All Levels, No Partnering
Class will begin with a full body warm-up using proper alignment, technique through the feet and stretching, followed by body isolations, hip action, weight transfer and specific body mechanics used in Latin dance styles. An across-the-floor combination will focus on different rhythms, musicality and fusing the techniques of both Latin dance styles with jazz. The choreography will fuse jazz technique, salsa, and cha cha footwork, and will give students a chance to use their technical training (if applicable), while still adding texture and dynamics to their movements. All levels are welcome and there will be no partnering!
