Summer Course Dates
Summer Course 2023: Five weeks of dancing! Monday July 10th until Monday August 7th.
If you missed a lesson, you can join the class on another day. This means that students from the Monday class can join the Wednesday/Tuesday lessons, or the other way around. Please send me SMS beforehand! about missing the lesson and your request to join the other group. Students who follow all lessons cannot catch up, because there aren’t any more options left. You can only catch-up within the same block that you are subscribed to and only if there is space available in the group you requested.
During the school year: there is no possibility for refund or catching up the lessons in the next block/course.
During the summer: there is no refund or catch-up possibility for missing lessons. But you can choose to take SINGLE Lessons.

Exercise Ball (Also known as a ‘Swiss Ball’ Fitness Ball or ‘Fit Ball’)
Using your height to size up your ball: When you stand next to an exercise ball, it should be even or slightly above your knee level. The best way to size up your ball is by sitting on it. When you sit on the ball, knees should be bent at a 90-degree angle and your thighs should be parallel or even with the floor. Find your height and see which ball size you should try first.
Height – Recommended ball size
Under 142cm 45 cm ball
142-160cm 55 cm ball
160-178cm 65 cm ball
178-193cm 75 cm ball
**The measurement of the ball is diameter (measuring from one side of the ball to the other)
Tip: If you doubt between two sizes, choose the biggest one.
Fusion ball (Also known as a Soft Stability Ball or Pilates Soft Ball). A Soft Toy Ball can be used and found in many toy shops.
Size: Between 20 to 23cm in diameter.
Resistance Band (Also known as a TheraBand or Dyna band)
3-5m in length & 6″ / 15cm wide. Medium strength.
Note: the color of the strength changes depending on the supplier.
Tip: choose a band from a strong material to prevent rolling. this one is my favorite: Resistance band 5,5m
Lacrosse Ball (Also known as a Hand Ball, racquetball or Pinky Ball)
Closest to the size of 8″ or 20.5cm in circumference (measurement around the ball) or 6.3cm / 2.5″ in diameter
Note: A Tennis Ball is not recommended. This is a hard small ball.
If above balls are not available, next best option is a pet fetch ball.
