Class setup

Since we want to bring as much great classes as possible we combine the best of all worlds:

  • There are 3 classes on both days
  • Saturday there are 3 levels
    • The groups will have relative levels, meaning you will be assigned to a group with other dancers who have a similar experience level. You get one class from all the main teachers.
  • Sunday there are 3 x 3 different classes to pick from.
    • You choose from a variety of styles, for instance blues, fusion, tango, hip hop!

Myriam Meret, Rotterdam

Myriam is originally from France and is a full-time dance teacher and performer living in Rotterdam. Her main styles are House Dance and Funk Styles, that she also combines with some Authentic- jazz and Tap heritage. She will teach a class on isolation and groove movements from hip hop, which will lend very well to use in fusion dance!

Vera Salvisberg, Zurich CH

The lovely Vera will teach a class about body awareness in dance. Vera believes that body awareness is the most important skill for dancers, because it brings joy of movement and freedom to express yourself, contributing to the dance conversation and giving a more direct way of experiencing and understanding your partner’s movement. She is a Franklin method® instructor, which is a method that aims to bring improved movement and a healthier function of the body and mind together, both for dancing and everyday life.
