West Coast Swing
This very popular version of swing is a fun partner dance that moves along a slot, creating an expressive style that matches a variety of popular music.
Bachata is a style of dance that originated in the Dominican Republic. It is danced widely all over the world but not identically.
Bachata music has four beats per measure. In Bachata dancing, the dancer takes three steps to four beats of music. As with Salsa, the step timing is three steps and then a one-beat pause. The knees are flexed on the steps. Given its humble origins, the steps are flat-footed.
East Coast Swing
The very popular version of swing moves in a circular pattern. This is an excellent dance for students who are new on their dancing feet. The East Coast Swing can easily be danced at weddings and nightclubs, to music with an upbeat tempo.
Ballroom / American Social
Ballroom dances include classic partner dances, such as Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Samba, Merengue, The Hustle, and more. Each beautifully elegant and rhythmic dance has its own classic style, personality, history, and feel. The American Social style makes each of these dances an excellent choice for beginners to those who aspire to dance professionally.
This very sensual partner dance is inspired by the sounds of the French Caribean. Now a popular social dance, the medium-slow samba-like rhythm is an incredibly eye-pleasing dance that has recently emerged locally.
