SALSA and MAMBO dance lessons at MOVEIR Dance Studio


We are going to add a little twist to this Dance lesson event by featuring two different Latin Dance lessons for the same night featuring Salsa and the Mambo dance lessons.

The Salsa and Mambo are similar enough that it shouldn't be too difficult transitioning from one lesson to the other. We are featuring both lessons to give members a feel of the two different dance styles so they can get a greater taste of the different Latin dance styles.

---------------------

Attire: 

 Comfortable, dance appropriate attire.

Shoes need to be dry

(since it is a wooden dance floor) so many wear one pair of shoes or boots coming in from the outdoors and change into a dry pair of shoes for the dance floor. Please do not wear flip flops, or anything with a tread. You would want to wear shoes with a smooth sole so you can easily make your turns and ladies you would want shoes that have a secure ankle strap or slip on that fits comfortable yet snugly to provide a stable ankle when dancing.

To get an idea of how the basic Salsa and basic Mambo looks, below are a few YouTube video's:

    • Diane O.

      I signed up for Jim's event...can't promise I will be up to making it. Regarding this event, I won't be dancing, only sitting on the couch on my good left side watching you guys! LOL

  • Diane O.

    O.k. still not up to dancing yet, but if Mark (the owner) can move one of his couches into the room where the lessons are being held, then I will be able to come and watch (I can only recline on my left side, can't fully sit yet....let alone dance). Event is still on and the drawing is still on. :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
