CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Beginner Latin Dance

Each 60-minute class will focus on steps and proper technique for Latin dances such as the Cha Cha, Rumba, and Jive.

In each class, we’ll start with a warm-up, teaching students how to stand, flexibility, hand positioning, stretching, and strength exercises. Following this, we’ll focus on basic Latin dance exercises, including feet movement, positioning, knees, pelvis, ribs, shoulder blades, and how to use different muscle groups. Lastly, students will learn solo dance routines.

Intermediate Latin Dance

This course will focus on NCDA, ISTD, and bronze-level choreography for Latin dances such as Samba, Cha Cha, Rumba, Paso Doble, and Jive. In each 90-minute class, we’ll start with a warm-up, covering how to stand, flexibility, hand positioning, stretching, and strength exercises. Following this, we’ll focus on partnering and holding position. Then, we’ll work on Latin dance basic exercises, NDCA and ISTD bronze/silver routines, and grounds and rounds.
