WHAT DO WE TEACH ?
Cuban Salsa / Casino – Partner dances
In Cuba, a popular dance known as Casino was marketed abroad as Cuban-style salsa or Salsa Cubana to distinguish it from other salsa styles when the name was popularized in the 1970s. Dancing Casino is an expression of popular social culture; Many Cubans consider casino a part of their social and cultural activities centering on their popular music.
You will learn how to understand the rythm, how to guide your partner and differents steps and patterns.
We teach two levels – one absolute beginner and an Improver level
Dominican Bachata – Partner dances
Bachata is worlwide known, but music and dance evolved from the original and authentic Dominican Bachata to Sensual/ Modern/ Sexy Bachata.
While the Modern/ Sexy/ Sensual bachata is a mix between salsa, and hip hop, the Dominican Bachata is focused on the connection with your partner and your footworks.
You will learn how to control your balance and exxecute the different footworks on different music, rythm, and understand a bit more about the Dominican songs and culture.
We teach one open level – Go through the basics and will go to the pace of the group. We will not let someone behind ! Try it 😉

Kizomba – Partner Dances
Kizomba is a dance from Africa.
Dance has a huge influence from Semba de Angola –
Music, rythms and instruments are influenced by Lusophones countries such as Angola, Mozambique, Guinee-Bissau, Cape Verde, etc and also by French Caribbean zouk rythm
It is characterized by a slow rythm, and a totally different connection between dancers than in Salsa, Bachata or (Brazilian) Zouk.
It is a partner dance – but you can come alone or with friends. We will switch partners in order to improve our Leader/ Follower Skills and get to know each others.
Here is a short video of Kizomba, involving mainly fundamentals, connection and musicality :
