Salsa and Bachata originated in Latin America in the early 1900s and are now danced all over the world. Unlike classic forms of dancing like Jazz, Ballet and contemporary, these are based on strict technique and rules around leading and following. These can also be danced solo to the music.
Vaibhav and Iwona have been regularly teaching bachata in the UK (London and Oxford) for over 3 years and combined they have experience of more than 15 years in Salsa and Bachata. Vaibhav has also performed and taught internationally in Denmark, Hungary, Spain and Portugal. They have only recently moved to Slough and want to share their knowledge of these dance forms with Slough and build a Latin Dance Community. They travel regularly to Latin festivals in Europe to keep learning. The salsa and bachata styles they predominantly dance and teach are the ones that are danced all over Europe and America.
The structure of the workshops is as follows:
1. Salsa Class – 45 minutes
2. Bachata Class – 45 minutes
3. Social – 1.5 hours
The first 1.5 hours will be focused on learning how to dance salsa and bachata. This will include a little bit of talking around the background of each of the dances, the music, and the style of dance we will teach. Following on from that, we will work on some essential footwork: steps, turns, body isolations and shines. Then on, we will learn to execute these together with a partner. We will rotate partners during the workshop so everyone gets to learn to lead and follow in the same way. For the last 1.5 hours, we will play a variety of latin music so you can put everything to practice and get to dance with everyone, socialise and get to know each other.
