if you already have ballroom dance experience in one role, this course can be a fun challenge to learn the other side.
The course is organised in cooperation with Student Dance Association
AmsterDance. Got the hang of it? After this course, you can continue with follow-up classes in ballroom dancing or other dance styles.
“The teacher was very comprehensible, the things we learned very diverse and the fact that we learned both roles helped me better understand the position of both of them.”
