DANCE ​LATIN RHYTHMS​ CLASS

This is a 4-week series designed for beginner-intermediate students to learn and enjoy 5 popular Latin rhythms: Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Cumbia & Samba!

Explore the possibilities of your body and how to communicate with others through dance, rhythm and flavor! Partners are not necessary!

This class is taught by Venezuelan dance instructor Juliana Mendonca. Juliana’s teaching style is not a traditional ballroom style latin dance class. She first teaches her students to connect to their body and to connect to the rhythms before getting to the steps and turns.
