We believe that one of the fastest and easiest way of becoming a better social dancer is to combine 3 strategies:
1. Learn the lead and follow techniques that help you communicate with your partner
2. Learn how to move your own body in a clear and beautiful way through solo dancing
3. Develop an understanding for the dance by studying it’s history and evolution

The Chase Festival classes are designed to “hit the sweet spot” of those three strategies.


The Chase Festival is all about digging into the vintage clips and drawing inspiration from them. In each class, your teachers show their favourite clips to share their source of inspiration with you – taking the best from the old days and bringing it into the now.


Almost all classes will be held at the Kongresshaus Stadthalle Heidelberg – Neckarstaden 24, 69117 Heidelberg.
