About the Beginner Course

AmsterDance organizes weekly ballroom dance classes on Wednesday and Sunday evening in the University Sport Centre Universum (USC Universum) and Sportcentrum VU. The course lasts 6 months and consists of 19 classes. The course is completed with 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. During the course, you are taught the basic figures of each dance and learn the techniques to dance the figures correctly. We will pay attention to the principles of leading and following, with which you and your partner learn how to dance together.

You can join with a partner or individually. Depending on the possibilities with corona, we will switch partners to practise leading and following and to get to know each other.
