Learn to dance with Oscar & Joke in Brussels

 

About us

Hi there!

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.

Which style?

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 :)

Why us? 

Together we have more than 20 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

 

group classes

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 4 different levels of classes: in the beginners we start from 0 and teach you the basic foundations of the dance. In the advanced beginners class you'll learn variations on those basic figures. In the intermediate 1 class we continue building on your repertoire with well known figures. During the intermediate 2 class we'll build on the gained knowledge with more complex figures as well as working with a higher tempo. For more advanced students we organize workshops on a regular basis 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! So this is a weekly extra on top of your regular class.
