Regular classes

Our regular meetings take place every Monday from 19:30 to 23:00.

However, the meetings are temporarily on hold, as long as the situation with COVID-19 in Aachen and surroundings is not good. We hope that we can start them again soon – we will inform you of any update in the website and in the social media.

Courses

In the courses you will learn new movements and figures as well as technique and connection to your partner. During the following free dancing you can then practice and polish up what you learned.

Samba de Gafieira is a couple dance with a lot of joie de vivre. More info about Samba de Gafieira

We offer a beginners course and an intermediate course.

The beginner course is a beginner course for people with or without previous knowledge. You will learn the basic steps, first variations and everything you need to have fun on the dance floor.

In the intermediates’ course you will deepen your knowledge about the concepts you learned in the beginners’ course, as well as learning new steps and variation.

You do not need a fixed partner – during the course the pairings are regularly rotated.

A course (8x60min) costs 50 EUR. From a registration in pairs there is a 20% discount (40 EUR p.p.). From a registration with four persons there is a discount of 30% (35 EUR p.p.).

Free dancing is always open for everyone.

An overview of the dates of our courses, parties and other events can be found under Events.

Here some of our students train after class by combining the newly learned figures with their already familiar movements.

To reach the level of the professional dancers of Rio, a lot of dedication is required. But even with a little practice you can have a lot of fun on the dance floor and enjoy the beautiful combination of elegance and dynamics that Samba offers.
