BACHATA BASICS/INTERMEDIATE | TUESDAYS 7:00PM – 8:00PM

Salsa clubs will often play Bachata music too. Learn the fundamentals of this sensual, romantic dance. In this class, we teach beginning lead and follow techniques along with basic footwork and core body movement. Then we expand upon what you have learned with more difficult combinations and turn patterns, complex syncopated footwork, body movements and isolation, and a deeper understanding of the rhythm of Bachata. Every four weeks we will be teaching new combinations and footwork to give you the opportunity to repeat the series and continue learning. More info on Bachata can be found on our FAQs page.

 

LADIES STYLING | THURSDAYS 6:00PM – 7:00PM

Samantha Brava teaches Ladies’ Styling emphasizing footwork, style, and technique. Ladies Styling is the part of Salsa when couples dance apart from one another in a passionate seduction between the sexes. Ladies challenge the men with no-holds-barred femininity: rolling hips, shimmying shoulders, and the tossing hair. Men draw the women back with striking footwork and dynamic combinations. In this course we not only teach you the moves, but also the techniques to set the dance floor and your partner on fire.
