At MDS we offer salsa, bachata and Argentine tango as separate classes and they all come under the category of Street Latin.
Salsa is the most popular Street Latin dance, originating from New York City created from a mixture (a salsa) of Caribbean and Latin American dance influences. Salsa is a partner dance, although there are recognized solo steps. In Beginner Salsa, we tackle the basic foundations and dancing safety. In Intermediate, we add extra styling and variation. We also have a salsa playlist which you can listen to on Spotify!
A sensual street dance originating from the Dominican Republic that is now taking over the world, bachata is the most romantic and sexy dance there is yet, mixing both passion for dancing and skill. It is filled with smooth hip movements which enhance the already romantic and sensual music.
Zouk is grounded on wave-like movements, elongated steps and striking hair movements by the lady. This class is open level, and you learn the foundation rhythms and moves, how to dance in an open and a closed embrace, and a few styling tips to ice the cake.
Argentine Tango is all about lead and follow. It involves smooth flowing combination of elements such as leg wraps, turns and sweeps. You begin with mastering the Tango walk and connection in order to lead and follow, and then go on to challenge more complex motions like kicks, lifts and blocks for performances. Will you dance it slow and seductive or quick with an angry passion? Tango is a dance for the artist in us all. We also have an Argentine tango playlist which you can listen to on Spotify!
