Latin Dance: Bachata (LD-B)

This course will provide the foundational steps and partner turn patterns for the romantic Latin dances of Bachata, Kizomba and Zouk.

Bachata, a very flirtatious and sensual partner dance derives its roots from the Dominican Republic. Bachata's simplicity makes it a very beginner friendly dance for both the lead and follow. Students will be exposed to individual footwork patterns that incorporate "shines and syncopation". Progressive musical interpretation of popular Bachata songs will also be covered throughout the course.

Kizomba is the newest dance to hit the Latin club scene throughout the world. A very sensual yet classy Tango like dance, Kizomba involves a deeper partner connection and technical footwork. Kizomba will heighten awareness of body control, balance, musicality and confidence.

Zouk, an upbeat partner dance originating in the Caribbean and popularized in Brazil, involves flowing dance movements. You will easily learn close connection leads and graceful footwork. Body isolation drills, stylish head and hip movements will also be covered in this course.

Try out these "mellow" Latin dances, move your body in a very unique and fun way. Learn from the world travelled SalsaSoulseros dance team. No prior dance experience or partner is necessary. Sign up soon since space is limited!
