Project Timba

Vision:

Our core project; we want to give you the skills and confidence to get onto the dance floor. We offer courses in different styles that fuse together to Timba: Casino, Rumba Guaguanco, Reggaeton and more.

Our classes are organized by the ÖH at TU (HTU) Graz. Each course starts with a free 'taster' workshop. Beyond the taster workshop, there will be 4 sessions of 90 minutes; time to cover the fundamentals, give you time to practice in class and get you ready for social dancing. You can find all the information about ongoing classes and how to register on the Classes page.

FAQ

  • Do I need to register with a partner?

Not at all! Of course its great if you want to come with a friend, but you are welcome to register as an individual. During class we rotate partners regularly; you'll learn better and faster that way and hey, you get to meet new people, too. :-)

  • But I've never danced before.....

No problem! We'll be starting from the basics; body movement, what to listen for in the music, how to lead and follow.

  • But i don´t speak german !?

No problem! Well - not for you - we try hard to teach most of the time in english, if our english fails we revert to body language :)
