Unique pedagogy, appreciated everywhere
While dancing is our biggest passion in life, our teaching is up to par: we have developed our unique pedagogic methods and have shared our insights with teachers from all over the world. We have created an approach that identifies and clarifies a lot of the intangibles of the teaching process, and yet still leaves a lot of freedom for the teacher as well as the students.
And the students’ feedback is that they feel comfortable and enjoy every minute of the class, and that they feel that they have a sense of achievement. The most named word in our feedback forms is fun!

Meet your teachers
In these courses, you’ll get to know Kris and Ali, two passionate swing dance teachers from Germany.
Together, Kris and Ali have been teaching swing dancing to people of all experience levels – from complete beginners all the way to training teachers in our unique teaching methodologies. They have been teaching all around the world, from most cities in Europe, to Israel, Chile and back again. This program contains their best ideas, things that work everywhere for people from all walks of life.
Before Kris dedicated herself to being a swing dance teacher, she worked in astronomy; researching, teaching, and sharing with the public. She always loved teaching, and her years of experience with such different topics have honed her skills so that she can break down very complex things into easy-to-understand pieces. Her goal is always to give you as easy learning experience as possible without watering down the dance.
Ali began his career as a Chemist in Alzheimer research. After 4 years of being fully immersed into the latest discoveries in Alzheimer prevention and treatment studies, he recognized that Swing dancing offers all the benefits of a healthy lifestyle in one single activity. So he decided to dedicate himself to helping busy people live strong, happy and passionate lives through swing dancing.
Thank you for letting Kris and Ali take you on your first steps into your new life as a dancer – or, if you already danced before, letting us be a part of your growth as a dancer. We hope you decide to sign up and start training right away!
Courses have already started, can I still join?
Yes! All classes are available for you to watch and train at any time.
What payment options do I have?
We have already set it up so that you can pay with PayPal or credit card. However, if you prefer to do a direct bank transfer please write to us at [email protected].
For how long do I have access to the video?
Those who purchased the individual courses prior to the membership program have access to the videos for 12 months of access to the videos. With the “Full-Pass”-membership program you have access to ALL the courses throughout the period you stay as a member. When you stop your membership, you’ll also stop having access to the program. You can switch between the Full-, and Social-pass on a monthly basis.
Do my partner and I need separate accounts?
For now, yes. We will look into this and are considering partner and group prices for the future, but for now in order to provide the courses quickly we are doing the accounts and pricing per person.
Do I get support from a teacher if I don’t understand the video?
Yes, you can get online support from our teachers.
What language are the teachers going to speak in the videos?
In the videos, the teachers will speak English. However, in many of our online sessions you can also ask your question in other languages such as German. But sometimes even Swedish, Persian and French as well 😉
Where and when can I meet the teachers and ask questions?
We have almost daily zoom activities where you can meet someone from the team for questions. Best occasions are the Train Together sessions.
What if I realize that I’m not yet ready for this content or if I do not enjoy this way of learning?
Our videos cover everything from absolute first steps of swing dancing all the way to something that even professionals appreciate. If you notice that the program you are currently working on is not the right one for you at this moment, you can easily switch to something else within the library.
How do I cancel my subscription?
The full-pass and social-pass come as monthly subscriptions. You can cancel these anytime you want on a monthly basis. Meaning, from the moment you cancel, the month (30 days) you’ve started will continue and your access will be removed once that full 30 days have passed.
The process of cancelling a subscription starts with an email to [email protected].
If you have used paypal to book your subscription, you can, in addition (meaning, you still should let us know per email), go to your paypal panel and end the subscription from your paypal account. Currently, stripe does not seem to offer such options. However, we can stop it from our account, which is what we will do the moment you request to cancel the subscription.
How can I find out more about the courses and how to join the live sessions?
We have prepared a little course with helper videos on a variety of topics: Getting Started. You can access this course as soon as you’ve created an account, even without a full- or social-pass.
