Our mission: to empower dancers!

Our mission at Dancesportlife is to create education, resources, tools and community that empowers existing dancers as well as inspire new people to start dancing.
One of the ways we do this is with Dancesportlife Academy, which is an online membership platform and community that provides access to world class teachers, quality information and much more to dancers, regardless of age, country or federation.
Our only goal is to promote the joy of dancing, regardless of race, age, gender, country or federation. That's why we are an open-community and hold no bias towards anything/anyone, but promote freedom of speech and a diversity of thoughts.
We have started in 2016
after dancing for a big part of our lives and we've attracted a team of dancers and a very passionate community, that we hope to grow in the future. 

FAQ

I am a complete beginner, should I join this course/membership?

The course has been designed to have value for everyone that understands the basic of ballroom dancing. This is especially valuable to you if you're a competitive (intermediate or advanced) dancer. If you're just starting out, this course won't teach you the syllabus and basic steps. Though, you can always try it and ask for a refund if you don't think it's for you.

If I buy the yearly membership, what will be the price after the first year?

Normally the membership costs $180/year and the course $120. Founding members get a special offer (for the first 500 people) where they save over $180 and get the course for free. By you joining and supporting our mission, we want to guarantee you the lowest price for the membership at $120 year. So you will pay $120 for the first year, and then $120 for every single year after that, unless, of course, you decide to cancel! Remember, we also have a 30-day money back guarantee ;)

I am an advanced dancer, should I join this course/membership?

Yes! We designed the course with you in mind. You will absolutely love the exclusive information that Edita & Mirko have shared in these courses as well as the other members-only benefits if you are to become a member! Trust us, you'll love it.

Will there be other courses in the future?

Yes! We have planned 3 more full courses (latino and ballroom/standard) that will launch in the next 3-6 months as well as monthly Question & Answers sessions. We're also working on having at least 10-15 teachers in 3 months that will teach online private lessons.

What if I try it out and I'm not satisfied?

We're so confident you'll love the course and membership that we're willing to refund your order with no questions asked in the first 30 days. Just email us at [email protected] and we'll take care of you, no worries!
