Learn to dance with Oscar & Joke in Brussels
Interested in learning how to dance salsa?
You came to the right place!
We teach salsa classes in Brussels twice a week for all levels, ranging from complete beginners to advanced enthousiasts.
We teach authentic New York style, or "on 2" style, that follows the rhythm of the conga. You will first learn to dance on the music before we start counting :)
Together we have about 30 years of experience in teaching this dance, and we both not only have a great passion for salsa but also for teaching and making sure people have a good time.
We teach in a very social and relaxed way without losing an eye on good technique and a focus on the follower's role as well as the lead one.
Hope to see you soon!
Joke & Oscar
So. You've decided to give it a try? Great!
We teach twice a week in series of 10 weeks 3 times a year. We teach mainly in English, but also speak Spanish, Dutch and French.
We have 3 different levels of classes: in the beginners we start from 0 and teach you the basic foundations of the dance. In intermediate 1 you'll learn variations on those basic figures. The thematic classes for the intermediate 2 and advanced level will offer you themes to train your musicality, body movement, shines and more challenging partnerwork.
In the open footwork class or "shines" class you will learn steps and moves that you perform solo to add a little more spice to your dancing! We offer this class for free for all levels since they are so important to us; shines make you shine in your own unique way!
