Latin dances are sultry and exciting: giving a dancer the foundation she needs to dance at parties, weddings, dance clubs, or just home with friends! This class will teach you the basics of the most popular social Latin dances: Salsa, Merengue, Tango, Mambo, Bachata, Cha Cha and Rumba. Foundations of Ballroom Latin dancing include learning to dance a variety of steps while interpreting latin rhythms, foot and leg action, Cuban motion, arm styling, balance, poise, core strength, and stage presence. Once a month, the class will be open to partners, in order to give students a chance to work more deeply on lead and follow, dance floor mechanics, and social dance etiquette. Join in the fun as we learn to dance to a variety of social dance music, and take command of the dance floor!
