In all our classes you will learn how to lead and follow.
You DON’T need a partner to sign up.
LEVEL DURATION IN PARTNERED CLASSES
After each block, each student will get a PERSONAL ADVICE as to which level will suit them next, however this is our general line:
- Level 1 twice so your basics are steady (we never teach the same material, we always handle your basics from different perspectives.)
- Level 1.5 three times as the major vocabulary and concepts get steady in this level
- Level 2 until we advise you to move to level 2.5
LEVEL DURATION IN SOLO CLASSES
It’s up to you how much challenge you want to take.
(We advise, however, to stick with the basics until you can really dance them on music and improvise with them without thinking as that is where the real magic happens.)
PS. If we see you are progressing faster, we will move you to a higher level, as we do want you to progress as fast as possible 🙂
