Dance lessons for young people
Salsa / Bachata Mix
Youth dance in Roskilde
Salsa / Bachata mix with Maykel and Elena
For young people from 15 to 29 years
Become a versatile dancer! This team for young people (up to a maximum of 29 years) is for you who want to become a good dancer with knowledge from both worlds. Yes, we are talking about the two dominant genres in the Latin dance scene; salsa & bachata.
On this team you have the opportunity to learn elements, figures and steps that can be used in both dances. Together with other young dancers, you will learn everything from the basic foundation of the steps, weight change, the frame and beautiful turns.
The teaching takes place in pairs, and from the very first day you will explore how to connect elements from both dances and apply them in your partner dance.
Our vision is to prepare you as a dancer who does not feel limited by having only knowledge and experience in one of the dances. You learn to interpret the rhythms, the tempos, but you also learn about the contrasts and similarities in salsa and bachata.
Get ready to become a versatile and skilled dancer. Salsa and bachata are just waiting for you to grab your friend, partner or neighbor to begin this new season.
The teaching is 2×45 min. with a short break in between. Ie. 1 1/2 hours of tuition instead of one hour’s price (normal price DKK 100 per hour).
