Dance Styles

All the dance styles we teach are partner dances. The main ones are:

  • Modern Jive, a flashy and fun dance set to modern dance music. It features plenty of fancy-looking spins and dips without complex footwork.
  • Bachata, a Latin dance from the Dominican Republic.
  • Salsa, a popular Latin dance with slightly more complex footwork.
  • Rueda, a exciting group dance that is danced in a large circle.
  • We run occasional special classes introducing other styles. Examples include Cha, Zouk, Rock and Roll. Keep an eye on our newsletters to see what's coming up!
