Ballroom Social Dancing (ages 13 and above + parents/staff)
Social Dancing, also known as Ballroom Dancing is a sport with regular training, competitions, championships, and social activity. It stems from the traditional social events of tea dances and evening balls in the late 19th and 20th centuries, and it is still an important part of European culture.
There are three groups of social dances: the “Modern” dances (English) Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Slowfox, and Quickstep; the “Latin” dances Cha-Cha-Cha, Samba, Rumba, Pasodoble, and Jive; and the so-called “Party Dances” of which the most popular is the Discofox.
The aim of this course is to teach students the basic steps of the most popular social dances in order for them to feel at home on any dance floor. Students will gain knowledge and confidence to take part in social dance events and enjoy the incredible feeling of being part of a dancing crowd at an evening ball or a dance party.
Ballroom dancing contributes to muscle toning by forcing the dancers to resist their partners’ body strength. It is a great low-impact activity that can promote a fit lifestyle while also decreasing the chances of an exercise-related injury.
Classes are conducted by a qualified Dancesport Trainer who is certified by the German Olympic Sports Federation. The Trainer is also a qualified Alexander Technique teacher and has received the Franklin-Method® training.
