About the Beginner Course

SDV AmsterDance organizes weekly ballroom dance classes on Wednesday evening in the University Sport Centre Universum (USC Universum). The takes a half year to complete and is followed by a dancing exam for which you will receive a dancing diploma of level “Bronze”.

During this course you will learn 7 dances: Slow Waltz, Tango, Quickstep, Cha-cha-cha, Rumba, Jive and Salsa. You learn the basic figures that the dance consists of and learn the basic techniques that make the movements in a dance couples fluent and pleasant. We will pay attention to principles of leading and following, with which you and your dance partner communicate and make every dance a unique experience together.
During the lessons you will change partners regularly to put leading and following into practice. It is therefore not necessary to enrol with a partner of your own.

Enrolling per quarter

Most courses at the USC take a quarter. For this reason, AmsterDance also offers the opportunity to enrol for a quarter. NOTE: if you decide to follow both quarters, this is more expensive than enrolling for the entire course at once.

The course continues in the second quarter, that is, quarter 2 or quarter 4, with the regular course programme. This means that it is not possible to join the course halfway through. The registration per quarter is solely meant for those that want to follow only the first part of the course, or are not sure yet whether they want to follow the entire course.

Quarter prices
€42,50 for student members (€85,- complete course)
€47,50 for students (€95,- complete course)
€95,- for non-students (€190,- complete course)
