Reggaeton is the hot dance of Latin nightclubs, and it has been influenced by different dance styles, such as hip hop, dancehall reggae and the Caribbean and South American traditional dances, for example Afro dances. Reggaeton is characterized by strong dynamic fluctuations, polyrhythms and playing with chest and hip isolation in particular. Both strong accents and soft sensual movements are present and they alternate.
Salsa Solo Beginners’ Class takes you to the rhythm of salsa and we will go through basic steps and technique of salsa, body movements and rhythmics.
Bachata is a sensual Latin dance that comes originally from the Dominican Republic. During the class, we will concentrate on footwork, feminine hand and arm lines as well as body language.
The workshops are held by the founder of Dance Studio Flama, Anna Tolppa. Anna fell in love with dancing early. She started with classical ballet at the age of five and continued her dance studies also with jazz and show dance in her childhood and adolescence. Since 2010, she has concentrated on Latin dance. She trained to become a salsa instructor under the direction of a Cuban dance teacher, Ramón Silverio.
