You can take this class, no matter if you’re a social dancer/ competitor. The connection techniques will work the same.

Do I need a Partner?

It’s recommended but not necessary. We divide up the leaders and followers’ parts, so that you can still learn and practice by yourself.

What happens if I have questions?

There are comment sections underneath each lesson. The best way is to leave your questions right when you have them. This way we can answer them directly and other students can also benefit from the answers.

Yes. Yes. Yes, and a million trillion other YESes! If you take private lessons, you’ll know that there is never enough time to cover everything.
