Classes:

For every level there will be 4 classes of 60 minutes each, either two classes on Saturday and two on Sunday, or 3 on Saturday and one on Sunday. Every track will have a double class with one teacher couple and a/two single classe/s with the one or two other couple/s.

Since we want to give you the best possible learning experience with a good dose of teachers‘ attention for everybody, there will be a range of 8 up to maximum 15 couples per track.

Tasters

We will have most probably 4 tasters on Friday evening (you can choose maximum 2) and 4 on Saturday evening (you can choose maximum 2).  All tasters will last 60 minutes each. We offer 2 additional talks, a good chance to sit down and get some food for your brain.

The tasters are designed for the levels mentioned and you can come without a partner. If you find a taster class full already, please choose another one. We might have a lead or follow surplus, but we will rotate a lot to cope with it.
