It consists of two continuous classes (one and a half hours each) in which the purpose is to improve the quality of your dance regardless of the partner, since the focus will be on each person. It will be 3 intensive hours in which the teachers can dedicate enough time to each student to evolve their dance and make personalized corrections. You will have the opportunity to ask and get all the doubts about your dance, the techniques, the follow-up and the lead. It is about giving the student what the student needs, the closest thing to a private class but shared with other people.
All levels. 15 couples max
