COVID-19 Dance Protocol
Due to the current situation around Corona, we must observe a number of rules, both for the Open Classes and the dance lessons:
Costs salsa classes
Courses consist of a series of lessons of 60 minutes for which the payment is settled prior to the start of the course. The cost of the lesson packages are:
- €110 per person for 10 classes on 1 fixed moment in the week (€11 per person per class)
- €160 per person for 20 classes on 2 fixed moments in the week (€8 per person per class)
These prices exclude any possible student discount*.
In consultation with us, a single lesson is also possible for €13 per person per class.
* Student discount 10% for full courses upon presentation of valid proof of registration from an educational institution for the current academic year.
If you are a beginner it is recommended to start at the beginning of a course. In order to guarantee your spot, it is advised to register prior to the start of the course as we have limited spots due to COVID-19. You can sent an email or app to receive a payment request. Or you can register after first lesson of the course, during the Open Days, where (cash) payments take place at the venue.
Structure classes & dance styles
Each lesson starts with a relaxed and rhythmic warming up in which you get to know different (Afro) Cuban rhythms like Son, Rumba, Pilon, Chachacha, etc. Then you learn in pairs to apply the basic figures and rhythms in the dance. Thereby the pleasure in dancing is the most important. You do not have to bring a partner! At the beginners class, you will learn the basic steps and rhythms of the Cuban salsa. In the advanced class, you get to know more difficult rhythms, dance steps and elaborate figures on faster music. Improvisation, creativity and smoother exercise play a major role during these lessons. You also learn the 'Rueda de Casino' (dancing in a circle), where you change partners after each figure and that gives you a lot of dancing fun!
Students who are unexpectedly unable to attend a lesson, for example due to illness, must cancel no later than 24 hours in advance. Only then do we offer the opportunity, in consultation with us and with sufficient availability of dance partners, to make up for missed lessons during the current lesson block.
