Cours Bravo – Dance school in  Geneva

The Cours Bravo were created in Geneva in 1992 by Beatrice Bravo (Swissdance graduate). Currently, we teach ballroom, latin, rock’n roll, salsa and line dance for adults and adolescents (group classes and private lessons).

From waltz to tango through cha cha and salsa, take the first step and join the dance !

See the classes program (pdf) !

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.

WEDDING CHOREOGRAPHY :
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!

Ballroom and Latin Dancing

The social dances include the five ballroom dances – Viennese waltz, slow (English) waltz, foxtrot, quick-step and tango – and the five Latin dances – cha cha cha, rumba, samba, paso doble and jive.
