An impression of the AmsterDance Classes
AmsterDance dance classes

SDV AmsterDance offers ballroom dance classes every Wednesday evening. Besides the weekly courses we have regular in-depth workshops and introductory lessons to various other partner dance styles, such as social latin and swing dances.

You don’t need a partner to enrol for the AmsterDance courses. During the classes you will change partners regularly to put leading and following into practice.

Corona: Because of corona, we will ask people who register alone to choose a fixed partner at the start of the course. There will be a moment to choose a partner in the first class.

Beginner Course

The Beginner Course takes place twice per year: in September and in February. In a half year time you will learn the basics of seven dances. At the end of the course you are able to ask a partner for a dance at a party and further develop yourself in the world of partner dances. At the end of the course you can participate in the dancing exam for which you will receive the first level of ballroom dancing called “Bronze”.

You do not need to be a member of AmsterDance to follow the Beginner Course.
