How to get there:

From metro station Simonis: exit the station and walk towards the city centre (direction opposite to the Basilique). Enter the first street to the left (= rue Leon Fourez), then the first to your right hand side (= chaussée de Jette). We are 50m further to your left hand sinde (N° 239, at the back of the patio). By car from Bruxelles, Liège, Namur: take the tunnels of the Petite Ceinture direction E40 Ghent and Basilique de Koekelberg. Take the exit “Simonis”. At the traffic light take the street straight in front of you (keep the “Royal Flor” shop at your left hand) = Chaussée de Jette (one way). We are 50m further at your right hand side (after Pizzeria La Luna, at n° 239, at the back of the patio). Parking in the Chaussée de Jette, on Boulevard Leopold II, behind the metro station Simonis a little further down the street. By car from Ghent, Lille, Charleroi, Antwerp: on the Ring of Brussels take exit Koekelberg (it is where the E40 starts towards Ghent).

* Is it possible to follow a trial class?
  • We do not have a trial class but it is possible, if you are in couple, to pay the 1st class appart, (12€ pp) and decide at the end of the class, if still places are available, to register for the session.
* Can I register alone?
  • During the class we do change partner so you don't need to register with a partner but we are looking for a balance Leaders/Followers.
    You can register alone (you will arrive on a waiting list) and when a dancer also register alone we will contact you to confirm your registration.
    However we recommand you to register with a partner especially for the women/followers, for the men/leaders in general it is not a problem to register alone.
* Do we change partner during the class?<
  • We do change partner during the classes.
    This helps both leader and follower become better faster, as they both are exposed to different dancers with varying strengths and weaknesses.
    But we won’t force you to change partners. However, we strongly encourage it.
    We know you’ll make progress a lot faster if you do dance with others.
    So yes, it is possible to dance only with your own partner without changing, please in this case do inform the teachers.
* What to wear?
  • Confortable clothes and non-marking indoorshoes are recommended.(shoes with soles that do not leave marks when dragged over floors).
* Does Apollo Swing give private classes?
  • We do also give private classes. For more information, please contact us.
