BACHATA

Learn a fun and flirty dance style to break out anywhere.

With Dayanis Mondeja, Skizzo Arnedillo & Leonel Linares

Bachata is by far the most romantic Latin dance performed in clubs today. Partners dance much closer together than in salsa, and bachata involves a great deal of upper body control. With its distinctive music and fun, flirty movements, you are sure to fall in love with this Dominican treasure!

In this class, you will learn basic Bachata steps, men’s and ladies’ techniques, and turn patterns up to an intermediate level.

Private dance lessons are also available! Please contact us to find out more about our rates and availability.

Open Level Classes:

  • Mondays 8:00 - 9:00 PM

HEELS

Get fierce, sensual, and sexy with our Heels class.

With Estefano Gil

Heels dance, also known as ‘stiletto dance,’ is a relatively new style, having emerged and grown in popularity in the late 1990s and early 2000s. It borrows techniques from a range of other styles: complex footwork from jazz, ballroom, Latin, and go-go dance; torso isolations from hip hop and belly dance; and fluid body language from contemporary dance. Heels dance is named for its most distinguishing feature: wearing high-heeled shoes during performances.

This class focuses on developing its students’ confidence and sensuality as they learn foundational Heels techniques through walks, freestyle, and choreography.

Open Level Class:

  • Tuesdays 7:00 - 8:00 PM

JAZZ BURLESQUE

Embrace your inner diva with Jazz-Burlesque!

With Maryorie Flores

The word “Burlesque” has become synonymous with sexy and theatrical, which makes sense when you consider where the dance style originally comes from: in the 17th century, Burlesque was used as a type of comedic, provocative interlude in Italian variety shows. It included solo dances, a female chorus, slapstick humor, and sometimes striptease acts (though not always)! Today, the goal of our Burlesque-Jazz dance class is to create a supportive environment that encourages women to feel safe and to grant the power and freedom to express our most sensual side. Students can also expect to learn the foundations of jazz technique!

Private dance lessons are also available! Please contact us to find out more about our rates and availability.

Intermediate Level Classes:

  • Mondays 5:30 - 7:00 PM (Leonel Linares)

  • Wednesdays 8:00 - 9:00 PM (Maryorie Flores)

REGGAETON

This one’s for all our reggaetoneros out there!

With David Machicado

Reggaeton dance is a fun, energetic style that’s influenced by hip hop dance and Latin American and Caribbean music. It’s extremely popular throughout the Spanish-speaking Caribbean, in countries including Puerto Rico, Panama, Cuba, Colombia, and Venezuela. In the last decade, the genre has grown in popularity in the North American and European dance industries as well!

At Sol Dance Center, Reggaeton classes are taught by acclaimed dance teachers David Machicado and Dayanis Mondeja. Students will focus on developing body control, musicality, and that essential reggaeton groove to commit to the music.
