Level descriptions:


The Curious level is suitable for those with a solid knowledge of all the basics. Numerous rhythm and footwork variations, varying leading/following techniques and concepts, and moves are now waiting for you. Also, you will gradually get used to different tempos and improve your feeling for music.


The Ambitious level is for anyone who wants to regularly challenge themselves and their dance technique and work specifically on details. You are aware and stress-free in your dancing. You already have a good understanding of the most important leading/following techniques and concepts, as well as musicality, different rhythms and footwork variations. 


After many years of experience in swing dance, and numerous local or international workshops and festivals, you are ALWAYS confident on the dancefloor at ALL tempos and with EVERY dance partner. Here you can work intensively on details and techniques. 

*The Confident level is the highest level we can offer in Innsbruck, it is internationally seen as Advance+
We as organizers will take the liberty to confirm individual applications for this level, if we do not know you we might ask you for a video. Thank you for understanding.
