This class is perfect for newcomers who have never danced before. It will give you the essential introduction to Bachata, Cha-Cha, Rumba, Waltz, Swing. You’ll learn the basic patterns and work on timing, leading and following. Students are strongly encouraged to take this course for two sessions. New this session: Bachata is a style of dance that originated in the Dominican Republic. The basics to the dance are three-step with a Cuban hip motion, followed by a tap including a hip movement on the 4th beat. The movement of the hips is very important because it’s a part of the soul of the dance. The classes includes instruction, practice and socializing. As with learning any sport or musical instrument, learning to dance involves repetition, so it benefits many to repeat the classes to grow as a dancer. Please note that we rotate partners for maximum learning and social practice, but dancers who wish to stay together may do so. Simply let your teacher know you do not wish to change partners.
