Modern pair dances
Each of us, watching movies or video clips, thought that it would be great to be able to dance in pairs. Spectacular poses, impressive hand balances, beautiful music and eye-to-eye look – do you think that it is only available for professional dancers and actors? You are wrong! Any pair modern dance can be mastered at the basic level in just a few sessions! Furthermore, you can choose the dance, which is to your liking.
The real pair dances in contrast to the "cinematic" ones are "social", i.e. they are built on improvisation and they can be danced with any partner. You can attend classes both with your partner and alone. Thanks to our lessons, hundreds of people found their future dance partners, and many of them - their second halves.
On Thursdays from 19:00 to 23:00.
Do not be confused by the word "club" — the term means not a sad shifting from one foot to the other, but the entire complex of dances originated from countries of the Latin America. There are lively salsa, romantic bachata, sensual kizomba and many others. These dances are more than movements to music; this is the whole culture of music and relationships between man and woman in dance.
On Mondays from 20:00 to 21:00
Forro is a Brazilian folk and social pair dance. The partners in forro keep close to each other. The man holds the woman's right hand with his left hand as in waltz, his right arm is around her back. The woman's left arm is around the man's neck. In this style, the right leg is between the legs of the woman, following the African tradition of closed thighs. Other styles are performed a little apart or at a distance of decency, holding just with hands. The influence of salsa and other Caribbean dances gave forro the dynamics with various turns and rotations of partners, although it is not always possible on crowded dance floors.

This dance is more calm, incredibly musical, very cozy and delicate, and, sometimes, it is even passionate.
