All about Classes

Which course is the right one for me?

We offer classes for all levels of dance experience. In our classes overview you can sort them by style and level of experience. The classification with the stars gives you a first orientation and helps that all participating dancers are more or less on the same level.

 

These are our levels:

*****  OPEN LEVEL – movement experience is enough

*****  BEGINNERS – for all without dance experiences

*****  ADVANCED BEGINNERS – for those who just start dancing with prior knowledge

*****  INTERMEDIATE – for dancers with several years dance experience

*****  ADVANCED – for dancers with longstanding training experience and a strong technical understanding

*****  PROFESSIONAL – for professional dancers

Can I just come over or do I have to register before the class?

You don’t have to register for our daily regular classes. Just come whenever you feel like! Our classes are structures so that you can step in every time no matter if you have been the week before or not. Please come 15 minutes before he class starts so that you have enough time to fill in your name to the course list and to change your clothes. If you have any question in the studio our team at the front desk is happy to help you.

Attention:
Exception „Ballett Choreography“
In this course you cannot step in randomely but you have to check the starting point of the project. You can ask the counter team or check the Google calendar.

For what age are the classes?

Basically, all classes are open for all ages. If not, it will be specified in the description. For example our Urban 25+ class is for everybody of 25 years and older.
The kids and teens classes are for specific ages that you can see in the course schedule.

How can I know if a class is cancelled or substituted?

We inform you about short-term modifications on Facebook and in our daily updated Google calendar.

With the Google calendar you can take over the classes in your own calendar. This gives you the opportunity to be informed via push messages about short-term modifications.

Clothing

What shall I wear?

In all classes you should wear something cosy in that you can move easily and you feel comfortable in.

Urban Dance, Hip Hop, House, Dancehall

Urban stands for casual, lose sport clothing and sneakers.
Please make sure your shoes are clean and don’t use shoes you are wearing outside.

Ballet

Ideally you are wearing a ballet tricot and ballet slippers as it is helpful for working on your body posture and your feet.
If you don’t have a tricot or ballet slippers you can also dance in suitable clothes and with socks. Tight clothing is helpful as the teachers can see and correct you better.

Jazz Modern Lyrical

Comfortable clothes in what you can move easily and socks.

Tribal Fusion Belly Dance

We dance barefoot. Chose something comfortable to wear, maybe a belly top if you want or any other tight top so that you can see and correct your movements better.

Further Questions

Celebrate special events

Special events need a special environment and special dance projects need a special surrounding or training atmosphere.
We organize children’s birthday parties as well as specific dance workshops for smaller groups. We also help you to create an own choreography, if it is for a wedding, as a valentine’s present or for entrance examination. Interested? Here you get more information.

Definitions

What is Fusion?

The term “Fusion” you will find at most relating to contemporary dance. Putting it briefly, fusion means that different styles are mixed up in one class. In this way new movements can be created and exciting choreographies are formed. One example is “Tribal Fusion Belly Dance” that blends Tribal Dance with Belly Dance.

What is JML?
JML is the short form for Jazz Modern Lyrical. Sometimes we use that short form to describe the category in wich we see jazz, modern and lyrical dance forms
What is a rotation class?

There is always reasons why a class is not held weekly by the same teacher. Still we want to offer you teachers that are not in Berlin to teach regularly. So we sometines have Slots in our class schedule that is reserved for Master Classes, Special Classes, Workshops often combined with Jams and Parties.

Currently the saturday evening from 17:30h is such a spot.

Master Class / Special Class

A master class or special class is an offer between a normal class and a workshop that doesn’t take place weekly. That’s why you will not find any master class in the general course schedule but under Events & Workshops overview. Master classes are addressed to experienced dancers, so you should be at a intermediate level at least. Furthermore master classes usually contain a certain focus what gives the opportunity to learn and work on skills much more intense than in a regular class. You can take part with your motion*s contract, as well as by buying a single ticket of 12€ or you can use your ticket of 5 or 10.

A special Class is pretty much the same thing.
