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.

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