Levels

LEVEL INFORMATION

In dance there are different levels. Choosing a level for your classes is quite difficult. It is not only about how long you’ve been dancing, or how good you are at the start of this workshop. It’s also about how quickly you learn new stuff, how open you are to trying out new approaches, styles and what the level is of fellow dancers in this workshop.

The best advice we can give you from here is to not rush to get to a higher level.
If you want to become a better dancer, you will learn the most in the correct and not in the highest level.

We truly trust and respect our teacher’s opinions as well as their knowledge in this case and we kindly ask our participants to do the same.
This means that there might be a risk of being put into a lower group or level then you hoped for or even signed up for.
If your partner, significant other or friend ends up in a different level than yourself and you want to be together we will do our best for you to end up in the same group. The principle is that the person in the higher level move down.
During the first class on Saturday all levels will be reviewed by the teachers to make sure everyone is in the right level.

Also there will be some other classes you can choose from. More info will follow.
