Salsa: In a nutshell, Street Salsa is a Latin partner dance with roots in Africa, Cuba and Puerto Rico. Made famous in New York in the 50s & 60s; Street Salsa has made its way in Singapore in the last 6-7 years and has become an undying dance craze It incorporates turn patterns initiated by the ‘leader’ (a role typically adopted by the male dancer) and executed by the ‘follower’ (usually the female dancer). Danced to the pulsating 8-beat Latin rhythm, Salsa is infectious with its hip work, calculated body movements, shimmies, twirls and turns.
Street Cha-Cha: Yet another Latin partner dance, Street Cha-cha was created in Cuba by a Cuban violinist called Enrique Jorrin in 1954. The cha-cha footwork produces a series of small gliding steps that barely touch the floor and careful weight shifting. The cha-cha includes a lot of hip motion.
Merengue: This is a type of lively, joyful music and dance that comes from the Dominican Republic. There is a lot of hip action and rhythmic gyrating of the pelvis when one does this dance. Merengue dancing takes up very little space, and is ideally suited to small crowded dance floors.
Bachata: Bachata’s bluesy singing -- typically accompanied by guitar base and generally punctuated on the bongo and the maracas -- has its roots in the underbelly of the Dominican Republic. The dance focuses on jaunty hip-gyrating and footwork. Danced in close proximity with a partner, Bachata is very sensual and allows a good flow of connection between leader and follower.
Salsa Casino Rueda: In the 1950s Salsa Rueda (Rueda de Casino) was developed in Havana, Cuba. Pairs of dancers form a circle (Rueda in Spanish), with dance moves called out by one person. Many of the moves involve rapidly swapping partners. — so you get to dance with everyone in the circle! This course is for both sexes but students must have Salsa dance background.
Cardio Salsa: A fusion of aerobics and Latin dance, Cardio Salsa is the hottest way to get fit. Expect squats, lunges and common exercise routines to be combined with Afro-Caribbean body movements, nifty solo Salsa footwork and Merengue hip & pelvic body isolation. Get a taste of Samba, Salsa, Merengue, Afro-Cuban Rhumba as you burn calories to hot, pulsating Latin sounds.
Pole Groove: Unlike Pole Dance courses, Pole Groove focuses more on Exotic Dance choreography against the pole as a backdrop. Relying less on Pole Tricks, this course teaches students dance routines and less acrobats.
