Philosophy

Lana takes a completely different approach to teaching dance as compared to other Swing schools in Berlin. As a student, this is what you can expect:

  • Continuous, progressive groups with no fixed end. Once you join a class with Lana, you will continue to progress and learn with that group as long as the group remains stable.

  • No arbitrary labels or block system. The only time a label is applied is when the group is initially formed.

  • Each dancer and group is unique. Rather than having a fixed set of ideas to teach per group, Lana believes in adapting to each class so that no one is left behind and no one feels bored. She strives to create the learning "sweet spot" in each and every class.

  • Personalised coaching via small, intimate classes. There is a right number of couples to create the optimal learning environment.

Workshops

Dance is a language, and there is no better way to learn a language then through the intensive immersion that workshops provide. Usually taking place on a single day, Lana's workshops focus on a particular dancing concept so that you can make serious progress in your dance.

Confused about weight transfer and counter body movement? Don't quite understand counter balance or "connection"? Want to jumpstart your Balboa dance with a crash-course in the fundamentals? These and many more are topics that Lana's workshops have covered.
