Dance lessons with a mission

We see it happen so often. People have learned ‘a figure’ somewhere and they can only dance that figure with the person they took the dance class with. In other words, they have learned a nice choreo and don’t really know the right techniques behind the figure itself.

We, on the other hand, teach you the correct techniques you need to lead every figure well and what you should do and not do as a woman to become a good follower.

Further more, we also give each dance figure in ‘digestible building blocks’ and we want to encourage you to get started creatively. This way you are able to always create your unique dance, instead of having to learn hundreds of figures by heart.

In short, it is our MISSION to REALLY teach you to dance, so that you can fully enjoy dancing and shine on that dance floor!


Meet the team!

We are Bailando Latino... 4 driven dancers who teach daily with great passion and dedication and who you can find at various dance parties inland and abroad.


Sylvie is our Italian fury of the family. And you will have known that (in a positive sense)! She transformed herself over the years from a ballerina to a Salsa and Bachata star on the dance floor…

Sylvie teaches Salsa (with Pieter) and Bachata (with Andreas) with us.


Dorian could, so to speak, dance rather than walk and has been constantly involved in dance since childhood. This of course brings with it tons of experience in different dance styles. Today, however, Dorian is fond of Kizomba (and that’s putting it mildly). As soon as the school bell rings (she also teaches), she rushes to the next Kizomba party.

It goes without saying that Dorian gives the Kizomba lessons with us, together with Pieter.


Pieter is a very passionate dancer, DJ, soccer player, fitness enthusiast and web developer. There must be passion and inspiration in everything he does. Not a day goes by without Pieter having done something with music or dance.

Pieter gives dance lessons with us Salsa (with Sylvie) & Kizomba (with Dorian).


Andreas is our Bachata dancer par excellence. This ‘jump in the field’ breathes Bachata, plays padel, eats Bachata, goes to work, drinks Bachata…

It goes without saying that Andreas takes care of the Bachata lessons with us, together with Sylvie.

Why Bailando Latino?

7 reasons why you should come and dance with us…

Dancing in an open, fun atmosphere

When you come to dance with us, first and foremost we want you to have fun. We are driven in our profession and we want you to do well, but FUN comes first! With us you can and certainly will laugh during the lessons.

Easily accessible in the heart of Lier

Our dance school is located in the city centre of Lier and is therefore very easily accessible. Moreover, there is no shortage of parking. There is a very cheap paid parking 100 meters from our dance school, but around the centre there are also several other parking facilities that are FREE after 7 pm. In other words, the ideal location.

No choreos, but really learning how to lead and follow

We know from experience that (more complex) figures are difficult to remember. That is why we teach in ‘building blocks’ that you can combine yourself. This makes you a much better dancer and in this way the ‘learning material’ is much easier to digest and to remember!

With or without a dance partner

With us it is not mandatory to come and dance with a dance partner. On the contrary, we promote to change partners during our dance lessons (not mandatory!). In this way you learn to lead or to follow much better.

If you take several dance lessons with us, you will receive a discount. If you follow 2 series of classes, you will receive the second series at -20% (eg 1 series of Salsa classes and 1 series of Bachata classes).
