For all levels, Contemporary Latin/Ballroom is a practice based in the foundations of ballet, American modern techniques, and Latin/ballroom principles. Each class begins with a rigorous warm-up designed to hone physical coordination, balance, and strength. Exercises are rooted in rhythm and musicality, evolving fluidly from individual movement to paired actions of moving together. Students will develop and practice foundational skills of partnering, emerging from dances like the cha-cha, rumba, salsa, waltz, merengue, samba, and tango.
