CUBATON:

The term “CUBATON” originated from the words ‘Cuba’ and ‘Reggaeton’. CUBATON is Reggaeton “a lo cubano” that originated in the early 90s. It is a mix of Reggae, Dancehall, Hispanic Hip Hop, Rap and European Club music, influenced by Cuban rhythms and culture, with intense beats, lyrics and vocals. It is an exciting, passionate and energetic dance style from Cuba that involves body movement as well as basic footwork sometimes combined with some Cuban salsa movement and basic steps.

REGGAETON & DEMBOW:

This class will have a fusion of these two energetic styles:

Reggaeton originated in the late 1990s in Puerto Rico, it is a vibrant dance style deeply influenced by Latin American, Caribbean, and hip hop music. Known for its fun, sexy, and free-spirited vibe, reggaeton has become immensely popular. It mainly involves body movement and isolations as well as basic footwork.

Dembow is an urban style very popular in the Dominican Republic.the main characteristic is its rhythm, which is reminiscent of reggaeton and dancehall music, but with a more constant and faster rhythm. Its dance style is highly characterized by fast footwork.

Ulrik Søberg

Taichi teacher

I have been studying and practicing Taichi and Qigong for almost 20 years. I have studied and trained in Taichi with Sifu Junyuan Liu, Chinese Master of Yang Taichi and resident here in
Denmark.
In addition to training myself, I have several years of teaching experience from volunteer work, schools and institutions, as well as from FOF. I have a master’s degree in philosophy from Aarhus University and am also a trained educator.

A Taichi lesson consists of Qigong, which is also standing meditation and serves as a rooting of the body and warm-up for the Taichi form itself. Then we practice Taichi
form and goes into detail on body positions, breathing and building and strengthening connective tissue and muscles.
I actively use philosophical approaches in my teaching, including the concept of “mastery belief” as I see human health as a holistic process based on my own research and teaching. In other words, health is not just a healthy body or healthy
mind, but also feeling healthy and feeling good at learning new things is part of health.
I have both written about and researched neurological research on emotions and have personally experienced how emotions can be crucial to how we feel healthy and thus feel eager to change our dietary habits or exercise more.

Taichi helps physiological health as well as mental health, while it can support your belief in your ability to change your life and make you smarter about yourself.
So if you’re open to a health journey that will surprise you and experience health benefits you’ve never experienced before, you should give Taichi a try
