Is the event suitable for beginners or advanced dancers?

Do I need to attend all classes? I'm unsure if i can manage this intensity.

Although all classes build on each other, it is not mandatory to follow them all. If you need your me-time or feel you cannot take more at the moment, you can step out any time, visit our social dancing room, relax on the terrace, have a walk, retreat to your room. When you wish to return after a break, please be aware and respect the teachers decision if and when entering the group again is appropriate.

In case you feel emotionally, mentally or physically overwhelmed, consider talking to one of our care-takers. We will present/name them at the beginning of the event.

I feel emotionally, mentally, physically overwhelmed. What can i do?

Movement & bodywork, especially in an intense setting, can trigger emotions in anyone also in unexpected moments. That's why we will have care-takers watching out for you and that you can always address and talk to when needed. They will be presented/named clearly at the beginning of each event.

Also you are always free to drop out of the class/group and take time for yourself. Just inform the teacher or one of the care-takers and have your break.

When you wish to return afterwards, please be aware and respect the teachers decision if and when entering the group again is appropriate.
