In terms of dance and their aggregate terms, our teaching method is based on the structure of the different steps at different levels of learning, so that teaching is carried out in a progressive, objective and consistent manner.
In terms of the structure of classes, they have an extremely varied nature with specific activities directly related to the objectives of the class, always looking for the student to learn as much as possible in a relaxed manner, effective and fun.
