In these classes you’ll learn how to lead & follow new Bachata moves smoothly and make them comfortable & easy for you and your partner, with gracious style! All the moves are for social dancing, so don’t expect long show choreo routines. 😉 ”

Johanna and Omar are versatile and experienced dancers and teachers and they teach i.a. bachata, cha cha, kizomba and salsa together. Through their I Dance Helsinki -organization, Omar and Johanna have long been building the Afro-Latin scene in Helsinki by teaching, bringing foreign artists to Finland and arranging festivals and parties in a weekly basis.

Johanna has danced several different dance styles. Johanna won Salsa European Championship in 2010, so she has a lot of knowledge about dance technique and that knowledge she wants to share with her students. As a teacher, she is known for her demanding but encouraging and clear teaching.

Omar’s dancing career has begun with ballroom dance, but it changed later to Afro-Latin dances. Omar’s strengths are musicality as well as his smooth and clear lead. He encourages and provides tools for each individual student’s progress and improvement.

For Omar and Johanna, it is important that everything learnt during the classes can be applied in a social dance setting. They emphasize the importance of leading and following as well as the learning of the basics, not forgetting musicality. Above all, dancing should be fun and feel good.
