Bachata! Beginner/improver and intermediate classes. Bachata is taking over the Latin dance world so now is the time to learn and join our community!
Classes will be structured around the Sensual Bachata syllabus and teaching method of the creators of the style - Korke and Judith.
And the intricate footwork and casual party dancing style of Dominican Bachata.
7.45pm Foundation - Beginner/improver
No partner necessary. No prior experience is required for the foundation course. Improver/intermediate level will assume prior knowledge of foundation level techniques so please do that level first or equivalent.
We have hired a beautiful yoga studio in the city centre, giving you a supportive environment with no alcohol needed or pressure to buy drinks.
Each level will be structured as a 4 week cycle building on the previous ones to facilitate greater learning and retention.We will focus on accurate technique, leading and following, and most importantly how to apply that to social dancing. We hope to give you the confidence to join in the many social events happening all over the world. They will also stand alone as individual classes if you can't make one or two.
The workshops are run by Luke (and a guest teacher) who has been dancing Bachata for 7 years and Salsa for 13 years, and teaching and DJing both for 6 years. He has a distinctly Latino style fused with modern European techniques. He studied extensively in Cuba, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic and has danced a lot all over the uk and Latin America. Luke's dance partner Bonita will be back to join in from the end of July.
The cost is only £6 per class or £20 for a 4 week cycle if you pay up front.
We'll be there to welcome you and there will ample chance to get to know everyone else if you want to. We have a beautiful soft wood floor so no outdoor shoes - just soft soled suede dance shoes or socks only please.
Hope to see you there!
