Salsa ‘on 2’
Learning to Dance ‘on two’ will allow you to dance other styles quite easily (the opposite is not true …) The basic step is the ‘tipico’ from New York. This choice offers a number of advantages – musical, technical, cultural and it's particularly consistent with the roots of the musical salsa tradition (cuban ‘Son’ – Cha-Cha-Cha – Mambo). If you have any questions about this, don't hesitate: please ask us!
Bachata has its origins in the Dominican Republic, and is reaping a growing success in recent years. It's easier than salsa, with slower tempos and the music is more accessible. It provides a nice and soft approach to Latin dances, and you’re having fun right away. Bachata is part of the program of all beginner sessions during the first 5 classes, in parallel with Salsa. For those who get addicted, we propose a logical sequence with bachata classes at level 2.
Cha-Cha-Cha is a Cuban musical genre dating from the 1950s. It is also a dance whose title comes from the sound produced by the friction of the dancers' feet on the ground:) Chacha has been for a long time known as a Latin dance (ballroom), with - from our point of view - all the technical drift and loss of roots that are the consequences of its international journey for more than a half century. Nevertheless, the lessons we propose are impregnated with true popular Cuban culture and the music that we play is authentic and full of 'sabor'.
