  • Where are you located?
    We are located in the beautiful heart of Hamburg, Hafen City.
  • Do I need to bring a partner?
    No partner needed. We rotate partners throughout the class so that you can experience different types of dancers. First this gets you comfortable dancing with others, and secondly you can improve much more quickly by learning to adapt to different styles. Now you can take these skills to the social dances!
  • What languages do you teach in?
    Our classes are primarily taught in English. However, German can be supplemented when needed. **Charlott is a native German speaker and Issam is a native French speaker. Both speak Spanish.
  • What shoes/clothes should I bring?
    Wear whatever you feel most comfortable in, that also allows for a moderate range of motion for your body.
  • How can I register?
    To register, simply write us a short message via email at, that you would like to join one or more of our programs. To stay up to date with our registration periods, make sure to follow our Instagram account @icb_studios.
  • How can I pay?
    The fees for our programs must be paid via bank transfer. The bank account details will be provided via email once you have registered.
  • I danced Bachata before, which class is best for me?
    We recommend all new students to visit our Bachata Foundations program before continuing with Intermediate. The Bachata Sensual Foundations program is the foundation for all further classes. The purpose of this program is to familiarize you with the essential techniques of the Bachata Sensual Style created by Korke and Judith.
  • Do you offer a free trial class?
    As of now we do not offer a free trial class. Please reach out for more information regarding our dance packages.
  • The new program has already started. Can I still join?
    In case there are any spots left, we may accept participants until up to two weeks after the start of a program. Afterwards, we do not accept any more participants. In this case, you will have to wait until we open registrations for the following class program.
  • I am a beginner, can I join the Ladystyling class?
    The Ladystyling class is not suitable for complete beginners. Our Ladystyling class is designed for followers who are already comfortable with dancing Bachata in a couple and have an understanding of the Bachata Sensual style. However, basic arm, hands and head styling for followers is taught in our Bachata 0 and Bachata Sensual 1 partnerwork classes.
  • I will not be able to join every week. Can I come as a drop-in?
    For our regular partnerwork programs, drop-ins are not possible. We have fixed programs with regularly attending participants to ensure a good balance between leaders and followers as well as a continuous learning progress. However, drop-ins are possible for our weekly styling classes (Thursdays, 20.00 - 21.00) as well as in our weekly Bachata Social with an open-level pre-class (Sundays, 19.00 - 23.00).
