Levels and requirements
No previous experience is required.

Open level classes require a decent amount of experience in any form of solo dancing. That can be for example ballet, solo jazz, or hip hop. If you know you can learn steps quickly and already have basic dance skills acquired, this level is for you.
If you have been doing Electro Swing and/or Shuffle before, you are more than welcome! This level is your chance to learn tips and style straight from Magdalena.
