Class Descriptions
Cha Cha Cha
Cha Cha Cha is definitely one of the most sensual Latin dances around. Learn to find the Tumbao rhythm to help you understand how to dance Cha Cha Cha the RIGHT way. You will focus on rhythm, timing and learn smooth partnerwork to have fun on the dance floor. Become one with the music as most Cha Cha Cha dancers have discovered.

Intermediate Salsa
Now that you've got the basics, lets get cooking! Learn footwork/shines, spinning technique for both leads and follows, styling and of course some really cool partnering that highlights both the leads and follows. Its' time to sizzle on the dance floor. Pre-Requisite: Beginning Salsa 2 series(Twice), 6 months experience or instructor approval)

Bachata is a romantic dance from the Dominican Republic that focuses on true leading and following technique in a closed embrace. Learn from Portland's most celebrated Bachata couple! We will focus on the basic rhythm, timing, steps and turns and show you how to make bachata very interesting on the dance floor.

Don't forget to bring some comfortable clothing AND it is highly recommended that you do not use rubber sole shoes during the class as they tend to stick to the floor and not allow you to learn properly. Also make sure you bring a bottle of water to quench your thirst.
