Words are not really strong enough to explain what actually is an visual art.
Some of you have seen the dances in shows like "Strictly come dancing". Don't get overwelmed, there the amateurs dance with a professional and the showdances are a result of very intensive training (8 -10h a day for at least 3 months before the first show). But very often the character of the dance is very clear. For the moment just type: ballroom dancing in youtube and you will find plenty of examples.
We only wish to give you some brief explanation, there is no complete definition.
Slow Waltz, Tango, Slowfoxtrot, Viennese Waltz, Quickstep
Theses 5 dances are part of the international modern ballroom dancing programme. 5 dances that are danced in a stable closed hold. Harmony is created by perfect synchronisation and coordination of the two bodies.
Each dance has its own characteristics
For dancers with experience: Please check the list of our classes, you are welcome to all of our intermediate and advanced classes for a try-out.
The language is basically in English but we do adapt to the dancers in NL, D, F where necessary.
Maybe I start with a description of one my dancers assisting an Argentine Tango show, she said:
"They looked so intimate that I was feeling like almost disturbing them"
This is what Argentine Tango is about.The couple is introvert, completely focused on each other in order to create a perfect improvisation together. It is the strongest form of non-verbal communication. A real journey to take together.
Please follow this link to have more information about the different styles:
Besides there are actually three dances:
Argentine Tango Waltz
and the Milonga
Newcomers Monday 20h
Beginners with little experience Tuesday 21h
The shortest and may be most self explaining definition might be:
"Salsa is the swing of the Latinamericans"
A social dance originated in Cuba, now popular in the whole world.
Just a have look: It is party time
Thursdays at 21h
In Swing dancing, there are a lot of very different styles:
and so many more; it is as diverse as the music.
With the modern popmusic a single 4-count version called Disco-Swing became very popular. It suits all modern popsongs in 4 counts and it is characterized by lots of wrapping figures, turns and change places including wraps, table tops and diving movements...
The other very popular style is Hustle, also very suitable for all kinds of modern popmusic.
