45 min Private Partner Dance Lesson
I've been a professional dancer and educator for 10 years and own a boutique partner and social dancing instructional studio in Hillcrest. I have a pretty specialized method of helping people from all levels understand partner dancing much better to help them make dances like Salsa, Argentine Tango, American Ballroom or Latin FEEL comfortable, confident and connected. I specialize in Salsa and Argentine but I have been in professional Ballroom for almost a decade and can teach a wide variety of styles and help you understand how music and social dance works together. Dancing is a wonderful activity for couples to connect over and for individuals to understand their body and use of physicality and energy as well as just have fun, work out mentally and physically, and enjoy a social activity. It's also excellent for wedding couples! So many unique benefits and I love to help people discover them all! It's amazing how much you can learn in a 45 minute lesson! We start by improving your connection and you can learn whatever dance steps you like. Usually in the first lesson we cover connection and between 1 and 3 basic moves depending on your learning curve:)
