Five good reasons to join a dance class
  • Get out
  • Put into practice your coordination and memory skills
  • Exercise while having fun
  • Meet new people and expand your circle of friends
  • Discover or rediscover different styles of music

It has been proven, that couples, that are also dance partners have a higher probability of staying together and in better health! And for those who come unaccompanied, there are always partners to dance with.

To prepare for your opening dance on the occasion of your wedding, choose a music that you like and take your appointments early.
Indeed, it takes time to memorize a sequence of steps and figures of a minute and a half to two minutes!
