June 11th – Merengue Dance Lesson
Merengue dancing is light and playful, making it a great dance for beginners and experts alike. It is danced with “walking steps” with a step taken on each beat of the music. While dancers typically use hip motions with this dance, the amount of hip movement varies with personal preference. This dance is considered to be in the same “family” as Salsa and is popular in the nightclub and social dance scenes. Elena and Ramon will break down the basic steps and patterns in a relaxed atmosphere.
July 9th – Bachata Dance Lesson
The Bachata is a playful Latin dance that is typically danced with soft hip motions, turns and side-to-side footwork. The music of Bachata is very recognizable for its predominant use of the electric guitar combined with Caribbean and Latin musical influences. Bachata is danced all throughout the world, including the United States where it is a popular style of dance in Merengue and Salsa nightclubs. Elena and Ramon will break down the basic steps and patterns in a relaxed atmosphere.
August 13th – Salsa Dance Lesson
Salsa is a sexy, energetic and fun partner dance. Unlike some partner dances, it is a very sociable dance – you don’t need to have a regular partner or any partner for that matter. This fun and energetic dance is the most popular of all the Latin dances because it is easy to learn and is fantastic for all ages and dancing abilities. Salsa dancing has many fast turns, exciting footwork, rhythmic hip movements, and lively music.
