Known for its sensual hip action and sexy flair, Latin American dance is gaining popularity on dance floors everywhere. Latin dances hail from several different countries in South and Central America, and most have influences that range far beyond this region. Latin American dance consists of the following five dances: Cha-Cha, Rumba, Samba, Paso Doble and Jive. These dances are now performed all over the world as Latin-American dances in international DanceSport competitions, as well as being danced socially.
As part of our Latin dance class, students will get the chance to learn the five dances; the Cha-Cha with its infectious Cuban beat; the Rumba with its slow, sultry sexy moves; the Samba with its fun, Brazilian carnival feeling; the Paso Doble depicting the spirit of the bull-fight (the man being the matador and the lady being the cape); and the Jive with its roots in Lindy Hop and Swing – all make Latin American dancing an exciting and exuberant experience.
