Timing: Tuesdays at 19:00 – 20:00
Teachers: Claire and Maartje
Location: Fanfare Sint Servatius
Dates: Starts on January 28, 2020, no class Feb 25, last class March 24, 2020
Prices: 64 Euros (regular) or 48 Euros (student/PhD student)

Completely Full! You can add your name to the waitlist here

Registering with a partner is not required, because we rotate partners throughout the class, but doing so increases the likelihood that you will be able to join the class in a specific role. We will put individual registrations on a waitlist and process them as soon as someone in the opposite role registers. If you are flexible about which role you learn, you can also register as “Ambi” and we will assign you to either the leader or follower role depending on availability.
