Adapted for small spaces, this is a class focusing on high-energy based movement while including empowered space for joy, community, and ritual. Together students will explore the social and communal Latin Diaspora of movement, migration, and music from Mexico, the Caribbean, South America, and the United States. Drawing from the foundations of salsa, cumbia, bachata, and cha-cha in both traditional and contemporary contexts, the class will take students through a lush warm-up, movement investigations, tasks, and combinations. Includes studies in horizontal and vertical weight, isolations, polycentric movements, and hip whining techniques. No previous experience needed and all are welcome! ¡Vamos a bailar!
