$20.00 Latin Dance Essentials
Wayne Dyer said "When you dance your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It's to enjoy each step along the way!" And that's exactly what the goal is with this workshop . . . Latin Dance Essentials, led by our special guest instructor Nancy Atkinson, is all about social dancing made simple. You'll learn merengue, bachata and salsa. This workshop not only teaches the basic steps in a lively and fun routine, but also touches on a few simple principles that will transform your movements into those of a dancer. Although this is NOT a partners' class and no partner is necessary, Nancy will throw in basic partnering tips for those who want to take their new skills onto the dance floor! Stick around after class for some Latin-inspired refreshments!
Nancy Atkinson, a good friend of our Aneta's, resides primarily in St. Lucia. She has over a decade of ballroom and Latin dance training, including tutelage under renowned dance instructors. Having lived most of her adult life in the Caribbean, Nancy has a strong affinity for the basic rhythms from which such dance cadences as merengue, salsa and bachata have evolved, adding a layer of depth to her musicality. Her social graces and vibrant personality allow her to create connections in each community she visits with a lasting and beneficial impact.
