Dances We Teach:
Argentine Tango – Often described as the most passionate of all the dances. It is sophisticated and sensual. Building a deep connection between partners in order to create a dance full of expression.
Bachata – A Latin dance with simple footwork and strong hip movement. The music is romantic in nature and therefore the movement reflects the story of love and heartbreak.
Bolero – Feel swept away in romance when you dance to the seductive sounds of Bolero! Known for over a century as the “Dance of Love,” Bolero’s smooth rhythm, sensual movements & Rumba-inspired patterns make this dance a favorite of many.
Cha-Cha – a confidence-building, body-shaping, fun-loving dance that inspires introverts and extroverts alike to let loose and enjoy life!
Foxtrot – Today, Fox Trot is no longer a dance your parents used to do. In fact, 60% of the music you generally hear at Weddings, Cruises, Social Night Clubs, Events & Parties are usually Fox Trot’s.
Hustle – While it’s true that it was born in 1972, The Hustle has proven to be more than just a fad dance of a decade. It has transcended it’s roots to be one of the most socially acceptable couple dances of nightclubs around the world and has more than one form to filter to multiple genres of faster music – including pop, electronica, disco and contemporary. With it’s simplicity of steps to the quick rhythm, it’s become a favorite of beginners and advanced dancers alike.
Lindy Hop – Named by Ray Bolger, after Colonel Lindbergh’s flight across the Atlantic. This Swing had as much “getting into the air” as possible. However, the violently acrobatic style used for exhibitions is not the same as the quietly rhythmic Lindy enjoyed by good dancers on the ballroom floor.
Mambo – The fusion of Swing and Cuban music produced this fascinating rhythm and in turn created a new sensational dance.
Merengue – Turns and twisting of the bodies dancing together, the ease of footwork and the excited rhythm of the music makes Merengue a very popular dance in both popular nightclubs and latin clubs.
Salsa – Salsa is the unique blending of traditional Latin sounds and dance steps and the Cha Cha with the freedom and turning actions of Swing and Hustle. A true nightclub dance that fits onto small crowded floors, a real must for Latin social dancing.
Samba – No matter how you dance it, where you dance it or when you dance it, Samba brings the party! If you want to get the adrenaline flowing, add fun exercise, enjoy health benefits and just have more fun and enjoyment out of your life, learn how to Samba!
Swing – With its genre encompassing a variety of dances including Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, Jive, Charleston, West Coast Swing and East Coast Swing; this dance is widely known for its high energy moves and turns.
Tango – Historically, American Tango is derived from it’s grandparent, the Argentine Tango. Having crossed seas to Europe and North America in the early 1900’s and 1910’s, the dance was made into a more social adaptable form by expert dancers in both regions. Subsequently, two new forms of Tango materialized: International by the French and English, and then American style by the Castles and Arthur Murray of the United States.
Viennese Waltz -Though it is one of the more challenging dances, the benefits outweigh any of it’s intricate footwork and constantly turning patterns. Viennese Waltz is a dance that inspires nostalgia, anyone who wants to develop grace, poise, and confidence (and who isn’t afraid of a little exercise) should learn this beautiful dance.
West Coast Swing -This partner dance breaks from tradition with it’s slot-based figures and it’s rubber-band look. It is the dance that truly allows partners to improvise while still dancing together, creating an atmosphere of social ease between couples.
Wedding Dance Lessons – It is our experience that every couple has different needs, preferences and time schedules but everyone has the ability to be a good dancer with enough time. Wouldn’t it be great to have the romance of dancing for the rest of your lives together!
