This exciting Latin dance course will provide the foundational steps and basic partner turn patterns for the Latin dances of Salsa, Merengue, Bachata and Kizomba.
 
Salsa, the most well-known musical style and dance will be explored in depth. Individual footwork patterns will be covered in the beginning of each class. After this individual warm-up, we will then transition into the more challenging aspect of partner dancing.
 
Merengue, the easiest of the Latin dances, will be used to teach the more intricate lead and follow partnering techniques. Students will feel more comfortable in moving their bodies to this fun and energetic genre of dance.
 
Bachata, from the Dominican Republic, has gained popularity around the nation in recent years. While being a flirtatious and sensual dance, Bachata is considered a great tool in getting shy and nervous students to feel more relaxed and confident over time.
 
Kizomba is the newest dance to hit the Latin club scene around the world. Kizomba is a very sensual yet classy Tango-like partnered dance. Since it involves a deeper partner connection and technical footwork patterns, it will be taught toward the end of the course. Kizomba will heighten every dedicated dancer's awareness of body control, balance, musicality and confidence.
