A very energetic Latin dance. Lots of
fun, complete with spins, sharp movement, and crisp turns. Very popular
in Latin clubs along with merengue. Styles varies depending on where
you are from.
Costa Rican salsa in general goes side
to side but LA style for example goes forward and backwards. This dance
is also similar to Mambo. A great dance to learn if you want to break
into the latin club scene not only in Atlanta but all over the U.S.
Here's a fast Latin dance that never
slows down. Very easy to learn and I often refer to this dance as the
“marching with style”. It's the most popular dance at most Latin clubs
along with Salsa.
Yet another Latin dance
with a wide variety of music from which to choose from. A lot of the
music that you hear on the radio from Christina Aguilera, Santana etc.
You can dance cha cha to,
as well as most of the popular club mixes and even some country music
make for good Cha-Cha.
East Coast Swing/Hustle
This is the most versatile of all the
dances from 50s Rock and Roll, Big Band, Rhythm and Blues and a variety
of today’s music. Lots of spins, very fun. Easy to learn an will
definitely get your feet moving!!
A moderately slow
Latin dance with plenty of wraps, under arm turns and a truck load of
flirtation. Often called the dance of love, you can Rumba to a wide
variety of music from Tito Puente to Jimmy Buffet.
The slowest of the Latin dances. Passion pouring out of
every step, Bolero is a dance with bravado. The moves are long and
sweeping and the Latin style is stretched to the limit. Powerfully
suggestive. If this dance doesn’t stir your blood nothing will!!
Waltz continuous to
be one of the most romantic and elegant dances of all times. With long
sweeping movements constant rotating with stylish poses; the Waltz
definitely commands attention on the dance floor.
It takes a bit more
effort to learn at first compare to other dances, but the patience
really pays off. At first you have to learn to navigate through the
dance floor without bumping into other dancers.
After you get past
the basics of the movements; the patterns becomes easier to grasp and
you will be gliding smoothly through the dance floor in no time.
There are several different styles of Tango. The three
most popular are American, International, and Argentine. Both American
and International travel around the ballroom following the line of
dance. Tango is a stylish, sexy and very popular dance!
