    Salsa, Merengue, and Bolero

If you have completed one of Darrell’s or Sarah’s recent classes, then this class is for you!

This Group Class will meet each Thursday from 7:30 – 8:45 pm, beginning 24 March 2011 and running until 5 May 2011, for a total of seven sessions.

In this 75-minute class meeting for a total of seven sessions, we build upon skills you know in Salsa and Merengue (and perhaps other dances you already know, like Rumba or Cha Cha). This class will use those skills to present Bolero (another Rhythm-style dance).

Students should be familiar with cuddles, hammerlocks, under-arm turns, and the movement-of and reaction-to spacethese are skills that both Darrell and Sarah teach in their beginner/new dancer classes. You will continue to refine these skills in each more advanced class that you take. In addition to having greater mastery of these basic skills, by the end of class you will be very comfortable in Salsa, Merengue, and Cha Cha.

Along with partnering, musical interpretation, in-class performances (for the other class participants – optional, but encouraged), developing greater strength/balance/flexibility, movement technique, and unlocking your individual and combined creativity, course material will introduce topics such as light and shade, acceleration, using changes in elevation, delayed turns, dynamic power, shared weight, dips/tricks, and partner communication/sensitivity.

This class is designed for dancers who have some experience with partner dancing and will move at an appropriate pace.

Please, no Street Shoes on the dance floor. Dance shoes, dance sneakers, or stocking feet are all fine.

Pre-registration is required. Contact the Instructor to reserve space in this class and to ask any other questions.
