In Latin Mix Dance we will explore a mix of Latin rhythms and the dances to match. No partner required. No experience necessary. All levels welcome. We will go over some solo work, arm styling, and partnership skills! Some popular Latin dances include merengue, salsa, and bachata. Whether you want to go out and dance socially, explore new music, or just have a good work out, it is all available in Latin Mix Dance. Regular work out attire is fine. For Latin Dance it is a must that we feel confident in what we wear. Socks are fine, shoes with straps, or smooth sneakers will work. No chunky rubber sneakers. Make sure you can lift your arms comfortably.
