Latin dance Courses
for kids and teens

Photo

Since 2012, dancing has been introduced as a compulsory subject in junior high school curricula. Dance lessons not only strengthen athletic skills but also allow you to express yourself in public and create dances with your classmates.

Tiempo’s dance lessons are taught by active dancers from overseas who are visiting Japan. The biggest benefit of Tiempo's dance lessons is that by interacting with foreign instructors of different languages, appearances and cultures at an early age, students can remove the anxiety of interacting with people from different nationalities and develop a more natural and international point of view.

Classes are divided in four levels from age three to high school student age and follow a curricula appropriate for each age group.

In a relaxed atmosphere, you can learn music and dance techniques of various Latin rhythms.
First of all, why not come and experience the class with your children?
