How it

Our methodology has 8 steps: warming up, stretching, in front of the mirror, presenting the couples, steps, interaction, relaxation and messages.

Presently in our methodology there are 7 levels of graduation, transparent, white, blue, advanced blue, black, advanced black and red, that are conquered at the Necklace Exam, one of our most important events. The exams take place every 3 months for beginners and every 6 months for experts.

The exam exists to maintain the organization and high level of quality of the dance and of the classes, helping the student to better absorb the rhythm and leading according to each necklace.
