What we teach

First year dances (Beginners):
Mambo, Cha-cha, Disco-Swing, Quickstep, English Waltz, Viennese Waltz, Tango, Jive

Important principles that we teach:

  • The differences between the standard and latin-american dances
  • Recognizing the dances, knowing their basic rhythm, and a rough idea of the characteristics of the dances
    (what do we wish to express, what is the dance about)
  • Awareness of the own body and the partner's body in movement
  • Lead and follow basic principles
  • Responsibilities on and around the dancefloor
  • Etiquette for a ball or festive social dance event

Second year (Advanced):
Samba, Salsa, Rumba, Paso Doble, are
added and we study more sophisticated combinations in the other dances
Third year (Medallists):

Basic competive figures and technique If possible we also study Slowfoxtrot

Competitors classes:
Fridays 20:00-21:30  
In this class we wish to give the dancers a deeper understanding and training. The final goal is to achieve a basic competitive level (debutants B) or pre-amateur level at the Bel-AL competitions in a few dances:
Waltz, Tango, Quickstep
Rumba, Cha-cha, Jive
The routines will be adapted to competitive dancing. All technical aspect of the dances as hold, posture, movement, footwork, body actions and partnering skills will be trained.
So these dancers are asked to do at least two classes, their own group and the competitors class. So they can continue to also develop the other dances as Viennese Waltz, Slowfoxtrot, Samba and Paso Doble.
We also recommend them to participate in the technique group to enhance their dancing skills.
For those, who wish to participate in a competition it will be necessary to practise at least once a week on their own.Free practise on Tuesday 17:00-19:00.

Competitive couples will be registered to Danssport Vlanderen (25,- € per couple).
They can also participate in the competitions of the Belgian Amateur League;
Fees for the competitions need to be payed at the venue by the competitors!
Registration is obligatory and you need to pay a fine if you do not show up.
According to the level, the trainers will decide together with couples which competitions are most suitable.
Rising Stars
Newcomer will start again in September 2020
We created this class for younger students (9-12 years) interested in dance sport.
As most of our dancers are already dancing 2-3 years we integrated them to the advanced class; but they still are coached seperatly.
They develop body coodination, posture, coordination with music and coordination with a partner.
Our rising stars are coached by Barbra Weyer
