Contemporary Latin/Ballroom

Semester: 

Fall

Level: All levels
Instructor: Ilya Vidrin
For all levels, these classes are based in the foundations of ballet and classical modern techniques and Latin/Ballroom dynamics. Starting with a warm-up to support pelvic stability and core strength with a focus on physical rhythm, coordination, and musicality, the class moves through movement patterns from dances like the cha-cha, rumba, salsa, merengue, samba, and tango. Exercises build and move fluidly from solo to partnered actions which emerge and evolve through foundational Latin/Ballroom principles.
Location: Harvard Dance Center, Studio 1

Attire: Workout/dance wear or anything comfortable to move in and socks.
