USA 2024

General Information

  • All group classes to be booked and paid in advance with our respective hosts. The number of participants will be limited. Last minute spots may be open, but please do not count on it.
  • All prices are per person.
  • All group classes can be booked with a partner or solo.
  • We use role-changing as a means to understanding this wonderful dance better – in particular if you register solo. If you register with a partner, you are of course free to stick to the traditional roles, but we always recommend to try it. Dancing both roles is not only great fun, but will also make you more independent as a dancer. 
  • As we focus on musicality, communication and improvisation, our classes are suited for all levels. Some classes however have specific requirements. You will find them in the class description.
