Learn a fun and flirty dance style to break out anywhere.
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.
Get fierce, sensual, and sexy with our Heels class.
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.

In the last decade, the genre has grown in popularity in the North American and European dance industries as well! Students will focus on developing body control, musicality, and that essential reggaeton groove to commit to the music.
